Mafraq celebrates its first anniversary

Scotto ... expanding Mice offerings

THE Mafraq Hotel, Abu Dhabi recently celebrated its first anniversary with over 600 guests of various nationalities attending a day packed with family entertainment and activities at Mafraq Hotel’s family ‘Fun Day.’

Speaking about the year that was, Mario Scotto - general manager of the hotel said.

“The hotel has enjoyed a very successful year, establishing itself in the market as one of the leading corporate hotels in the four star category.

“Our main market is the business travel segment; we have also exhibited growth in leisure sectors. In addition, our F&B outlets have shown tremendous growth, particularly within the local market,” added Scotto.

Scotto believes that in such a crowded marketplace as Abu Dhabi, the hotel’s strength lies in being independent and unique, hence offering an experience that’s unforgettable, that keeps guests wanting to return.

“In addition to our dedicated service, our location is one of our strongest points; we are conveniently placed within reach of important leisure and business landmarks. We provide our guests with a tranquil retreat that’s further afield from the city while keeping it very accessible.”

For 2013, the hotel plans to focus on maintaining and strengthening their reputation as a leading corporate hotel in the four star category by further targeting business travellers and expanding into the Mice market.

“This year we are also focusing on further promoting and strengthening our existing outlets and leisure facilities. In celebration of our anniversary, and to say thank you to our guests we are running a number of promotions across our leisure facilities, outlets and rates,” he added.

Mafraq Hotel also boasts of some of the best meeting facilities in the city with state-of-the-art business and conferencing facilities. These include six meeting rooms and a ballroom that can hold up to 600 guests.
