The St. Regis Abu Dhabi enjoys its most profitable year in terms of revenue, occupancy and profit
This has been a great year for The St. Regis Abu Dhabi –general manager Moustafa Sakr calls it the most profitable year in terms of revenue, occupancy and profit.
The hotel not only achieved high scores in guest satisfaction, but also in employee satisfaction, one of the main reasons for its success, says the general manager.
Sakr attributes the hotel’s success to the destination as well, with Abu Dhabi Department of Culture & Tourism’s efforts in maximising potency. “from the local culinary scene and attracting international celebrity chefs to organising concert and events and introducing distinctive entertainment activities. In addition, Etihad Airlines is increasing its flights to key markets like Russia to allow the emirate to be more attractive and easily accessible by more travellers. The capital city has evolved into a robust and wholesome leisure experience.
“Conferences, exhibitions and official state visits, also drive more corporate travellers in Abu Dhabi. IDEX, the historic visit of the pope, Formula 1 Grand Prix Abu Dhabi, and our valuable corporate partnerships have made a huge impact on our occupancy.
“In addition, we dedicate our service delivery in a more personalised touch, through our butlers and the rare experiences we offer. We have created an exclusive range of culinary offerings to satisfy every palate, and we ensure privacy when enjoying our leisure facilities. For those reasons, we are perceived to be a boutique hotel and the innovators in today’s luxury hospitality. Our commitment is to promise and deliver to all of our guest a genuine exquisite experience and stay.”
The St. Regis Abu Dhabi’s location is key for every leisure or corporate traveller. Only five minutes away from boutiques of Hermes, Cartier, Lanvin and adjacent to the Nation Tower Galleria Mall hosting more than 60 retail shops, a treasure of culinary option and a cinema, the opportunities are countless. One of the biggest highlights to mention, is the proximity to the Emirates Palace, Qasr Al Watan, Etihad Towers, ADNOC, the newly luxury and trendy Al Bateen area, Edition Hotel and Marina Mall, making it easy for guests to entertain their preferences.
