We support the leadership by offering diversity and top quality in hospitality and tourism across a range of choices for visitors and guests to include self-catering, 5-star, 4-star and budget hotel rooms.

"We have two new hotels opening soon in Dubai South to add to our portfolio and with a new e-commerce drive within our travel & tourism division, we expect to see rapid growth in this sector.
