Abu Dhabi: Mirfa Hotel enjoys 235 per cent increase in profits
Mirfa Hotel saw a record 235 per cent increase in actual gross operations profit above budgeted figures for 2005, with the occupancy rate alone showing a gain of 7.8 per cent.
Part of the Danat Hotels & Resorts collection, the four-star property set on Abu Dhabi’s west coast has experienced a rise in business over the past year and according to general manager, Ali Salih, this year is set to yield similar results.
Salih said: “Abu Dhabi’s impressive growth in the hospitality industry will undoubtedly gain momentum in the coming year. Leisure and business tourism boosted Mirfa’s total actual revenue by 14 per cent in 2005 while the average room rate increased by 16 per cent. We fully expect 2006 to continue along these lines.”
Abu Dhabi diversified its offering by providing four and five-star accommodation in the growing tourism infrastructure. Mirfa Hotel continues to attract a large number of businesses and holidaymakers who prefer good rooms, meeting space and dining options without the hefty price tag of properties in Dubai.
The 50-room hotel is located 160 kilometres from the capital, offering a full range of complimentary leisure and recreation facilities for overnight guests. Access to the golf and putting greens, as well as two floodlit tennis courts, a volleyball court and fitness facilities are all included during their stay. A swimming pool, along with a climate-controlled child’s pool and play area, round up the activities for the whole family.
Mirfa Hotel is managed by Danat Hotels & Resorts, a division of the National Corporation of Tourism & Hotels based in Abu Dhabi.
