“We are pleased to have been awarded the Wafi Hotel and Shaza Hotel contracts as they give us new footholds at both home and abroad,” said Samir Badro, chairman and CEO of GLI, in a statement.
“Shaza Hotel will strengthen our GCC presence by bringing our expertise to Riyadh, while Wafi Hotel will allow us to continue to support the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, by contributing to Dubai’s thriving hospitality sector. Our proven expertise in craftsmanship and high quality fit-out services has earned us a substantial and growing portfolio of hotel projects, and we are delighted to be adding to this.”
