Shurooq to start work on several premium leisure projects in key areas of Sharjah emirate

66-key property to be built along Khor Fakkan beach, with other projects in Kalba, Mleiha and Al Dhaid regions

Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) is set to start work on several premium leisure projects in key areas of Khor Fakkan, Kalba, Al Dhaid and Mleiha in the northern emirate, it has been announced.

Speaking during a live interview with Sharjah TV, Marwan bin Jassim Al Sarkal, executive chairman of Shurooq, said that work is set to begin on two five-star hotels being built at scenic locations in Sharjah’s Eastern Region.

The first is a 66-key property that will be located along Khor Fakkan beach and will be home to the city’s first waterpark. The second will be built adjacent to Kalba Waterfront, which is a major retail project being developed in phases by Shurooq and Eagle Hills, a report from WAM added.

“We will also be developing a 60-key experiential family retreat within the 14sqkm Seih Al Bardi Kabeer safari park project in the interiors of Al Dhaid,” stated Al Sarkal during the interview. “This will be Sharjah’s first-of-its-kind hospitality facility set within a sprawling natural and wildlife reserve, which is expected to be home to 50,000 African animal species,” he added.

These strategic undertakings follows Shurooq’s vision of transforming Sharjah as a leading hub of nature-inspired experiences and brings the emirate’s central and eastern region within the folds of its ambitions, he said.

The Moon Retreat is set to be a new feature at Shurooq’s Mleiha Archaeological and Eco-tourism destination, which is expected to welcome guests by the year-end. This will be Shurooq’s second boutique hospitality offering in the Mleiha region, with the first one being Mysk Al Faya Retreat, Al Sarkal concluded.
