Those properties will expand Swiss-Belhotel International's Middle East portfolio to six as they join the Swiss-Belhotel Plaza in Kuwait and Qatar's Swiss-Belhotel Doha. 

Swiss-Belhotel International Chairman and President, Mr Gavin M. Faull, said he was thrilled by the possibilities being explored throughout the Middle East and by the options being offered by the properties to both business and leisure travelers. 

"As business in the Middle East continues to expand so too do the facilities and services offered by Swiss-Belhotel International," said Mr Faull. "As a global hotel management company with a full roster of brands from two- to five-star we are committed to sustainable growth that benefits our valued quests and our business partners."
