Basma Group, ARADA partner with Minor Hotels


Basma Group and ARADA have inked a management agreement with Minor Hotels to launch the Anantara Sharjah Resort. Scheduled to open in mid-2020, the Anantara Sharjah Resort will offer 233-keys across a range of accommodation options including Deluxe Rooms and Luxury Suites.

Facilities will include multiple dining options with a specialty restaurant, a male and female spa and wellness centre, a kids’ club, a swimming pool and a ballroom able to accommodate up to 540 guests for a banquet.

The Emirate recorded a 17% rise in tourist numbers in 2016, compared to 2016, according to statistics released in April by the Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority (SCTDA).

The Anantara Sharjah Resort is co-owned by Basma Group and ARADA, with the latter playing a developer management role in the delivery of the property.

Minor Hotels currently operates 13 properties in the Middle East across four of its brands – Anantara, AVANI, Tivoli and Oaks – and has a further strong pipeline in the region across these four brands. In total, the company currently operates 39 properties in 12 countries around the world.
