Hotels and beach resorts across Sharjah have been witnessing a heavy turnout of international tourists and visitors.

High-end luxury hotels and resorts offering top-notch, world-class services are conveniently located along the coast and across the emirate.

HE Khalid Jasim Al Midfa, Director General, Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority said the heavy turnout at beach hotels and resorts in the emirate has exceeded expectations.  According to the SCTDA statistics, guests at these special beach hotel facilities had swelled to more than 180,000 during the first half of this year registering 80% occupancy rates.


Al Midfa said that numerous cultural, artistic, entertainment and shopping festivals hosted by Sharjah, not to mention special promotions offered by major malls and shopping centers since the beginning of the year, have added to the emirate’s attractions in the eyes of visitors.  He drew attention to the fact that hotels in the emirate had been encouraged by the Authority to offer special concessional rates to both visitors and residents.

Sharjah is an ideal beach tourism destination both for the country’s residents and international tourists who head to the Emirate especially during the summer season and prefer to spend their holidays in hotels.
