Chelsea Group opens another hotel

May 22- The Chelsea Group has announced the opening of a new hotel in Dubai bringing its total investment in the hospitality industry to more than Dh600 million. "We have launched our new four-star hotel in Al Barsha behind Mall of the Emirates as the hospitality industry in Dubai is picking up," said Shiraz Kassam, Managing Director and CEO of Chelsea Group, which runs hotels and hotel apartments in Dubai.


The group, he added, is also planning to build another 750-room hotel near Al Maktoum Airport in Jebel Ali. "We have already acquired the land and will invest Dh500 million in the new property. But construction will start as soon as the new airport becomes operational with some passenger movement," Kassam said.


Chelsea has been around in the UAE for about nine years now and has two four-star hotels and two luxury apartments in Dubai. "Our new property is fully equipped to cater to hospitality needs in the fast developing Al Barsha area, which is an emerging business, shopping and residential community," added Kassam.
