Hideaways Club focusing on GCC

June 17 - The Hideaways Club, an international property investment fund, on Wednesday said that it is launching a new project for the GCC.

Launched in 2007 by Mike Balfour, who was earlier the chairman of the world’s largest health club operation Fitness First, The Hideaways Club is now the largest club of its kind in Europe with more than 150 members and 27 solely-owned multi-million dollar luxury properties throughout Europe, Africa, Mauritius and South East Asia.

The company hopes to now target all those in the Gulf who want to invest while looking for access to luxury properties. "I’ve had a long relationship with the UAE and have always believed that The Hideaways Club would appeal to the unique demographics here. There are many expats and nationals looking for sound investments that offer that something extra. We are very excited by the initial response we have had in the region and we see the Middle East as one of the fastest growing and most exciting destinations in which to launch the Club,” said Balfour.

This new project will allow members to choose from more than 45 properties in which they will be able to holiday throughout the year. The Hideaways Club concept consists of a fund and a private members club.
