Millennium Corniche Abu Dhabi sights 2015 as a booming touristic market within the UAE

Millennium Corniche Abu Dhabi Hotel said it was buoyed by strong business this year as it has achieved an average 76 per cent occupancy rate since the beginning of 2014.

“We expect this strong performance to continue into the first half of 2015 due to early bookings from Europe, mainly Britain and Germany,” the hotel’s Director of Sales and Marketing George Tahhan said , adding the GCC is also a key market for Millennium.

He also expected a surge in the number of tourists from the Arab countries to Abu Dhabi given the emirate’s attractive places, including cultural and sport sites such as Ferrari, Yas Waterworld, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and Sheikh Zayed Museum where the Hotel provide a free shuttle bus to most of the attraction areas as well as Shopping malls.

The hotel also includes Free tickets within their packages during Eid periods and special occasions to their guests, as part of their promotional campaign.

“We have succeeded in marketing the hotel and achieve all targets we have set…we believe that next year results will be
even better thanks to our marketing policies and the support of the tourism sector by the Abu Dhabi tourism and culture authority.”

He said a Chinese festival hosted by Abu Dhabi this year contributed to putting the emirate high on the global tourism map, adding that Abu Dhabi has a lot to offer the foreign tourists and visitors.

“We are targetting even better performance next year through our distinguished facilities and services despite the strong competition in the market.”

He said changing the name of the hotel to “Millennium Corniche Abu Dhabi” was intended give it a “more distinct aspect” and was part of overall development.

The hotel is keen to take part in all relevant local and global events as well as promotional tours organized by ADCTA, noting that the hotel will attend the Berlin Tourism Bourse in March 2015. “We really recognize and appreciate ADCTA and Etihad Airways for their role in promoting Abu Dhabi as a key tourism destination,” he added.
