Interview with General Manager of St. Regis Abu Dhabi
A hotel that combines business and leisure of unmatched experiences in the city, St. Regis Abu Dhabi is the architectural landmark that continues to deliver excellent quality services in the highest standards. The St Regis Abu Dhabi has just celebrated its 5th year anniversary but the reputation the hotel has built in such a short space of time, is one of the finest in the city and the luxury hotel of choice by many of its guests.
Spearheaded by General Manager Moustafa Sakr, St. Regis Abu Dhabi has revolutionized into a leading world-class destination that features exceptional dining experiences, spectacular views and personalized St. Regis service.
In an interview with Moustafa Sakr, he stated, “The support I have received from the owners has allowed me to drive this luxurious brand into great success. With great leadership, guidance and a strong hard-working team, we managed to execute my visions and strategies to provide guests with the utmost memorable experiences.”
He continued, “When you continue to deliver great service, business will come in naturally. I believe reputation is worth more than many. If we invest in the hotel’s reputation, marketing strategies and staff services, then only can we excel in business.”
Moustafa’s objective is to highlight Corniche as the leading destination of the capital for both local and tourist leisure and business travelers. He also plans on featuring more corporate events at St. Regis Abu Dhabi for the next season and beyond to further encourage business investments all throughout the year.
“We need to look at Abu Dhabi as a corporate destination. We have all the facilities and means, from the hotel transportation, airport services, technologies, and accessibility to the world. I believe aside from tourism, corporate should also be a priority” he added.
With the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition & Conference (ADIPEC) 2018 and other major events such as Formula 1 lined up for the season, the city is expected to witness a boost in tourism.
“The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi has played a major role in the development of the country. They have done a great job in bringing in leisure guest by understanding the vision of the city and the hotels. They are working very closely with Etihad airlines and actioning on a lot of strategies to execute new projects that are in the pipeline. Not to forget, they bring in a lot of international media as well, which is very important in keeping Abu Dhabi updated globally” he concluded.
