Welcome to the second month of our blog which is alive and kicking. Most of you have signed up and it is great to have a dynamic and popular platform for our group. More news to come and to be shared and in the meantime, I would like to thank you all for your efforts and dedication. The next couple of months will be on the low side in terms of occupancy and we are taking this opportunity to do the refreshment, upgrade, and maintenance of our facilities. It is also the time of the year to catch up with the holidays accumulated during the high season I would like to wish you a great time together with your loved ones and your family.

Mohamed Nadheem, Airport Representative
Face of the House Winner , March  2018

Nadheem was on a day off when he was requested to assist a guest to the hospital.  With no hesitation he undertook this task. His genuine sincerity and undivided attention was recognized by John, our guest who was admitted at the hospital. Not only did he demonstrate great empathy but his professionalism and great attitude made the unfavorable situation for John a smooth experience. From ensuring to provide John’s meals to assisting with all the medication and consulting with doctors, even spending overnight at the hospital, Nadeem went above and beyond demonstrating a character of what genuine hospitality is.
