Reto Wittwer and Ulrich Eckhardt have announced the successful management takeover of the Ajman Hotel, formerly known as Kempinski Hotel Ajman, as of January 1, 2018.
The hotel now carries the Blazon Hotels brand, as part of the newly established hotel management company Smart Hospitality Solutions (SHS).
“We are confident in the continued growth of the UAE hospitality market, which is why we are delighted to be part of the re-birth of the very hotel in Ajman that helped put the Emirate of Ajman on the map back in the 1990s,” said Ulrich Eckhardt, executive vice chairman, Smart Hospitality Solutions.
We are grateful to the hotel’s owners who gave us the opportunity to manage this magnificent property and trusting us to elevate its positioning to the highest level in the region.”
Wittwer and Eckhardt share more than ten decades of combined hotel experience between them. The duo have opened and operated more than 200 hotels across the world with several major hotel brands.
General manager George Ganchev will lead the team at Ajman Hotel – which has 168 guest rooms and 14 suites, 10 restaurants and cafes, as well as extensive wellness and leisure facilities.
