Jebel Ali International Hotels (JAIH), a UAE-based hotelier that opened its 1st resort in Dubai in Jebel Ali in 1981, has signed its two 1st overseas hotel management contracts in the Seychelles.

The contracts with Trinity Estates and Trinity Waterfront are related to 2 properties – Round Island and The Waterfront. Round Island is planned to open in the 3rd quarter of 2008 just a 15 minute boat ride from Victoria, to offer 10 individual deluxe private chalets with a plunge pool, small private beach and spa, and the Waterfront will be opened in early 2010 on Mahé just 5 minutes outside Victoria to offer 40 deluxe rooms and suites with private beach, marina and spa.

David Thomson, the company’s general manager for corporate affairs, said that the signing of the contracts is the beginning of company’s operations outside the UAE and that JAIH is confident that this will be the 1st of many hotels to be managed overseas. According to Thomson, the company is currently discussing 2 more management contracts outside the UAE, however, the location is not revealed yet.
