Sorry but this is incorrect. First, it is a 100 m (=meters!) lagoon, not a $100 million (dollars) lagoon. If Al Wasl could drop $100 million on a glorified pool, they'd be positioning this property...

Great report!

By the way, the GM is Ahmed Khalaf, though I agree that HM Marie is absolutely delightful.

I agree with you, Mike, on almost all your points in this thread, though I have to say I wish Rosewood would have been the answer to all our (hospitality) prayers, but for me at least, this is not...

Totally agree with you and to be honest, I am not a really huge fan of Alessandro Cresta.

The best Concierge in all of Paris is probably Adrian Moore at MO, closely followed by his (former)...

PH Paris has a huge problem in my view, because they are generally seen as a great hotel for redemption, but not such a great choice for paying cash. Yes they are comping the influencers and getting...

And I expect this to be much more simplified, possibly even Dubai style. The development could be part of a special economic zone, which then requires less formalities to enter. MBS has been quite...

One could probably write a book about this topic. Usually management contracts are long-term contracts, not rare to see 20-30 years. Relatively difficult to get out, there are a few ways, for example...

Park Hyatt Dubai is a well kept Dubai secret, though certainly suffers from cost cutting. I hope current management is a bit better in this regard.

Wonderful trip report, Kila is looking fantastic -- they certainly take good care of her! New infinity pool suites are a sensible addition and possibly most requested in the future.

Mentality perhaps. Though saying this, FS First Residence serves as an incubator for the GCC region and so many talents were discovered there, now thriving at other FS worldwide. Truly special!
