With its sights firmly set on a global network of AHS properties the latest announcement is the signing of group’s first European property, U Istanbul in Turkey.
“As CEO even I have been surprised by the growth and success of AHS in these few short years. I put this down to two overriding factors; the complete an utter dedication of my valued team in sharing the same mission and vision as myself and the knowledge that when you book at either a U or Eastin property you’re guaranteed the same levels of outstanding amenities, facilities and guest service no matter your destination, with the unique brand characteristics that sets us apart from our competitors.” said Mr. Wigley.
