Leisure constitutes about 65 per cent of guests at The Ajman Palace Hotel with bulk of the overseas tourists coming from Russia and Baltic States, Germany and the UK, followed by the GCC, India, China, etc. The hotel has also got a great mix of domestic market both in terms of leisure and corporate.
Ferghal Purcell, General Manager of The Ajman Palace Hotel, stated, “As a destination, Ajman is growing in popularity among European travellers given its unique tourism appeal with a peaceful and quiet location overlooking the Arabian Gulf in close proximity to Dubai. Ajman combines both an ancient heritage with a rich history and culture as well as a modern appeal that is emerging owing to the massive development taking shape in the emirate. Hence international travel shows such as ITB Berlin provide us the perfect platform to generate greater awareness about our destination and property.”
