IFA launches Alabadiyah Hills resort in Lebanon




IFA Hotels & Resorts, a wholly owned subsidiary of Kuwait's International Financial Advisors (IFA) has launched its latest branded freehold resort, Alabadiyah Hills, in Dhour Abadiyah, Lebanon, situated between Bhamdoun and Aley, overlooking Beirut and the Mediterranean.
Lebanon: Saturday, August 13 - 2005

Alabadiyah Hills will consist of 12 private villas, 33 townhouses and 220 luxury apartments, as well as a spa and other facilities.

Alabadiyah Hills resort is the latest addition to IFA's substantial portfolio of international branded resorts, spanning Europe, Middle East and Africa. This is the second development for IFA Hotels & Resorts in the Middle East after the successful launch of its luxury resort in Dubai. IFA is known for its innovative and market leading developments that are set to change the face of resort development across the world.

The resort will be managed by Kempinski, Europe's oldest luxury hotel group, which acquired its first property in 1897.

'Lebanon is emerging as one of the most sought-after tourist destinations in the world, and this development comes as a timely business move to explore this market. The newly created alliance between IFA and Kempinski consolidates IFA's strategy to partner with some of the biggest and most respected names in the hospitality business, to ensure that we bring the highest levels of hospitality standards to the freehold property sector. It is in line with our mission to deliver an outstanding international network of tourism and real estate opportunities to global investors,' said Jassim M. Al-Bahar, Chairman and Managing Director of IFA.

'This project with IFA creates an ideal platform for us to enter the Lebanese market, and will set the standard for future projects in the region. Kempinski is known for exceptionally high standard of quality and service, which is one of the main advantages for investors in this luxury residence who can be guaranteed five-star services all year round,' said Ulrich Eckhardt, Senior Vice President Middle East and Africa, Kempinski.

Alabadiyah Hills will consist of private villas, townhouses, and apartments with two distinctive design styles creating the Village Residence and the Tower Residence. Most of the villas and townhouses will have their own private gardens and swimming pools with spacious layouts serving the needs of the highest individual requirements. The Tower Residence is designed around an inner courtyard on the pinnacle of the resort and the Village Residence is nestled around the gardens and water features.

The above prices reflect the highest quality used in building the apartments as well as the service and facilities provided by Kempinski and the unique location of Alabadiyah Hills.

'We anticipate unprecedented demand for this development, since this is one of the first resorts in Lebanon to provide freehold residences with a luxury all-serviced product in an excellent location. The tourism industry and the Lebanese economy as a whole have maintained steady growth over the years,' added Al-Bahar.

'In addition to all the services and facilities, the branded residence comes with a unique rental administration system managed by Kempinski where investors can rent out their properties on short and long term. This gives the owner the ideal opportunity to make his property available when it is not used, to receive a return on his investment, all under the Kempinski management team,' explained Werner Burger, Vice President, Sales & Marketing IFA Hotels & Resorts.

Jassim Al-Bahar concluded by stating that, 'Alabadiyah Hills is a further commitment to IFA's already substantial resort development projects throughout the world with over US$1 billion investment in Dubai's Palm Jumeirah Island. In addition IFA has major projects in Africa, including the Zimbali Lodge in Zimbali Coastal Resort, South Africa as well as the Zanzibar Beach Hotel and Resort on the historic Tanzanian island. Furthermore IFA is presently studying projects in Mauritius and other Indian Ocean locations, in order to provide its clients and investors with a network of luxury resorts and hotels with the highest of standards and flexibility as well as excellent returns for investors'.

IFA HR unveils 'Kempinski Residences' in Lebanon


IFA Hotels & Resorts (IFA HR) and JV partner Kuwait Real Estate Company announced the launch of Kempinski Residences Alabadiyah Hills, branded serviced apartments, in the freehold Alabadiyah Hills resort in Lebanon.

Talal Jassim Al-Bahar, chairman and managing director, IFA HR said Lebanon was one of the most sought after holiday destinations in the Middle East, popular among tourists from the Gulf and expatriates alike.

'We witnessed great success with our first phase of Alabadiyah Hills which is now nearing completion. Despite the recent unrest in Lebanon, we continued with the construction of the project as we have always had strong faith in the country. We’re looking forward to welcoming guests to the property in the near future,' he observed.

The second phase of the mixed-use complex in the picturesque Dhour Abadiyah village, overlooking Beirut and the Mediterranean, comprises four towers of four floors each, offering penthouses and one, two and three-bedroom apartments for sale, with all the extras of a five-star hotel and optional furniture packages.

The complex will be managed by Europe’s oldest luxury hotel group, Kempinski Hotels, and will also house a number of upscale restaurants and cafes.

Piaras Moriarty, VP sales Middle East, IFA HR said Kempinski Residences Alabadiyah Hills were branded apartments that come along with an optional rental programme.

Targeted at high-net worth individuals living overseas, the arrangement allows this segment of investors to holiday in their own luxurious apartments and gain an income from letting out idle properties when not in use, he added.

Ulrich Eckhardt, president Middle East and Africa for Kempinski Hotels said: “This project with IFA Hotels & Resorts creates an ideal platform for us to enter the Lebanese market, and will set the standard for future projects in the region.'

'Kempinski is known for exceptionally high standards of quality and service, which is one of the main advantages for investors in this luxury residence, who would be sure to receive superior five-star services all year round,' he added.

Alabadiyah Hills comprises 15 private villas, 30 townhouses and 220 luxury apartments with their own swimming pools and gardens. The development also hosts recreational facilities including a members-only health club, gymnasium and tennis court.

Al-Bahar said this was another clear message to the investors that the company intends to maintain its quality integrated resort development, by partnering with Kempinski, and 'where we are delivering on the promise made to further invest and develop in the beautiful country of Lebanon.”-
