Therefore, we are extremely happy to offer our guests an elegant new destination with 186 keys. It is the only property in the emirate that boasts of mangrove and sea views from its rooms. To stay ahead of competition we intend to offer innovative products and then position Mangrove well. As a result we expect approximately 45% – 55% occupancy in the very first year of its operation.”
