Leading international serviced residence owner-operator, The Ascott Limited (Ascott) has launched a dedicated Arabic website to meet the demand of its Arabic guests.
“A large percentage of our guests within the GCC are Arabic and we are excited to be able to offer them the convenience of booking online in their preferred language,” said Vincent Miccolis, Ascott’s country general manager, Middle East & Turkey.
The new website www.ascottmea.com, available in both Arabic and English, offers property information and promotions along with an array of areas to explore such as ‘Ascott Social’ with guest blogs, events at the properties, social media feeds and a local’s perspective of ‘City Life’.
To complement the launch, Ascott is running a competition to win weekend getaways to Paris or a range of destinations across the GCC. To enter the competition, guests need to log onto the portal and spot a character called ‘Hammoudi’, Ascott’s world traveller, who is currently residing at Ascott Park Place, Dubai.
In conjunction with entering, guests can make a booking and stay at one of our properties in the GCC and they will go in the draw to win business class flights to get them there.
Customers must book a minimum one-night’s stay at one of The Ascott Limited’s properties within the Middle East to qualify for free flights that are available (within the GCC only).
