Barceló Hotel Group announces the reopening of Occidental Sharjah Grand

Previously known as Sharjah Grand Hotel, Occidental Grand Sharjah has officially announced its reopening.

A property operated by Barceló Hotel Group, Occidental Grand Sharjah is now welcoming guests and visitors, following the hotel’s complete restoration and complemented with the implementation of the highest standards of health and safety as per Barceló´s signature ‘We Care About You’ programme.

Néstor Del Toro Benitez, Director and General Manager at Occidental Grand Sharjah, says, “We’re very excited to be reopening the iconic property and officially returning to the market refreshed and revitalized. Our legendary property opens its doors to those looking for a home away from home and a sanctuary of relaxation within the busy city. After a very difficult year, we are looking forward to welcoming new and loyal guests to the newly revamped space at Occidental Sharjah Grand.”

As part of the revamped strategy for the property, Occidental Sharjah Grand will be rolling out a dedicated “#LivingSharjah” programme. The initiative is aimed to engage with Sharjah’s residents and local authorities to promote the city as a business and leisure destination for local residents and international travelers.

Guests are treated to range of dining options – the all-day dining eatery Meena, offering breakfast, lunch and dinner; La Bamba, which is located right on the beach and serves Mediterranean grills; or La Terrace, a cosy café with panoramic sea views.
