Shurooq will develop the hospitality schemes in Khorfakkan, Kalba, Al-Dhaid and Mleiha

Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) has confirmed it will develop four tourism projects in the emirate.

The tourism and hospitality schemes will be developed in the Khorfakkan, Kalba, Al-Dhaid and Mleiha areas of Sharjah.

Shurooq’s executive chairman, Marwan bin Jassim al-Sarkal, said the projects were being launched in response to “a sharp increase in touristic and leisure activities and demand for new experiences in the emirate”.

Plans include a 66-key hotel featuring Sharjah’s first water park along Khorfakkan beach, and another hotel near Kalba Waterfront, a retail project that Shurooq is developing with Abu Dhabi’s Eagle Hills.

Both these properties will be five-star hotels.

Shurooq will also develop a 60-key family retreat within the 14 square-kilometre Seih al-Bardi Kabeer safari park that Sharjah is currently developing in Al-Dhaid. 

The fourth tourism scheme, named Moon Retreat, will be developed at Shurooq’s Mleiha Archaeological and Eco-tourism destination, which is expected to open for guests by the end of this year.
