Commenting on the new alliance, GHA CEO Chris Hartley said: “GHA and JA Resorts & Hotels both call Dubai home, so the GHA team have all got personal experience of the groups  fabulous hotels and resorts, whether it’s for a night out on JBR at the heart of Dubai’s vibrant beach-front scene, or a weekend at the incredible JA Hatta Fort Hotel in the Hajar mountains just outside the city.“

“They have a great reputation and a long history in this region, and bring more local flavour to GHA’s eclectic collection of truly independent brands; and thus more great choices for our 11-million DISCOVERY programme members,” he added.
