Message of Moussa El Hayek, Chief Operating Officer, Al Bustan Centre & Residence Dear Readers, These are very challenging and exciting times for Al Bustan Centre & Residence. Last year saw a lot of change and retrospection for us. It gave way to a new beginning, bold initiatives and investments, a year of great success, coupled with enhanced efficiency and effectiveness. Our property’s continuing success and sustainability also depends on doing business in an ethical way, providing our guests maximum comfort and improve the quality of life of the community in which we operate. All these initiatives and efforts resulted in encouraging revenue growth last year and we forecast another tremendous year. Thus I’m happy to announce that the property is showing a healthy growth trend. At Al Bustan we exert continued efforts to achieve optimum service efficiencies to keep up the good work done which has been translated into repeat customers. Thus I take this opportunity to thank all our guests, tour operators and partners in the region for showing confidence in our services and patronising our efforts. This year the property is investing in construction of a new lobby, complete renovation of rooms and furniture, introduced a new website and online booking engines, and will start the very popular Hummer H3 promotion. Starting from mid-April to end of May, the promotion will run for 45 days when one lucky winner walks away with this mega prize. Many other new offers and promotions have also been lined-up for the year. Once again we will be taking part in Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS) as co-sponsors and

have organised a number of activities at the centre. With all these innovative strategies we are poised to reach our long-term goals. Our new initiatives, investments, cross-sectoral partnerships and industry linkages are aimed at sustaining our growth. All these reflect our commitment and willingness to assess our performance against the most stringent standards. We are also one of the organisations which are committed to spending a percentage of our profits on community-related programmes and employee welfare. At the end I would like to thank all our employees and partners in the region for their commitment and their contribution to the success of Al Bustan Centre & Residence. I am confident that the property is well positioned to maintain sustainable development which is reflected in our 10 years of success and prosperity.

Moussa El Hayek Chief Operating Officer
