Philippe Harb has climbed three spots this year, having added two new hotels to One to One’s portfolio. In October 2017, Al Daar Hotel in Sharjah was reflagged by One to One Hotels. This was followed by the reflagging of a Ras Al Khaimah property, now called One to One Mughal Suites.
One to One hinted at adding two more Ras Al Khaimah poroperties to its portfolio in 2018, but no further details were made available. The Abu Dhabi-headquartered operator also has plans to expand its operations in Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Morocco, and Thailand.
Speaking to Hotelier about his journey at One to One, Harb previously said: “I took over a home-grown brand that started with just two hotels and was about to shut down, and now it has expanded to 27 hotels in operation and seven in the pipeline within just four years. We moved the company from a national presence to an international one, and soon from ownership to corporate.”
