Emirates Airline and Emirates Holiday, at the weekend, formally introduced the Bvlgari Resorts, 5- star resort, to the Nigerian travel and tourism stakeholders.
This was done during a dinner with some leading travel agencies and business leaders in Lagos.
Opened in December 2017, Bvlgari Resort which is located in Dubai is a destination of choice for visitors seeking the solitude of an island escape, the residential feeling of a private house, yet situated just minutes from the heart of the vibrant city and its cultural attractions.
The Director of Sales, Bvlgari Resorts Dubai, Saeed Shehata, explained that, “Bvlgari is a new luxury brand, and we have chosen to partner with Emirates Airline and Emirates Holidays to encourage Nigerians experience the highest class of hotel luxury. Nigeria is an important market for us. We have very few properties in the world, but we are located in the best destinations in the world.
The Emirates Airline Regional Manager West Africa, Afzal Parambil, pointed out that “Dubai has become one of Nigeria’s top destinations of choice, and Nigeria has also become the number one African market for Dubai. This was achieved with the deep support of Travel agents, media partners and Nigerian travellers as a whole. Destination Dubai always gives you a reason to go back and visit Dubai. There are always many great reasons to visit Dubai. The breathtaking Bvlgari luxury resort now in Dubai is a perfect reason for another trip to Dubai. And of course fly better on Emirates.”
