As part of an ongoing global expansion, IFA Hotels & Resorts is opening an office in London which will lead its European operations.Talal Jassim Al-Bahar, Chairman and Managing Director of IFA HR, said, “Many of our current customers reside in the UK and a number of our future projects will be designed to match the international UK investor’s needs. The office will also lead and manage our existing European projects and investments and will explore future investment opportunities.”

The opening of our European office is another step towards providing superior service to the global market place. Being at the centre of this market ensures superior investment opportunities for our clients worldwide” Al-Bahar added.
