Hilton Appoints General Manager for DoubleTree by Hilton Fujairah City


Vikram Jamwal to lead female strong management team at upscale five-star hotel

Dubai, UAE: Hilton has named Vikram Jamwal as General Manager for its upscale DoubleTree by Hilton Fujairah City property. The Hilton’s true hotelier has worked with the group for over 20 years covering Germany, Poland, Nigeria, South Africa, and the UAE.

Jamwal holds degrees in commerce and hotel management and has become a pre-opening specialist for the group. With experience in front office management, information systems, room reservations, revenue management, sales and business development, his well-rounded career has given him insight into a variety of hotel operations which are vital to the successful management of each property.

He moved to the DoubleTree by Hilton brand with the opening of the DoubleTree by Hilton Sharjah Waterfront Hotel & Residences in 2021, before being named to lead the pre-opening team for Fujairah.

“Fujairah is a gem in the UAE landscape and offers guests such a wonderful proximity to city life and nature adventures. We’re excited to be elevating the city’s accommodation offerings, and I’m proud to be bringing the DoubleTree by Hilton brand to the east coast of the UAE. The team is reflective of the UAE’s cosmopolitan demographics, and I’m pleased that there are so many top female hoteliers involved in realising this vision.”

The upscale five-star 228-room and suite property is having the finishing touches put to it, with no expense being spared to ensure a full-service experience once the doors open. “Guests can be assured of comfort and care when they check-in with us, as well as our famous DoubleTree Cookies,” affirmed Jamwal.
