The Mere Golf Resort and Spa acquired by the Dubai real estate giant

A golf club and a hotel in CHESHIRE have a new owner.

The award-winning property developer based in the United Arab Emirates is one of the fastest growing property investors in the world.

The Knutsford Hotel, which offers 81 luxurious rooms and a championship golf course, has been selected as the “perfect addition” to the group’s portfolio.

Rahail Aslam, Founder and CEO of Select Group, said: “We believe Mere Golf Resort and Spa has strong potential to become the best-in-class resort in the North West of England.

“We look forward to achieving this goal by working closely with the hotel team.”

The venue has the capacity to host events for 500 guests and an award-winning spa and health club.

Gary Johnson, General Manager of Mere Golf Resort and Spa, said: “The team and I are delighted with this acquisition as it will ensure that we become the best resort in the area.”

Select Group intends to elevate the hotel to a heightened level of luxury with interior and exterior renovation plans.

The vision is to modernize the rooms, public areas and facilities.

New rooms will be created and public space expanded, continuing to attract international, business and leisure travellers.

Select Group has an impressive hotel portfolio and a proven track record of significant successes.

The Dubai developer already has successful relationships with some of the most important players in the hospitality industry, including IHG, Jumeirah Group, ACCOR, Six Senses, Radisson and Melia.

Select Group has delivered over 7,000 homes and over 20 million square feet of development.

A further 5,000 homes are currently under construction, with a combined gross development value of over AED20 billion.
