IHG Hotels and Resorts has signed a management agreement with Sharjah Asset Management (SAM), the investment arm of the Sharjah government, to bring a voco hotel to Sharjah in the UAE.

The property which is scheduled to open in 2027 is the first IHG hotel announced for Sharjah.

The 191-key property will be located near the Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club on the Al Dhaid-Masafi Road. As part of a masterplan encompassing retail spaces, offices, and SAM’s headquarters, the mixed-use development is expected to attract leisure tourists and corporate guests too.

Haitham Mattar, managing director, IHG Hotels and Resorts for India, Middle East and Africa, said, “We are delighted to collaborate with Sharjah Asset Management and bring our premium brand, voco, to the city. This milestone is significant as we are committed to expanding our presence in key regional markets, including the UAE. The new voco Sharjah is a perfect fit for the market and is set to redefine hotel stays in the emirate. We look forward to welcoming our domestic and international guests when we open the doors to this hotel in 2027.”
