Shiraz Boghani And His Team Live Up To Splendid Service
Shiraz Boghani is the renowned hospitality expert who hails from Kenya. He spent his formative years there, and then relocated to the UK to pursue his career. He earned his higher education degree from the London School of Economics. Thereafter, he attained his chartership as an accountant. He has more than 30 years of experience in the institutional housing industry.
In 1998, he founded the Sussex Healthcare Group and currently serves as its joint chairman. The company provides full-service housing for the functionally challenged. Some of its clients suffer from congenital neurological disorders, while others acquired mental, physical and/or emotional damage due to traumatic accidents and/or aging. Through Sussex Healthcare Group, Shiraz Boghani and his team aim to allow each client the opportunity to live with as much autonomy as possible. Within the framework of their clients’ apparent limitations, his various Sussex Healthcare housing facilities deliver full-scale, customized support.
In 2007, Shiraz Boghani founded hotel businesses. Today, he functions as the Executive Chairman of Splendid Hospitality Group. This business venture is presently comprised of 20 hotels offering a thousand times as many bedrooms. It is considered among the fastest developing hotel conglomerates in the UK. His company is the recipient of the ‘2018 Leading European Hotel’ honor by the 25th Annual World Travel Awards. In 2016, he was also awarded the distinction of ‘Hotelier of the Year’ by Asian Business Awards.
From his focus on the well-being of his Sussex Healthcare clients, he recognized that all markets of clientele may also present unique, niche needs. Shiraz Boghani realized that the daily stay needs of someone seeking an extended booking for work in the area may vary greatly from the daily accommodations expected of a couple on a romantic excursion for a week. Likewise, should an area present enough demand for a particular type of daily stay needs, it becomes financially wise to cater to that market for that area. He finds this especially true with respect to the hotel industry because it is quick and simple to flip venue focus from one habitation and hospitality niche to another. Shiraz Boghani was the first hotelier to introduce this type of limited service approach in London in the 1990s. His admirable wisdom also led him to found and add the luxurious Splendid Restaurants experience to his choice establishments.
