  • Elias Saad appointed as F&B Director at Bab Al Qasr Hotel in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

    Bab Al Qasr Hotel & Residences is excited to announce Mr. Elias Saad as newly appointed Food & Beverage Director. With over 20 years' experience in Abu Dhabi's Food & Beverage scene, he is tasked to transform and upscale the whole dining experience.

    In 1999, he was first appointed as Assistant Food & Beverage Manager at Hilton Hotel. Throughout his career he worked with well-acclaimed hotels such as Le Royal Meridien, Emirates Palace, Le Meridien and Fairmont and held roles such as: Director of Special Events, Operations Manager, Food & Beverage and Business Development Manager. As a Food & Beverage and Business Development Manager in Fairmont Bab Al Bahr, Elias implemented new dining concepts, improved processes, won awards and raised a strong F&B culture.

    Although he has a vast hospitality industry experience, Elias is a Millennial or Gen Z by heart, #findaway is his motto and he is well recognised for his PR & Sales skills in the Capital. He is a self-made social influencer and a foodie having over 10.000 online reviews and over 20.000 followers throughout his social media accounts and groups.

    With his passion for exemplary service and strong food and beverage background, Elias will certainly be an asset for Bab Al Qasr Hotel & Residences, channelling his experience to all F&B operations, bringing innovation and raising awareness within his network.

    He is also known for his "can-do" attitude and while asked what his biggest achievement was, Elias, with a smile on his face mentioned, "In 2019 I was part of implementing the initiative to donate leftover food of our Friday mega brunch to feed shelter dogs. We were the first to implement it and we were the ones to receive the "Best Environment Initiative" Award from Abu Dhabi Government recognizing our efforts, whilst competing with big companies in Abu Dhabi."
