History

We can trace our roots back over 60 years.

The many businesses that have joined Compass Group since then have contributed to our rich heritage and shaped the personality of our business today. Whilst we have come a long way from these humble beginnings to become the international business we are now, the commitment of our people to our customers, the quality of our service and our spirit of innovation remain a constant and ongoing feature of our development.

ADNH Compass is a 2001 Joint Venture (JV) established between Abu Dhabi National Hotels, (est. 1978) one of the longest established local hospitality and tourism companies in the United Arab Emirates and Middle East and Compass Group PLC (est. 1941) with the foundation of ‘Factory Canteens Ltd’ in England.

Responsible for managing business across the Middle East, we currently oversee responsibility for the UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

A pioneer on numerous hospitality avenues, Abu Dhabi National Hotels (ADNH) has evolved into an integrated hospitality group that encompasses hotels, restaurants, destination management services, catering and transportation.

Under its Hotels Division, ADNH owns some of the most reputable and recognizable hotels in the Emirate and beyond including: The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal; Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas; Sheraton Abu Dhabi Hotel & Resort; Le Meridien Abu Dhabi; Hilton Abu Dhabi; Hilton Al Ain; and the Sofitel Dubai Jumeirah Beach.

This joint venture offers distinct advantages to your business in the Middle East.

For a start, it means we can give you outstanding value for money and economies of scale. It also means we can bring you innovative best practice solutions and successful brands, concepts and systems that have been globally tested to the highest standards.
