Armed Forces Officers Club & Hotel (AFOCH)

Case Study

Opened in 1997, The Armed Forces Officers Club and Hotel (AFOCH) in Abu Dhabi is a mixed-use recreational complex for the officers of the UAE armed forces and their families. Accommodation consists of 600 elegantly appointed guest rooms and suites.

The complex also offers extensive Meeting, Conference & Banqueting and Wedding facilities, eight restaurants and lounges serving diverse cuisines, and one of the largest catering services in Abu Dhabi.
