Former Hotelier Of The Year Shiraz Boghani

     When he arrived in London from his childhood home in Kenya, Shiraz Boghani held a dream of training to be a chartered accountant handling the funds of other people to find success. The dreams of the young Shiraz Boghani in 1969 have been surpassed with ease by the reality of this well-known hotelier and care home owner; the success of Mr. Boghani has seen his business empire expand to include 19 hotels managed through his Splendid Hospitality Group and 18 care homes and rehabilitation facilities operating under the Sussex Healthcare brand.

The Splendid Hospitality Group has become one of the leaders in the hotel industry of the U.K. through the innovative nature of the work completed to build a reputable and luxurious chain of hotels. After working in the financial industry, Shiraz Boghani decided to invest in the healthcare industry and made the decision to invest in a new company, Sussex Healthcare for which he remains co-Chair and founding partner of the company.

Despite the success he has achieved as a leading member of the healthcare industry, Shiraz Boghani is best-known as the leader of the Splendid Hospitality Group which now operates 19 hotels across some of the most impressive locations in the U.K. The Splendid Hospitality Group made its first mark in the 1990s when it began to build a chain of hotels with limited services which would become the largest part of the industry by the turn of the 21st-century. Under the leadership of Shiraz Boghani, the Splendid Hospitality Group has grown in success to become one of the leading luxury hotel groups in the nation with investments including London’s $121 million Hilton London Bankside. Over the course of recent years the success using branded hotels the Splendid Hospitality Group has looked beyond the confines of the English capital to establish hotels in popular regional locations such as Leeds and Bristol.
