Nassar Khalil & Associates

Trusted by 100+ hoteliers globally

Prior to appointing Nassar Khalil and Associates as our Hotel and Leisure consultants , we used the services of a much larger consultancy firm to steer the business through its rapid growth and expansion plans.

The difference between the two firms is abundantly clear from the moment Nassar and his team stepped in. The attention to detail, value and direction the new team brought to the business and operation in a short space of time is remarkable.

After dealing with a number of tight suited traditional hotel consultants, it is fresh and delightful to work with an expert who answers the phone 24/7, a professional who is truly part of the team, a specialist who puts the interest of the client first by providing bespoke industry advice and actual solutions to a variety of daily business challenges, an approach that delivers measurable results not the usual reports and predictable recommendations.

Ursher has successfully expanded it operation overseas, this could not have been easily achieved without the expertise and guidance of Nassar Khalil and Associates. The board and I are extremely pleased with the consistent professional input, advice and support we are getting from NK and Associates.

Ursher Hospitality and Asset Management

NK & Associates have been employed by our boutique hotel on a consultancy basis over the past 18 months with a clear objective to increase our bottom line by cutting costs and increasing direct business.

Nassar is extremely hardworking and honest and always goes above and beyond what is expected of him, always producing exemplary results. Nassar’s knowledge of the hospitality industry is unparalleled and his rounded experience within the sector means that he is highly qualified to advise on everything from hotel construction and corporate contracts to more operational day to day matters. His excellent communication and negotiation skills have resulted in a vast reduction in our outgoing costs as well as yielding more favourable terms for our business.

During his time working for us he has introduced new corporate clients as well as implemented new SEO strategies and methods that have helped increase direct business through our website. Most importantly, Nassar is a great person, and we are very fortunate to have him on board with us.

Employing the services of Nassar Khalil and Associates was a wise and very productive decision for our group. Nassar and his team have proved to be exceptional in all the areas of the business they are involved in within our group.

We conducted a comprehensive research exercise to find a company that will work with us not just as consultants but also as a member of the team and we are honoured and privileged to have appointed Nassar and his team. This has saved us both time and a lot of money as Nassar is very much the answer to our search. His background, knowledge, experience and judgement is admirable and impressive.

He is a one-stop source for a variety of expertise making it unnecessary to employ the services of additional consultants. Nassar has ensured the group’s interest is properly and adequately represented at every turn. From the moment he took ownership of our latest newly built 5* hotel from the contractors, his company has delivered all that we have asked for and expect. He has achieved more than we could have hoped for in all the difficult negotiations he has participated in on our behalf. His company continues to actively guide our business strategy and we look forward to continue using the services of Nassar Khalil and Associates as we expand our property portfolio for many years to come.

Nassar was my key contact at Nadler Hotels between 2005 and 2010.

I would highly recommend Nassar as an excellent business partner for any hotelier or company involved in the hospitality sector.

It was a great pleasure to work with Nassar Khalil .His experience and industry knowledge of the hotel and hospitality industry is instrumental and helpful in recognizing the strengths and weaknesses of a large hotel operation and team. He succeeded where many before him failed.

I was Chief Engineer of Al Safa Royal Suites and have a direct reporting line to Nassar who was my Chief Operating Officer. He was very straightforward, honest and dedicated in all his dealings and had a firm grip of all matters relating to what was an extremely large operation.

His professional techniques and management expertise created a productive and marvellous working atmosphere for the entire staff. He led by example and commanded the respect of the entire team who always happily went the extra mile in their duties because of Nassar. I wish him every success in his future endeavours.

We are extremely glad we chose to work with Nassar and his team and would recommend his services to other hoteliers, hotel developers and hotel operators who are looking for express business gains and quick turn-arounds without the fluff that comes with typical hotel experts. 

Managing Director,
London House Hotels, London, UK

Nassar Khalil came to us by recommendation from a major hotel group. Nassar came into our business and made an immediate difference. His unassuming approach rapidly overcame the barriers of external consultant interference and provided hands-on guidance and coaching to all of our senior Managers whilst also steering the board to developing a more effective strategy for all areas of the business.

The results of his involvement have been immediate and have taken the board by surprise. Our sales are noticeably up, our overheads have dramatically reduced and more surprisingly, our type of clientele has also changed. We have seen a major increase in corporate bookings through a more effective approach to marketing and a shift in our online reputation management. We look forward to an ongoing and fruitful relationship with Nassar as we grow our business.
