In his career, Shiraz Boghani began to focus on the hospitality industry and the Splendid Hospitality Group in the 1990s when he pioneered the use of limited service hotels in the city centers of the U.K. The establishment of these limited services hotels helped create a base for the growth of the Splendid Hospitality Group which would lead to the development of a new area of business including some of the most high-profile hotels in the country. At the time of winning the Hotelier of the Year award in 2016, the Splendid Hospitality Group operated 19 hotels in locations across the nation under the leadership and business plan of Shiraz Boghani.

Winning the Hotelier of the Year Award showed the level of respect Shiraz Boghani has developed in the hospitality industry and the Asian community as a whole who he represents with a leadership role with the National Council of the Ismaili community in Great Britain. As the success he has achieved has continued to grow so has the ability of the Kenyan-born business leader grown within the philanthropic community of the U.K. largely because of his work with the Aga Khan Foundation to bring greater levels of education to children and adults across the planet.
