Rotana nears Al Ain finish line

Rotana has announced the near completion of the Al Ain Rotana Hotel expansion project, which will be finished in April 2008. Al Ain is situated close to the Abu Dhabi/Oman border and is the fourth largest city in the United Arab Emirates.

The impressive expansion project adds 72 luxurious rooms, 12 suites and two new chalets to the existing five-star hotel. The new recreation facilities include two squash courts and a state of the art Bodylines health & fitness centre.


Since its opening in 1999, the Al Ain Rotana Hotel has been popular with business travellers and holidaymakers. The expansion is designed to accommodate that mix of guests, with state of the art in-room facilities, that meet visitors’ needs precisely. 



“Every room features online connectivity, communications and internet, complemented by exclusive guest amenities. We understand our guest mix and took their needs in to consideration early in the planning,” Says Ayman Gharib, General Manager of Al Ain Rotana Hotel.


The hotel is ideal for MICE organisers as the property offers a choice of ballrooms and meeting rooms. Facilities include intricate lighting, high-end acoustics and the latest audio-visual equipment.


The Al Ain Rotana Hotel prides itself on its exceptional conference services and can host an incomparable event, be it a large gala dinner reception or a top-level executive meeting. The hotel also has the capability to undertake outside catering, serving from 30 to 10,000 guests.


Al Ain is known as The Garden City of the Gulf. The city’s history dates back to the 4th millennium BC and is now a green and fertile destination with tree lined boulevards, gardens and parks. Its attractions include historical museums, several restored forts, the Hili archaeological site dating back to the Bronze Age, the Al Ain Oasis, a zoo, an amusement park and a heritage village. Sheikh Zayed’s vision and commitment has seen Al Ain grow into a modern city and one of the greenest in Arabia today.


From the moment guests step into the Al Ain Rotana Hotel, they will be captivated by the warmth of traditional Arabic hospitality and the splendour of modern luxuries that can only be found at a Rotana property.


The Al Ain Rotana Hotel offers a host of leisure, sport and health facilities including Bodylines leisure and fitness club, a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, two squash courts and massage rooms. Bodylines offers a fully equipped gymnasium, aerobics classes, squash courts, steam room and the temperature-controlled outdoor swimming pool is a great place to unwind.


The combination of its award-winning restaurants, state-of-the-art business facilities, stylish and luxurious guest rooms together with an ultra-modern gym and leisure facilities has lead the Al Ain Rotana Hotel to be regarded as one of the finest hotels in the region.
