Leading Middle East and Africa hospitality company Rotana has exclusively revealed to WTM that it will be opening eight new properties across the Emirates and Africa in the next twelve months.
Abu-Dhabi based Rotana has announced that before the end of 2012, the hotel management group will: open Rotana’s first hotel in Bahrain; welcome guests to its hotel in Amman, Jordan – Rotana’s first in the country; launch a first hotel in Salalah, Oman; open its second hotel in Doha, Qatar; and expand its portfolio with four additional hotels in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, UAE.
Commenting on the announcement, Selim El Zyr, President and Chief Executive Officer for Rotana, said; “The last six months has seen the hospitality industry in the UAE registering positive growth. We see that momentum being sustained as general business conditions improve across the board, and we also see that trend being mirrored in the new destinations we have decided to open inaugural properties in – namely Jordan, Oman and Bahrain.
In the last few years, we have pinpointed several existing and new destinations that were ripe for expansion and we are proud to announce the continuation of our aggressive and strategic growth strategy with these imminent openings.”
