Rotana announced 10 new properties at ATM with new hotels in the UAE, Iran, Tanzania and Sudan to open by 2020, with five new projects in Dubai.
Cementing its position as the largest hotel operator in the UAE, Rotana has signed five new hotels in Dubai, which will increase the company’s total number of properties in the emirate to 20.
Rotana also announced its plans to enter the Iranian market with four properties, all of which will be opened under the company’s alcohol-free brand "Rayhaan Hotels & Resorts" by Rotana. The new hotel signed in Sudan will mark the arrival of the second Rotana property in the Sudanese capital, following the Al Salam Rotana property in Khartoum. The hotel is set to open its doors by 2019 with 221 rooms.
"The opening of these new hotels in these four markets falls in line with our strategic goal to operate 100 hotels by 2020. These are in addition to the properties announced earlier which will open in Turkey, Erbil, Jordan and Qatar," says Omer Kaddouri, president and CEO of Rotana.
