ROTANA Hotels Resorts, who are at ILTM this month, are set to open four new properties across the Middle East and North Africa in early 2007.
Set to open in early January is the Rotana’s first property in Kuwait, the 200-room Al Manshar Rotana Hotel, part of the Al Manshar shopping and entertainment complex.
Around the same time, the group’s BurJuman Rotana Suites, Dubai, will welcome guests to its fully serviced, trendy one-bedroom suites, duplex townhouses and a penthouse. Guests will have access to eight fully-equipped meeting rooms suitable for conferences and seminars, underground private parking for 200 cars, 24-hour room service, a state-of-the-art gym and swimming pool and BurJuman’s more than 300 stores.
At the end of January, the Fujairah Rotana Resort and Spa opens its doors. Sheltered between the Hajar Mountains and the Indian Ocean with fertile tropical landscape, the property is a colonial-style resort of 250 rooms and chalets that blend local architecture with a graceful palazzo-style estate, replete with every amenity from a fully stocked mini bar to a personal in-room safe and high speed internet.
In February, the focus of the group’s expansion moves to Khartoum, where the Al Salam Rotana opens with 250 well-appointed rooms and suites, a restaurant and café, a ballroom, business centre, health club and more.
