Rotana has showcased its new collection of hotels at World Travel Market (WTM) London 2019, making an entry to the Eastern European market.
One of the key points of interest for delegates is Rotana’s entry to the Eastern European market with the opening of the Bosmal Arjaan by Rotana in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Located in Sarajevo’s Bosmal City Centre complex, the new hotel features 132 suites, in addition to a gymnasium, a sauna, and multiple treatment rooms. The hotel, which opened in September, is the second tallest residential tower in the Balkans region.
Underlining its strong focus on expansion in Africa, Rotana is going to open its first hotel in the East of the continent this month. Located in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, Johari Rotana is situated in close proximity to the Zanzibar Ferry and just 30 minutes from Julius Nyerere International Airport. Johari Rotana features 193 luxurious rooms and suites, 60 serviced apartments and a choice of five dining venues.
Rotana’s CEO Guy Hutchinson said: “This year, we are proud to showcase our recent expansions into two new geographies that further strengthen our global presence in Eastern Europe and East Africa. These important milestones marked fresh chapters in our ongoing success story.
“As we look to the future with confidence, we will continue to build on the solid foundations we have created and explore new opportunities to enhance the guest experience.”
The company is also highlighting twelve upcoming Rotana hotels that are scheduled to open before the end of 2020, which will take its total number of operational hotels to 80. The pipeline encompasses new properties in Saudi Arabia, UAE, Jordan, and Iraq.
