In a bid to enhance its presence in the region, R Hotels announced the acquisition of its fifth property in the UAE. The property is located on 2nd of December Street (formerly Al Diyafah Street) and Al Mina Road in Jumeirah and is set to open in the second quarter of 2015.
The 192-key hotel looks to attract both corporate and leisure travellers and will feature a combination of rooms and suites. The other facilities on offer include an all-day dining restaurant, banquet facilities, gym and swimming pool, concept spa and salon, meeting rooms, business centre, and retail space.
Sumair Tariq, managing director of R Hotels said: “The UAE continues to witness a strong and steady growth in the hospitality and tourism sectors. We aim to capitalise on these developments by expanding our portfolio in key locations.”
Last year, R Hotels announced its AED1.5 billion investment plans, seeking to enhance its existing hotel portfolio in the next couple of years. Tariq further added: “R Hotels is on track of its development and expansion plans. There is a robust competition in the market and we see this as an opportunity for growth.”
R Hotels currently owns and manages four properties in the UAE namely Ramada Hotel and Suites Ajman, Ramada Beach Hotel Ajman, Ramada Downtown Dubai, and Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham in Jumeirah Beach Residence.
