Following the opening of new properties in Bahrain and Jordan so far this year, Middle East hotel operator Rotana Hotels & Resorts has confirmed it will open a further 11 hotels this year, including three in Turkey.
The new properties will add 2,765 rooms to Rotana’s existing 13,359–strong room count across its global property portfolio.
The three hotels in Turkey are Burgu Arjaan by Rotana, Istanbul; Tango Arjaan by Rotana, Istanbul; Dalga Residences by Rotana, Istanbul.
Rotana’s launch into Turkey – one of Europe’s fastest-growing hospitality markets – will see the group open two hotels in July with a total inventory of 319 rooms. Rotana is also set to strengthen its presence in Qatar where the brand will open its second five-star hotel and its first Centro branded hotel in Doha in August 2015. Featuring a combined inventory of 600 rooms, the two openings will make the group the largest hotel operator in this Arabian Gulf State with a portfolio of four hotels.
Omer Kaddouri, president & CEO of Rotana comments: “Rotana has a very robust development pipeline for 2015. By extending the Rotana brand into new markets while also reinforcing our market leadership in the Middle East, we have come closer to realising our ambitious vision of operating 100 hotels by 2020.”
