Abu Dhabi-based hotel group Rotana is to open a total of eight properties throughout the Middle East this year.
The Rotana brand is set to debut in Bahrain, and Jordan (Amman) in 2012, along with the group’s second hotel in Qatar, two properties in Dubai, and a further two in Abu Dhabi.
The 400-suite Boulevard Arjaan by Rotana is scheduled to open in Jordan’s capital Amman in the first quarter of this year, followed by the 414-room Centro Capital Centre in Abu Dhabi in the second quarter.
In the third quarter of the year the group will open the 428-room Al Ghurair Rayhaan by Rotana and the adjacent 193-apartment Al Ghurair Arjaan by Rotana in Dubai, as well as the 300-room Capital Centre Rotana in Abu Dhabi, and 400-room City Centre Rotana in Doha.
Finally in the fourth quarter Rotana is set to unveil the 128-apartment Majestic Arjaan Hotel by Rotana in Bahrain.
If all seven properties open as scheduled it will bring Rotana’s total portfolio to around 14,000 rooms by the end of 2012.
