Rotana Hotels expand aggressively with 12 new properties
November 26, 2014: Rotana, a leading hotel management company in the Middle East, Africa, South Asia and Eastern Europe, will add 3,360 rooms to its existing 12,607–room count across the region, with a development pipeline headlined by 12 new properties, some of which will open before the year end.
President and CEO, Omer Kaddouri, shared Rotana’s international expansion plans, spotlighting the company’s growing presence in countries like Jordan, Turkey and Bahrain. The new properties will also create a substantial number of employment opportunities and Rotana plans to hire more than 10,500 individuals across the next five years to operate the hotels.
Kaddouri comments, “The extension of the Rotana brand into new markets such as Turkey and Jordan represents a key milestone and important achievement for the group. With a carefully considered international development strategy in place, we are constantly looking for high growth opportunities and both these markets offered exciting prospects for us to extend our award-winning hospitality offering.”
