Bena Properties, the real estate development and investment arm of Cham Holding, has appointed DEPA to carry out the fit-out of the five-star Yasmeen Rotana Hotel.

The $19.8 million contract covers the fit-out of all the hotel’s rooms, including the executive suites, ambassador suites and the royal suite. DEPA’s scope of work will also cover public areas, including the main lobby, executive lounge, restaurants, meeting rooms, banquet hall and health club. Moreover, the contractor will be responsible for supplying all soft furnishings for the hotel.

“We have commissioned DEPA in line with our strategy to deliver a high-end product at Yasmeen Rotana. Starting the fit-out works constitutes an important step in the completion process of the hotel which is set to be one of the main hospitality destinations catering for a growing demand in the country,” said Hawazen Esber, CEO of Bena Properties.

The hotel is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2012 and will occupy a 4,000m² plot, with a total built up area of 53,750m².
Yasmeen Rotana is situated on the Damascus-Beirut highway, 15 minutes from the centre of the city and 35 minutes from Damascus International Airport. The hotel features 338 keys, three executive floors and three food and beverage outlets.

"We are pleased to be assigned with the execution of the fit-out and furnishing works for Bena Properties at their first hospitality project in Syria. Our extensive network allows us to utilize the knowledge, organizational ability, purchasing power, facilities, and economies of scale in order to meet the specific needs and unique challenges at Yasmeen Rotana,” said Mohannad Sweid, CEO of DEPA.
