Rotana opens two hotels in Dubai Creek
The hotel operator, which will launch 14 properties across the MEA region this year, says the latest facilities will “redefine Dubai Creek living”
Hotel operator Rotana announced it had completed the soft launch of two properties on the Dubai Creek.
One of these properties is the five-star Al Bandar Rotana hotel, while the other is a serviced apartments facility, named Al Bandar Arjaan by Rotana.
Both buildings comprise business meeting rooms, conference facilities, dining areas and other guest amenities, as well as a view of Burj Khalifa.
Rotana’s statement announcing the hotels’ soft launch did not mention their construction timelines or costs, but the operator promised that both buildings would transform residential living in the Dubai Creek area.
Commenting on the hotels’ launch, David Prince, area vice president of Rotana, said: “With the opening of Al Bandar Rotana and Al Bandar Arjaan by Rotana, we have reached a new milestone in our growth journey and the properties, situated in a prime location in Dubai, have further cemented our leading position in the hospitality industry.”
Hussein Hachem, general manager of the two hotels, said their close proximity to tourist attractions such as Dubai Festival City and Dubai Museum would help to boost Dubai Creek as a residential area.
He added: “Al Bandar Rotana and Al Bandar Arjaan by Rotana are set to redefine Dubai Creek living, where the emirate started off its magnificent journey.
“With their closeness to major heritage and tourist attractions, the hotels make a natural choice for [tourists] exploring the city, and also the ideal place for business travellers looking for convenience and five-star facilities in the heart of the city.”
The opening of Al Bandar Rotana and Al Bandar Arjaan by Rotana follows the operator’s announcement of launching 14 new hotels across the Middle East and Africa region by the end of 2018.
Rotana has also planned to open three hotels in Saudi Arabia, two in Turkey, and one each in Iraq and Tanzania by the end of the year.
