Ras Al Khaimah-based Al Hamra will operate a new Rove Hotel linked to the largest retail and leisure destination in the emirate.

The real estate developer signed a management agreement with Emaar Hospitality Group to operate the new Rove Hotel at its Manar Mall in Ras Al Khaimah.

Al Hamra, which has just completed the first phase of a $100m expansion and upgrade of the mall, will begin construction work on the hotel later this year.

The 250-room property is scheduled to be operational in 2020.

Benoy Kurien of Al Hamra said: “Manar Mall is the leading hub for social, retail and leisure activity in Ras Al Khaimah, and a major draw for the growing number of tourists to the emirate.

“Adding Rove Manar Mall, to our existing offering, will attract an even broader range of visitors, particularly young families, shopaholics, Gen Y and ‘staycationers’. Essentially, it will offer an all-round hospitality, retail and entertainment experience that focuses on fun and value-for-money.”

The hotel will feature free high-speed Wi-Fi, 24-hour boutique convenience store, outdoor pool, sundecks to relax, a 24-hour gym, and a 24-hour self-service laundromat.

The rooms will also include luggage store rooms, safety deposit boxes, sofa beds for extra guests, mini-fridge and more.

Olivier Harnisch, chief executive officer of Emaar Hospitality Group, said: “We are thankful to the Ras Al Khaimah government and Al Hamra for their trust in us in contributing to the emirate’s hospitality sector. The young Rovers of Ras Al Khaimah will have a destination that truly meets their aspirations in Rove Manar Mall.

Al Hamra has a current portfolio of four luxury hotels and resorts, including the recently opened The Ritz Carlton, the iconic hospitality brands such as Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah, Hilton Al Hamra Beach & Golf Resort, The Al Hamra Residence and Village.
