Leva Hotels and Resorts revealed that Jordan and Iraq were among the Middle Eastern markets that the group would explore as part of its expansion plans for 2019 and beyond. 

The hotel group’s chief executive officer and founder, JS Anand, said the brand had a “strong potential” for growth and was gaining momentum following the opening of the Leva Mazaya Centre property in Dubai in February 2019.

Leva is also eyeing growth opportunities in Africa, Asia, and Europe.

“We are scouting for opportunities in high-demand and under-penetrated cities in the GCC, as well as other parts of the Middle East,” said Anand.

Leva Hotels & Resorts was launched earlier this year in a partnership with oil and gas businessman Ahmed Bin Khalaf Al Otaiba, who is chairman of Trizac Holding Group.
