Rotana has announced plans to open the five-star Hili Rayhaan by Rotana Hotel in Al Ain in first quarter of 2013, as part of Wahat Hili Project – Al Ain’s modern and unique retail and hospitality complex located in Hili district.
The hotel will be close to the city and Wahat Hili Mall, which is expected to draw in the bulk of visitors to the city.
President, Rotana, Selim El Zyr said: “Wahat Hili Mall will be the one-stop destination for visitors to Al Ain; drawing in people from all over the region to witness the splendour that is characteristic of the city.
“With 250 rooms to cater to tourists, we are proud to partner with the modern-day retail complex that is set to become a ‘must see’ for guests of the city.”
Chairman, Wahat Hili Mall, Saeed Al Dhaheri commented: “Rotana, as a name, has become synonymous with uncompromising world-class standards. This reflects the vision we have for Wahat Hili Mall – ensuring excellence, convenience and perfection in every detail – and we are proud that the leading hotel operator in the region has become integral to that very ambition.”
The hotel will be targeting both leisure and corporate travellers. Rooms will be spread over six floors and will range from standards to suite. It will house six conference rooms and business amenities, as well as a podium pool, sundeck and leisure facilities.
Hili Rayhaan by Rotana will incorporate contemporary and Emirati traditional architecture.
“Hili Rayhaan by Rotana is the first property to open in Al Ain and our fourth in the region under the brand Rayhaan Hotels & Resorts by Rotana, which is an alcohol-free product that reflects our respect for the culture and beliefs of our guests and our dedication to fostering a new Arabia in today’s world,” stated El Zyr.
“The alcohol-free concept is an entirely new proposition in the region and the market, for that matter. With research indicating this category’s huge potential due to its inherent appeal in the Middle East, Rayhaan is set for incredible growth in the upcoming years.”
