Rotana signs for new Dubai and Sarajevo properties


Rotana recently formalised two new hotel management agreements which will expand both its Middle Eastern and European presence.

The hospitality giant will now manage Cayan Tower in Dubai under its the Residences by Rotana brand. Adding to this, the company will operate Bosmal Arjaan by Rotana in Bosnia and Herzegovina, marking its foray into Southeast Europe.

Located in the Dubai Marina district, the Cayan Tower is home to 490 residences and seven retail outlets spanning 73 floors. Representing the ninth tallest residential high-rise building in the world, the property is an architectural masterpiece, featuring unique twisting shape spirals in a smooth curve. This new addition pushes Rotana’s existing portfolio of properties in Dubai to 14.


Meanwhile, standing in the Bosmal City Centre complex in Sarajevo, Bosmal Arjaan by Rotana will be the second tallest residential tower in the Balkans region when it opens at the end of 2018. The hotel will comprise 130 two- and three-bedroom units, a gym, two indoor pools, a sauna, a Turkish bath and multiple treatment rooms.

President and CEO, Rotana, Omer Kaddouri commented on the signings: “Cayan Tower brings Rotana’s total inventory under ‘The Residences by Rotana’ brand to 939 keys and will be a significant addition to our portfolio in Dubai.

“Furthermore, the signing of the agreement to manage the upcoming Bosmal Arjaan by Rotana is a major milestone in Rotana’s journey as this property brings us even closer to Europe. Featuring striking tourism attractions and robust economic and business prospects, South-eastern Europe has been increasingly attracting leisure and corporate travellers. With our first property in Bosnia and Herzegovina, we are strategically positioned to cater to the growing number of short and long-term visitors in the country,” he concluded.
