Rotana has shed light on the soft opening of two new hotels located at Dubai Creek: the five-star Al Bandar Rotana and its new, fully-furnished serviced apartment option, Al Bandar Arjaan by Rotana.
Guests can look forward to elegantly designed properties with modern luxuries, in a prime waterside location on Baniyas Road. Ideal for business and leisure travellers alike, the hotels are within arm’s reach of major attractions and landmarks, including Dubai International Airport and Dubai World Trade Centre. Adding to this, Al Bandar Rotana and Al Bandar Arjaan by Rotana are home to state-of-the-art meeting and conference facilities as well as dining lounges.
Area vice president, Rotana, David Prince commented: “Dubai has been one of the best-performing markets for Rotana, where we have a strong presence with an existing inventory of 11 hotels and several under development, which will give us an additional 3,168 rooms in the city. With its forward-looking economy and continued infrastructure investments, combined with its appealing luxury, retail and tourism offerings, the emirate continues to be a magnet for both business and leisure travellers.”
He continued: “The emirate has seen a steady growth in the number of visitors, and in 2017 alone it welcomed 15.8 million travellers. 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.”
Leading the new properties as general manager will be Hussein Hachem, who will make use of his 35+ years of hospitality experience. A Rotana veteran, Hachem is one of the group’s most experienced and awarded general managers.
Hachem declared: “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, including Dubai Festival City, Dubai Museum, Gold Souk, Al Seef and Rise at Dubai Creek Harbour, the hotels make a natural choice for travellers exploring the city and the ideal place for business travellers looking for convenience and five-star facilities in the heart of the city.
“Our team has put in time and effort to ensure the properties meet Rotana’s benchmarks and carry on its legacy by introducing unique design and technology-driven accommodation solutions for an unmatched guest experience,” he concluded.
