Following the signing of a management agreement with Al Hamra, Rove Hotels has shed light on plans for the brand-new Rove Manar Mall in Ras Al Khaimah.
Construction work on the 250-key hotel, which will cater to the needs of both business and leisure travellers, is scheduled to begin this year. The property is expected to open its doors for business in 2020.
Al Hamra’s Benoy Kurien commented on the development: “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. With Rove Manar Mall, we are offering visitors, tourists and residents a distinctive hospitality experience that focuses on value, excellent service and connectivity. The new hotel will further add to the burgeoning tourism and hospitality sector in Ras Al Khaimah and boost the local economy.”
Meanwhile, corporate director of operations, Rove Hotels, Paul Bridger added: “Rove Manar Mall marks the continued expansion of the Rove brand in the UAE, having successfully opened five hotels in Dubai and announced another Rove hotel in Ras Al Khaimah – Rove Marjan Island. The hotel will serve the fast-growing mid-market segment, especially with the current hotel development portfolio focused largely on premium hotel developments. With tourism to Ras Al Khaimah growing at 19 per cent in 2017, this is a great time to expand our offering to this fascinating emirate, rich in natural diversity and scenic attractions.”
All rooms at Rove Manar Mall will cater to the needs of leisure and business guests, while family travellers will be able to opt for interconnected rooms.
Facilities will include a 24-hour boutique convenience store, outdoor pool, sundeck, a 24-hour gym, 24-hour self-service laundromat, luggage store rooms, F&B options and much more.
