IT’S BECOME ONE OF THE REGION’S TOP HOSPITALITY BRANDS AND MUCH-LOVED BY TRAVELLERS FOR ITS QUALITY, SERVICE AND COMFORTING VIBES. ROTANA HAS EVOLVED OVER THE LAST QUARTER CENTURY INTO ONE OF THE BIGGEST HOME-GROWN SUCCESS STORIES IN THE REGION, TAKING ITS PORTFOLIO FROM ONE TO 100.
Rotana, one of the leading hotel management companies in the region with hotels across the Middle East, Africa and Turkey, marks a historic milestone as its completes 25 years of supporting tourism and hospitality growth in the region. One of the largest hospitality employers in the wider Middle East, Rotana supports thousands of direct and indirect jobs throughout the region, with the company’s relentless growth and expansion over the past quarter century having contributed immensely to promoting economic growth, diversification and job creation in countries across the region. Founded in 1992, Rotana started its journey with the opening of Beach Rotana Abu Dhabi the following year – the first in a series of modern, sophisticated hotels launched by the group that would transform the face of the region’s hospitality industry by bringing a level of comfort and elegance superior to what was available at the time.
“It has been quite a journey these past 25 years, and a deeply rewarding one at that,” said Nasser Al Nowais, Chairman of Rotana. “Rotana today is the result of a shared vision and many years of tireless effort and commitment towards that vision. Beyond the pride of having our brand evolve into one of the largest and most reputable hotel operators in the region, what gives us the greatest sense of accomplishment is that we were able to become who we are today by holding firmly to our values, beliefs and the standards that we set for ourselves when we first started our journey all those years ago,” he added. Rotana’s focus on delivering personalised guest experiences allowed the hotels in its steadily expanding portfolio to drive positive word of mouth and gain the trust and loyalty of guests,quickly establishing the brand as a name to reckon with in an industry that was still in its early stages of development. While the brand’s initial expansion and growth strategy had remained focused on its home market of the UAE, Rotana branched out into the wider region in year 2000 with the opening of its first hotel in Beirut, Lebanon.
Today, Rotana has grown to become the leading hotel management company in the region, with 56 operating properties in 21 cities across 13 countries in the Middle East, Africa and Turkey.
