Hotel group opens Majestic Arjaan by Rotana, its first property in the Gulf kingdom
Rotana, the UAE-based hotel management company, has announced the opening of its first property in Bahrain.
The opening of the Majestic Arjaan by Rotana is the company's 11th property under the Arjaan Hotel Apartments by Rotana brand.
Majestic Arjaan by Rotana offers 128 suites, ranging from studios to three bedrooms developed as duplexes, Rotana said in a statement.
Omer Kaddouri, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Rotana, said: "This opening of Majestic Arjaan by Rotana represents an important achievement for Rotana, and a major milestone in our strategy to expand further in the Middle East and African region.
"This is our first property in Bahrain, a fascinating city with an attractive liberal lifestyle, a rich history and culture, with a strong demand for luxury hotels that offer world-class hospitality."
The hotel features leisure facilities that include an outdoor temperature controlled swimming pool, a fitness centre, with steam and sauna rooms and meeting rooms.
Majestic Arjaan by Rotana also boasts three food and beverage venues.
Last week, Rotana announced its first foray into Turkey.
The hotel operator has launched the Tango Arjaan by Rotana and Burgu Arjaan by Rotana in Istanbul, which will increase its portfolio by a total of 410 rooms.
