Middle Eastern hotel firm Rotana is set to open 15 new properties over the next 12 months.
The company is adding more hotels in destinations such as Turkey and Bahrain, as well as strengthening its African presence by entering countries such as the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2016 with a property in the capital Kinshasa.
The new properties will add 3,800 rooms to Rotana’s existing portfolio of 13,900 rooms by the end of the third quarter of 2016.
CEO Omer Kaddouri said: “Rotana has a very robust development pipeline for 2016. By extending the Rotana brand into new cities while also reinforcing our market leadership in the Middle East, we have come closer to realising our ambitious vision of operating 100 hotels by 2020.
“In particular, a breakthrough into Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo, is a significant landmark for Rotana as this is a new territory for us in which we will be addressing the needs of a rapidly developing market.”
Most of Rotana’s openings will be in the Middle East including four properties in Saudi Arabia and two in Iraq.
