Rotana opens new 5-star hotel in Al Ain
Abu Dhabi, February 17, 2014
Rotana, a leading name in luxury hotel management sector, has opened its new 254-room 5-star property in Al Ain under its alcohol-free brand Rayhaan Hotels & Resorts by Rotana.
The Hili Rayhaan by Rotana, the company's second 5-star hotel in Al Ain, has been specially developed to complement the ambience of the UAE’s picturesque garden city, with its design, décor and amenities aimed at promoting the most relaxing of stays, said a statement from Rotana.
Strategically positioned in Hili District, a thriving tourist area and bustling suburb in the north of Al Ain, Hili Rayhaan by Rotana is just 20 minutes’ drive from Al Ain airport, 60 minutes from Dubai and 75 minutes from Abu Dhabi.
“Al Ain has grown rapidly in stature as a tourist and business destination, with the result that there is a burgeoning need for upscale accommodation in the city,” said Greg Allan, Rotana’s area VP for Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.
“The extensive market research we conducted over the past couple of years showed that there is a strong demand for a 5-star facility that is alcohol-free, so we have incorporated this as an integral aspect of our new offering,” he added.
Hili Rayhaan by Rotana is connected to the new Wahat Hili Mall, which was launched in September last year. The premium boutique retail and leisure facility is a one-stop destination for visitors to Al Ain..
“Wahat Hili Mall is one of the reasons why Al Ain is becoming an increasingly popular destination for travellers. We have received fantastic feedback from visitors to the mall since we opened, with many appreciating the presence of big name retailers such as Géant, Fitness first, E-max and My Play Zone for the first time in Al Ain,” remarked Saeed Al Dhaheri, the chairman and CEO of Wahat Hili Mall.
The new hotel offers rooms and suites that are spacious, comfortable and appointed with a high level of superior amenities. These include high-speed internet connections, in-room entertainment with multi-channel satellite televisions, complimentary coffee and tea facilities and IDD telephones with voice mail.
It has a number of dining options. ‘Elements’ is an all-day dining restaurant offering international buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with the ‘Hili Majlis’ lobby lounge an ideal venue for an informal get together over a cup of coffee. Sun lovers will appreciate Sundeck, a pool cafe offering a wide selection of juices, beverages and light snacks by the pool. There is also a 24-hour in-room dining service.
“This fabulous property caters to those who seek a greater level of relaxation and comfort, individuals and families alike,” said Stephan Khn, the general manager of Hili Rayhaan by Rotana.
“It is the hotel’s ability to accommodate both leisure and business guests in consummate style and comfort that makes Hili Rayhaan by Rotana, Al Ain, a first choice destination for visitors to Al Ain,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
