Preferred Hotels adds 84 new properties to portfolio

DUBAI, October 1, 2017

Preferred Hotels & Resorts has reported robust global and regional growth thus far in 2017, including the addition of 84 distinctive properties since January 1.

This growth is set amongst a context of enhanced luxury travel activity, with an increase of inbound travel within the Preferred Hotels & Resorts portfolio of 18 per cent into the Middle East and more concentrated growth of 34 per cent into Dubai.
 
Seven new hotels across six markets in the Middle East have joined Preferred Hotels & Resorts over the past year, including two new markets for the brand; The Domain Hotel & Spa, representing the company’s first presence in Bahrain: Vivienda Granada and Vivienda Residence, marking the brand’s debut in Saudi Arabia; Simaisma, a Murwab Resort in Al Khor, Qatar; Dukes Dubai, located on the Palm Jumeirah; Le Bristol Beirut in Lebanon; and The Bodrum by Paramount Hotels & Resorts in Turkey. The brand’s current total portfolio in the Middle East consists of 23 hotels.
 
Saurabh Rai, executive vice president of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, said: “We are making great strides in the region’s dynamic hospitality market, and are committed to growing our brand presence to even more destinations across the Middle East, while consolidating business to our existing member hotels. Expansion of our portfolio is executed in a deliberate, cognizant fashion, with a goal to provide full destination solutions to our consumer and travel trade partners, ensuring they can access the Preferred Hotels & Resorts experience across key leisure and business cities and at multiple price points.”  
 
To support these development goals, Preferred Hotels & Resorts has endorsed its presence in the Middle East by relocating its regional headquarters to Dubai as of January 2016 and expanding its team to add even more value and provide better service to its member hotels and loyal customers across the region.
 
Currently offering 650 distinctive hotels, resorts, residences, and unique hotel groups across 85 countries, Preferred Hotels & Resorts is renowned as a world-leader when it comes to offering bucket-list-worthy independent travel experiences around the world. Some of the most noteworthy international hotels to join the brand’s portfolio over the past year include:

A holiday like no other.
