Rotana opens two new properties in Dubai

Rotana opened two of its newest properties, Al Ghurair Rayhaan and Al Ghurair Arjaan by Rotana, situated in the heart of Dubai.

Al Ghurair Rayhaan by Rotana is a five-star property with 428 rooms and suites, each furnished with modern amenities. It is the latest addition to Rotana’s Rayhaan portfolio, which has a collection of some properties in leading destinations in the Middle East and Africa.

Meanwhile, Al Ghurair Arjaan by Rotana will offer a residential experience and features 192 apartments.

Key appointments for the properties include Mark McCarthy, a veteran of the hospitality industry with more than 19 years of experience in the business, as GM. He will lead a team of hotel professionals who are expected to play strategic roles in leading Al Ghurair Rayhaan and Al Ghurair Arjaan by Rotana’s bid to capture a large share of business in the Deira district, one of Dubai’s busiest destinations for both business and leisure travellers.

Armin Weller joins McCarthy in the executive management team, taking on the position of F&B director for both properties. Weller will be primarily responsible for overseeing the daily operations of the F&B department, encompassing all outlets, meeting rooms, as well as events and catering operations.
