Abu Dhabi’s Jannah Hotels expands global footprint

Jannah Hotels and Resorts, an Abu Dhabi-based hotel operator and developer, is expanding globally and planning to open six hotel apartment buildings under its luxury and mid-scale brands, Jannah and Jannah Place respectively, in Dubai by early 2018, reports Gulf News.

Three memorandums of understanding (MoUs) have already reportedly been signed.

“In Dubai, between institutions — like fund managers, developers and real estate companies — and private investors, we are in discussions on six projects. Dubai today is a very good area to grow in. There is a need for hotel apartments in the market because travellers that are coming here are looking for those,” Nehme Imad Darwiche, CEO of Jannah Hotels, told Gulf News.

Hotel apartments in Dubai are popular with families, Gulf News writes, those especially from the Gulf. The number of guest nights spent in Dubai’s hotel apartments grew by 4.1 per cent in the first half of last year over the same period in 2013, according to the Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing. The length of stay in hotel apartments grew to 5.7 days during that period.
