Raffles Hotels & Resorts shares global expansion plans

With newly appointed CEO Stephen Alden at the helm, Raffles Hotels & Resorts is on track to more than double its portfolio. 

Later this year, Raffles will open a second hotel in Dubai (The Palm), along with Bahrain, Udaipur and Macau. Next year and beyond, the brand will debut flagship locations in London (2022), Boston (2022), Doha (2022), Jeddah (2022) and Moscow (2023).

The brand will also make its debut in North America and the United Kingdom next year.

Next year will see two watershed moments for the brand—with Raffles making its debut in North America and the United Kingdom. In North America, Raffles Boston Back Bay Hotel & Residences will comprise a hotel and residences. In the United Kingdom, Raffles London at The Owo and the Owo Residences by Raffles will be located within the Grade II-listed Old War Office building originally completed in 1906.
