Abu Dhabi’s Rotana

Abu Dhabi hotelier Rotana has ratified a deal with Dap-Yapi to manage two of its hotels in Turkey, as part of its plans to extend its business geographically, Arabian Business reported.

The hotel operator will manage the Tango Arjaan by Rotana and Burgu Arjaan by Rotana hotels, both in Istanbul.

Burgu Arjaan by Rotana will comprise 222 hotel rooms while the Tango Arjaan by Rotana will comprise 188-rooms.

Rotana, which currently operates 46 hotels, is set to open eight properties across the Middle East this year.

In December, CEO Selim El Zyr said that Rotana is seeking to increase the number of properties under its management to 100 in the next few years.
