UAE-based hotel management company Rotana has confirmed the soft opening of its newest five-star property in Dammam, Saudi Arabia.

The new hotel is the company’s first property in the city under the Rayhaan by Rotana brand. It is located in the heart of the city and offers the views of the Arabian Gulf and Al-Ashriah Roundabout.

Dana Rayhaan by Rotana has a total of 285 guestrooms and suites. 

Guests looking for customised amenities and services can avail the special stay at the hotel’s Club Rotana, a ‘hotel-within-a-hotel’ concept offered by Rotana.

Located on the hotel’s 16th floor, Club Rotana has separate suites, rooms and an exclusive lounge.

Besides, the hotel has an all-day dining restaurant serving international cuisine, Rodeo Grill steakhouse, with an outdoor terrace.

Other dining options in the hotel include Dana Lobby Lounge, Sundeck Pool Lounge on the terrace, overlooking the outdoor swimming pool, along with a 24-hour in-room dining service.

Dana Rayhaan by Rotana general manager Christian Rainalter said: “With the Kingdom leading the world in hotel supply growth, according to a 2021 report by hotel data company ‘STR’, Dana Rayhaan by Rotana will help contribute to Vision-2030 as Saudi Arabia aspires to attract 100 million visitors annually by 2030, making the Kingdom among top five countries that receive most tourists worldwide.”

Rainalter added: “This means that a significant increase in number of hotel rooms is required.”

“We look forward to introducing our signature hospitality and outstanding accommodation to guests in Eastern Province, whether they are traveling for business or leisure.”

Last month, Rotana confirmed opening its first property, Azure Rotana Resort & Spa, in Alegria.
