Hotel venture expands to Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia, February 7, 2018

Rove Hotels, a joint venture of Meraas and Emaar Properties, has announced its expansion to Saudi Arabia with Rove King Abdullah Economic City, located centrally in the Bay La Sun waterfront district of King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC) in the vicinity of the Prince Mohammad Bin Salman College of Business & Entrepreneurship (MBSC) and a newly established entrepreneurship hub.

Marking the debut of Rove Hotels in Saudi Arabia, Rove King Abdullah Economic City is the first hotel under the contemporary midscale lifestyle hotel brand outside the UAE. It will feature 240 rooms, fitness centres for ladies and gentlemen, and a wide range of lifestyle amenities that underpin the brand values of Rove Hotels to deliver reliable, modern and super-efficient hospitality services that appeal to all. The construction work is anticipated to start in the second quarter of 2018 with the soft opening scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2019.

Designed for the highly mobile and socially connected generation of travellers and entrepreneurs, Rove Hotels offers value-driven lifestyle choices and uplifting experiences. It has four operational hotels and four upcoming properties in Dubai.

The operational hotels - Rove Downtown, Rove City Centre, Rove Healthcare City and Rove Trade Centre - are popular among Saudi visitors to Dubai for their convenient location and easy access to the city’s attractions.

Like all Rove Hotels, Rove King Abdullah Economic City also takes its contemporary design cues from its surroundings. All rooms will have 48-inch interactive TV screens with smart media hubs and free Wi-Fi. Comfortable mattresses, sofa beds for extra guests, mini-fridges, safety lockers and modern bathrooms with power rain showers are standard for all rooms. Several rooms will be interconnected, ensuring the hotel is suitable for groups and families with children.

Other amenities include a 24-hour gym, food & beverage outlets, lobby areas, outdoor pool and deck, kids pool, parking spaces, spacious meeting rooms, 24-hour self-service laundromat, convenience store, luggage store rooms and safety deposit boxes. Guests have the convenience of a late check-out time of 2pm and a range of smart services including Wi-Fi connectivity.

“KAEC is fast establishing a reputation as the domestic destination of choice for leisure visitors and business events & conferences. Our expanding range of entertainment & leisure offerings are having a tremendous impact on the city’s appeal and ability to deliver a standout experience for visitors,” said Ramzi Solh, CEO, Real Estate Operation and Management Company.
