Opening in 2024, the property features 31 apartments, each designed to maximise space, light and efficiency, and featuring smart technology and in-room entertainment. 

Rotana president and CEO Guy Hutchinson said: “This is a fantastic milestone for Rotana, and we're delighted to be partnering with CNM Estates to bring our award-winning hospitality services to the United Kingdom. London remains one of the world’s largest business hubs and a key market for us as we continue expanding our footprint globally. 

"Launching in two vibrant locations in London, both properties will welcome guests to enjoy the diverse offerings of the city while having unique living spaces that provide both finesse and functionality. We look forward to continuing building our success story, in line with our mission to deliver 'Treasured Times' to our guests across the world.”  


Rotana currently operates 72 hotels in the Middle East, Africa, Eastern Europe and Turkey, serving more than six million guests per year, including more than 10,000 keys across 36 hotels in the UAE alone. 

With a robust developing pipeline, the hospitality group is on track to expedite landmark developments and hotel signings in the region and beyond.
