Rotana, one of the region's leading names in luxury hotel management, has opened its second five-star hotel in Al Ain - Hili Rayhaan by Rotana. The new 254-room property has been specially developed to complement the ambience of the UAE's picturesque Garden City, with its design, decor and amenities aimed at promoting the most relaxing of stays.


Strategically positioned in Hili District, a thriving tourist area and bustling suburb in the north of Al Ain, Hili Rayhaan by Rotana is located close to the heritage and archaeological sites of Al Ain city and is expected to be a first-choice for guests wanting to combine modernity with tradition.

"Al Ain has grown rapidly in stature as a tourist and business destination, with the result that there is a burgeoning need for upscale accommodation in the city," said Greg Allan, Rotana's area vice-president for Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.

"The extensive market research we conducted over the past couple of years showed that there is a strong demand for a five-star facility that is alcohol-free, so we have incorporated this as an integral aspect of our new offering," he added.

Hili Rayhaan by Rotana is connected to the new Wahat Hili Mall, which was launched in September last year.

The premium boutique retail and leisure facility is a one-stop destination for visitors to Al Ain, uniting discerning shoppers with leading brands. The mall rises three stories high and encompasses 160 outlets, combining all the elements expected for a modern-day shopping experience.

Hili Rayhaan by Rotana offers rooms and suites that are spacious, comfortable and appointed with a high level of superior amenities. These include high-speed internet connections, in-room entertainment with multi-channel satellite televisions, complimentary coffee and tea facilities and IDD telephones with voice mail.

"This fabulous property caters to those who seek a greater level of relaxation and comfort, individuals and families alike," said Stephan Kohn, general manager of Hili Rayhaan by Rotana. "It is the hotel's ability to accommodate both leisure and business guests in consummate style and comfort that makes Hili Rayhaan by Rotana, Al Ain, a first-choice destination for visitors to Al Ain.
