VENTURES AFRICA – International hotel group, Golden Tulip, has disclosed plans to expand its luxury five-star hotel brand, Royal Tulip into the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
According to its MENA president, Amine E Moukarzel, the hospitality company has no branch in the MENA region and will be launching into the regions with 10 Royal Tulip branches within the next three to four years.
Previous moves to open in the regions were hampered by the Arab spring uprising, corporate indifferences amongst others.
Distinct features of the Royal Tulip brand are characteristics of the Arabian lifestyle – spacious rooms, rich food options and beverage facilities. “We’re investing in luxury,” Moukarzel quipped.
Golden Tulip currently operates 44 hotels in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Nigeria, Ghana, Oman, Bahrain, Lebanon and Tunisia under its three-star Tulip Inn and four-star Golden Tulip brands.
