R Hotels recently announced a frame work for a franchise agreement with Accor Hotel Services Middle East.
This agreement will focus on the upcoming ibis Styles hotel in Jumeirah. The property is expected to open in the second half of 2015. The 191-key hotel will target both leisure and business travellers and will be located in Al Mina Road in Jumeirah.
The property will feature a combination of rooms and suites, an all-day dining restaurant, banquet facilities, gym and swimming pool, concept spa, meeting rooms, business centre, and retail space.
Sumair Tariq, managing director, R Hotels, said: “We are positive that this partnership will bear results for both parties. R Hotels is looking to expand our portfolio in key locations while offering suitable products to the right market.”
ibis Styles Jumeirah will be R Hotels’ fifth property in the UAE. The group currently owns and manages Ramada Hotel and Suites Ajman, Ramada Beach Hotel Ajman, Ramada Downtown Dubai, and Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham in Jumeirah Beach Residence.
