Abu Dhabi hotel in Mafraq given funds for major renovation works

In an effort to improve the Mafraq Hotel, The National Investor are embarking on their first initiative in the hospitality sector, and have invested US$50 Million to Marfaq to make major renovations to the hotel. The aim is to make the Marfaq a speciality hotel for those taking Abu Dhabi holidays.

The National Investor (TNI) is an Abu Dhabi based investment management and advisory firm, and are placing massive investment to drastically improve the facilities and capabilities of the Mafraq Hotel. The hotel guest capacity will be increased from 121 rooms to 250 rooms, as well as opening five new food and beverage outlets.

The hotels design has a nice minimalist feel to it, with subtle colouring across the hotel. The aim is clearly to provide a warm, quality modern building and the renovation work is a key part of the rebranding project undertaken by TNI for the hotel.

When discussing the recent investment, TNI president of real estate, Rob Rowell, pointed to the great potential the hotel possesses and spoke that the massive investment will certainly heighten the Mafraq Hotel brand name. Rowell stated “we decided to continue to leverage the Mafraq name to highlight the uniqueness of the property and strengthen its own independent brand.”

And with such a massive investment taking place, Rowell stated that the improvements will guarantee that the hotel becomes an “important and real niche”, with TNI aiming for the hotel to be one of the top Abu Dhabi hotels.

The National Investor acquired the Mafraq Hotel in 2007, and Rowell revealed that TNI were strongly considering allowing specialists to manage the hotel operations, however after a lot of thought they decided to ensure it had its own unique brand, managed by TNI.

The hotel will also be managed directly by TNI, with Rowell confident of TNI abilities. Rowell stated that TNI has acquired its knowledge of the industry from a number of places, and pointed at other organisations combined with local knowledge of providing holidays in Abu Dhabi as being sufficient for TNI to directly operate the hotel. Rowell stated that “third party specialists from the hospitality industry have allowed us to utilise a wealth of local and international knowledge, the results of which speak for themselves”.

The Mafraq Hotel is located in the centre of Mafraq, and is ideally placed to escape the noise and intensity of Abu Dhabi City. The secluded area offers visitors a different experience of Abu Dhabi, and TNI are hoping to capitalise on the location and the major works done for the hotel.
