Rotana opens unique brand new hotel in KidZania, Dubai

Rotana has announced its latest hotel launch and it is one that offers a slightly different experience compared to properties in its existing collection.

The hotel management company has opened a Rotana hotel in KidZania in Dubai where children and their parents will be able to take part in a range of educational and interactive activities.

KidZania is an education centre in the Dubai Mall that provides children with an insight into professions and occupations through role-playing activities in a safe, unique, and realistic educational environment.

Children aged four-to-16 years will be able to experience specific job roles at the Rotana hotel such as receptionists, guest reservations, restaurant managers and housekeeping staff, through three 20-minute role-playing activities.

The hotel has been designed to look just like a real Rotana property with a dedicated space for a lobby, Zen the Spa, and restaurants.

“Rotana has always invested in developing fresh talent and the new hotel in KidZania will offer a fun platform for kids interested in the hospitality industry,” explained Omer Kaddouri, the President of Rotana Hotels.

“It will give them an opportunity to get a first taste of what it is like to work at a hotel and discover the various roles involved.”

The fun role-playing activities have been designed to introduce youngsters into the hospitality industry and help them become aware of the skills required so they can go on to enjoy a career in the sector in the future.

KidZania provides a unique educational environment for children enabling them to gain first-hand experience of various real world professions and occupations in a fun way,” commented Maitha Al Dossari, the Chief Executive Officer of Emaar Retail.

“The new Rotana hotel at KidZania will be the first establishment dedicated to the fast-growing hospitality sector, and will be a superb new addition for kids keen on acquainting themselves with the diverse professional choices within the industry,”

Rotana operates many hotels in the Middle East including properties in Dubai such as the alcohol-free Al Ghurair Rayhaan by Rotana.

The hotel group was recognised as the World’s Leading Business Hotel Brand by the prestigious World Travel Awards, hailed as the “Oscars of the travel industry”.
