Karim Nahas brings nearly three decades of experience to the role
Abu Dhabi, UAE, February 7, 2018: Rotana Hotel Management Corporation PJSC has announced the appointment of Karim Nahas to the role of General Manager at the soon-to-open Pearl Rotana Abu Dhabi. The new hotel is set to open in the heart of Capital Centre - Abu Dhabi, the city's bustling business district, at the beginning of March 2018.
Nahas brings nearly three decades' of regional experience in the hospitality industry to the role. As General Manager at Pearl Rotana Abu Dhabi, he will oversee the upcoming launch, as well as all management functions, hotel operations and innovative strategy.
Nahas arrives at the Pearl Rotana Abu Dhabi after two successful years as General Manager at Towers Rotana, Dubai. He first joined Rotana in 2009 as General Manager of the 5-star Grand Rotana Resort & Spa Sharm El Sheikh. He rose quickly through the ranks, working extensively across the region - including the launch of the record-breaking Rose Rayhaan by Rotana, then the tallest hotel in the world, and overseeing a number of key properties as General Manager.
“It is a pleasure to join Pearl Rotana Abu Dhabi in the early inception stages as the hotel is being constructed and to work with the dynamic, dedicated team as we head towards our launch,” Nahas says. “Pearl Rotana will be a key addition to the Rotana portfolio in Abu Dhabi and will complement our offering as part of the Capital Centre. As a passionate hotelier, I am committed to providing genuine hospitality at a world-class level, and aim to inspire the team to deliver an unforgettable experience to all of our guests.”
Located just moments away from the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), the new Pearl Rotana Abu Dhabi will be home to 315 luxurious rooms and suites. Diners will be spoiled for choice with five food and beverage outlets to suit every taste, including two unique signature restaurants: Italian cuisine with a twist at Dino's Bistro Italiano, and delicious tapas at the Warehouse Wine & Tapas Bar. The hotel is perfect for both business and leisure, with extensive meeting and conference facilities, as well as a rooftop swimming pool, spa treatment rooms and a Bodylines fitness and wellness club.
Nahas adds: “We are preparing for the launch of Pearl Rotana Abu Dhabi which is set to be one of the most exciting new hotels in the capital. We look forward to introducing our guests to an exciting experience, including our two innovative signature restaurants.”
