SARAJEVO (Bosnia and Herzegovina), September 10, 2019

Rotana, a leading hotel management company in the region with properties across the Middle East, Africa, Eastern Europe, and Turkey, has announced the official opening of Bosmal Arjaan by Rotana, its first hotel in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as part of its global expansion strategy.
Strategically located within Sarajevo’s Bosmal City Centre complex, the new property offers 132 fully serviced one-, two- and three-bedroom deluxe hotel apartments, a stylish restaurant, two meeting rooms, and a state-of-the-art fitness and wellness club featuring a gymnasium, a sauna, a Turkish bath, and multiple treatment rooms. 
Each of the spacious accommodations includes a fully equipped kitchen, modern amenities and the latest in-room technologies, complemented by Rotana’s exceptional hospitality and service standard, said the statement from Rotana.
As Bosnia and Herzegovina’s first-ever branded hotel apartments, the Bosmal Arjaan by Rotana introduces a new concept to the country. 
The hotel offers the most spacious rooms in Sarajevo and is located within the nation’s tallest residential tower, it stated. 
Owned by Al Thani Companies Group, it boasts a prime location close to the city centre and its largest shopping mall and is just a short drive from major attractions including the Old Town and the famous Vrelo Bosne Park at the foothills of Mount Igman. 
Ideally suited for both business and leisure guests, Bosmal Arjaan by Rotana is designed for modern travellers who appreciate contemporary living, said the company.
On the new property, Rotana’s Acting CEO Guy Hutchinson said: "The opening of Bosmal Arjaan by Rotana supports the diversification of hotel products in Sarajevo by bringing a new type of accommodation to this wonderful city."
"Rotana is proud to contribute to the growth of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s flourishing tourism sector. We are pleased to play a part in the development journey of this dynamic market through our policy of hiring, training and developing the local talents to deliver an outstanding guest experience with our signature personal touch," he stated.
Al Thani Companies Group CFO Assaad Assaad said: "Rotana’s reputation for quality hotel management made the company the natural choice to help us introduce this exciting new concept to Bosnia and Herzegovina."
"We look forward to working closely together to provide a home-from-home experience for our guests that will help to further elevate the city’s position as a prominent destination among travellers," he added.
Renowned as one of the region’s fastest-growing business centres, Sarajevo is also establishing a reputation as a touristic hotspot. The city attracted more than half a million visitors during 2018, representing an 18.8% increase year-on-year.
