Minor Hotels has revealed plans to expand NH Hotel Group’s brands in the Middle East with three NH Collection properties launching in 2023 across Dubai and Doha.

In the final stages of development in Qatar, NH Collection Oasis Doha Hotel will comprise 299 guest rooms and suites with views of the Arabian Sea and city skyline. Facilities will include a large pool with its own cascade feature and bar, a fitness centre, NH Collection Spa, four tennis courts, a rooftop lounge and one of Doha’s largest ballrooms with a 1200 guest capacity. A beach club and restaurant is also scheduled to open later next year.

In the United Arab Emirates, NH Collection Dubai The Palm will launch in February. The 14- storey hotel will feature 227 hotel guest rooms and 306 suites, five dining outlets including a roof top venue and a sports bar, a rooftop pool, NH The Spa, five meeting rooms, a fully-equipped gym and a private beach club.

Adding to the expansion of the brand in the Middle East, the 265-key NH Collection La Suite Hotel Dubai will offer a wide range of accommodation options, including guest rooms, suites and one, two and three-bedroom apartments. Onsite facilities will include: an all-day dining outlet, lobby lounge, meeting spaces, a gym and recreational spaces. Centrally located on Sheikh Zayed Road, the property will be operated by Minor Hotels from Q1 next year and will undergo an extensive renovation before being launched with the NH Collection flag later in 2023.

“We have been committed to expanding NH Hotel Group’s brands outside of their traditional areas of operation and the launch of three NH Collection properties in the Middle East in 2023 demonstrates this commitment,” says Dillip Rajakarier, Group CEO Minor International and Minor Hotels. “This is just the start and we continue to explore opportunities to further grow the footprint of NH Collection, NH and nhow in the Middle East, the Asia Pacific region, Africa and the Indian Ocean, and I’m confident we’ll have more exciting announcements to share soon.”
