With the kingdom leading the world in hotel supply growth, according to a 2021 report by hotel data company STR, Dana Rayhaan by Rotana will help contribute to Vision 2030 as Saudi Arabia aspires to attract 100 million visitors annually by 2030, making the kingdom among the top five countries that receive the most tourists worldwide. This means that a significant increase in the number of hotel rooms is required. We look forward to introducing our signature hospitality and outstanding accommodation to guests in the Eastern Province, whether they are travelling for business or leisure.”
