As the winds of change swirl around us with the advent of this new year, the renewed sense of anticipation and excitement for the adventures that lie ahead is evident.
Embracing this fresh start, it is only fitting that we turn our attention to the very experiences that infuse zest into our everyday lives. Whether you discover it in the thrill of travel (like I do), the excitement of new escapes, the beauty of art or the warmth of shared moments with loved ones, this platform is your gateway to the myriad adventures awaiting you in the coming year. Rest assured, everything you'll need to inspire the journeys soon to unfold in the year ahead can be found in this edition, from upcoming events to appealing destinations and fashionable finds.
Our latest edition is a treasure trove catering to diverse tastes and interests. Join us on journeys to lands both near and far, as we showcase the season's finest offerings. Explore the enchanting allure of Georgia – one of our newest destinations – immerse yourself in the cultural tapestry of Istanbul and venture behind the scenes in Sindalah – Saudi Arabia's groundbreaking giga-development poised to revolutionise the international yachting scene. Art enthusiasts will love our showcase of immersive digital art spaces in the region, while history buffs can travel back in time by discovering iconic landmarks in the Middle East that were recently inscribed on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
At Rotana, we're gearing up for a power-packed year ahead. Our corporate spotlight in this issue reveals exciting developments within our organisation, including our recent win at the Business Traveller UK Awards for the sixth consecutive year, new appointments within the team and additions to our robust expansion pipeline. Amidst these changes, our commitment to providing exceptional hospitality remains steadfast, with you – our esteemed guest – at the core of our endeavours. It's our unwavering commitment to delivering exceptional hospitality that propels us into this new year. And we can't wait to welcome you!
As I settle into my new role at Rotana, I'd be remiss if I didn't invite you to get to know me better. While diving deeper into this edition, you'll find an exclusive interview with me, where I share insights into my personal and professional vision and aspirations. I believe this dialogue will offer a more intimate connection, allowing you to join me on this adventurous journey we're embarking on together.
Here's to a year brimming with transformative journeys and the allure of new beginnings. As you peruse this edition, may you find inspiration and excitement on every page. We hope you enjoy browsing this issue of Rotana Lifestyle as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
With kind regards,
Chief Operating Officer
