Oetker Collection to Expand in the Middle East


Last week, we reported that European hotel brand The Oetker Collection would open Le Bristol Abu Dhabi next year, the first Le Bristol property outside of Paris.

Now, Hotelier Middle East is reporting that the Collection is looking to expand further, with Dubai, Doha, Muscat and Cairo earmarked as potential locations for luxury development.

The company recently opened The Palais Namaskar in Marrakech, a 41-suite hotel that has 16 swimming pools and its own private jet to transfer guests from Casablanca Airport to the city.
