Royal Tulip Hotels Look to Expand in Middle East, North Africa

Hotelier Middle East is reporting that Golden Tulip, part of Europe's Louvre Hotels Group, is looking to expand its five-star Royal Tulip hotel brand in the Middle East and North Africa.

The group is targeting 10 Royal Tulip openings in the region within the next three to four years, Golden Tulip MENA president Amine Moukarzel told the website.

There are currently no operating Royal Tulip hotels in the area. Previous plans to open a Royal Tulip in Madinah, Saudi Arabia, fell through and a signed Royal Tulip hotel in Bahrain was put on hold following the Arab Spring.

However, the Royal Tulip Amman in Jordan (pictured) has been signed and is on track to open in October 2013, with further openings set to follow.
