Rotana Hotel Group has picked up six awards at the International Hotel Awards – Arabia 2011 including the Centro Barsha Dubai, which was designed by LW Design Group.
The awards include; Amwaj Rotana Jumeira Beach Residence Dubai – Best Hotel; Park Rotana Abu Dhabi – Best New Hotel Construction & Design; Al Bustan Rotana Dubai – Best Convention Hotel; Fujairah Rotana Resort & Spa Al Aqah Beach – Best Resort Hotel and Beach Rotana Hotel Abu Dhabi – Best Spa Hotel.
The hotel opened in June last year and LW Design Group designed an interiors to suit a ‘new generation of hotel guest, carrying stylish luggage and striding purposefully to the check-in desk’.
“This new type of traveller expects the elegance and finesse of a five star hotel, but not the fat bill at the end of their stay,” a spokesman said.
“In short, they want quality and a bit of a bargain. Enter Centro. We took the personality of a chic boutique hotel, injected it with the fun and charm of a welcoming family home and topped it off with a cutting-edge urban design, all within the margins of a three star property.”
The brainchild of Rotana Hotel Group, the Centro three star hotel chain is part of a roll-out scheme that will see properties open in Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Oman and Syria, with the first hotel already open in Yas Island.
