The plans to add these properties to the Ramee portfolio have not been slowed down by the global economic crisis.

“Recession is a part of the game so we have to work on it, cut costs in our operations. We are expecting another two years of low predictions and then after two years I think we will be out of the recession,” Shetty added.

In addition to the properties planned for the Middle East, Ramee Group is also opening five hotels in India which are intended to be operational by the end of 2013.

Ramee Group currently manages and operates 32 properties in the budget segment as hotels, resorts and apartments in the UAE, Bahrain, India and Oman.
