SoftBank-backed Oyo Hotels has launched Capital O hotels in the UAE.
The first Capital O 187 Action Hotel is located in Ras Al Khaimah and the other property — Capital O 167 Moon Valley Hotel Apartment — is in Bur Dubai.
With this launch, the group is on track to “achieving its target of offering 12,000 rooms in 150 hotels in all the emirates by 2020”.
The hotel brand targets both business and leisure travellers.
Commenting on the development, Manu Midha, regional head, Middle East, Oyo Hotels & Homes, said, “Since Oyo’s launch in UAE last year, several business travellers have shared their feedback on hotels that cater to their needs. Capital O, therefore, was launched keeping their requirements in mind and we plan to rapidly expand this segment of our portfolio by the last quarter of 2019”.
According to Manu, the product price range for these hotels are between AED 200 ($54.45) to AED 300 ($81.68) range inclusive of all the amenities that are integral for corporates.
Speaking about their association with the group, Christophe Landais, CEO Action Hotels said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Oyo. With the help of OYO’s expertise in innovation and proprietary technology solutions, operational excellence and extensive distribution system, we look forward to delivering an exceptional service experience to our guests.’’
