Prithvi Raj Singh (PRS) Oberoi is the son of the Oberoi hotel group’s original founder, Rai Bahadur Mohan Singh Oberoi. The Indian-born luxury hotel group is very much a family business, with PRS Oberoi’s son, Vikram, the next in line to inherit leadership of the group.
In the Middle East, the Oberoi Group has a growing presence, with four operational hotels – one property in Dubai and another in Ajman in the UAE; one in Madinah, Saudi Arabia; and a hotel in Egypt, along with two luxury cruise boats.
The brand has already debuted in Ajman with the opening of luxury beachfront property, The Oberoi Beach Resort, Al Zorah. Set in a protected forest, it boasts a championship golf course, indoor and al fresco restaurants, and villas featuring private, temperature-controlled pools. The property opened in April 2017, having originally been slated to open in December 2016.
