India-based hotel operator The Oberoi Group has been steadily increasing its presence in the Middle East.

The group currently operates four hotels in the region — The Oberoi, Sahl Hasheesh in Egypt; The Oberoi, Madina in Saudi Arabia, The Oberoi, Dubai; and The Oberoi Beach Resort, Al Zohra, which opened in Ajman in April last year.

The group also operates two luxury cruises within Egypt — The Oberoi Zahra, Nile Cruiser, and The Oberoi Philae, Nile Cruiser.
While the group has been quiet over the last year, The Oberoi, Marrakech is scheduled to open in 2018, although a confirmed date hasn’t been revealed. The Morocco property will mark the group’s debut in the country.

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.
