Al Maha Arjaan by Rotana is set to open a new go-to café to tantalise the taste-buds of Abu Dhabi’s residents and visitors alike. Located in the heart of the capital on 5th Street and Hamdan Street, the café, which is situated inside the deluxe hotel apartment complex Al Maha Arjaan by Rotana, will be opened by the hotel’s newly minted F&B Manager, Ahmed Al Masry. Recently appointed, Ahmed Al Masry will be responsible for looking after the operations of the F&B unit and will assume responsibility of its sales, profitability, and performance.
Ahmed has a considerable background in F&B with numerous hotel chains in the region and internationally. He was also a part of the team which oversaw the opening of various Hyatt properties within the GCC. He joined Rotana in August 2013 as Outlet Manager, where he overlooked operations at a sister property in Abu Dhabi.
Sherif Madkour, General Manager of Manager for Al Maha Arjaan by Rotana, commented, “We are happy to welcome Ahmed as our new F&B Manager. His energetic, highly motivated character is the perfect fit for opening this bespoke new café and ensuring a unique dining experience to each of our guests. We are pleased to be able to move forward with our ambitious expansion strategy and Café 302 is a huge milestone marking our success in this area. Ahmed will be the go-to person for the operations of the café. We at Al Maha are looking forward to utilising his skills and experience to transform Café 302 into the ‘place to be’ in Abu Dhabi.”
