Oyo opens 'Capital O' hotel for business travellers in UAE

Launched in October 2018 in the UAE, Oyo has welcomed over 225,000 guests across 105 hotels and homes and 1,800 rooms in five emirates

Oyo Hotels & Homes, the world's fastest-growing chain of leased and franchised hotels, homes & living spaces, has announced the launch of its premium brand - Capital O - for business travellers in the UAE.

The first two Capital O Hotels are located in Ras Al Khaimah (Capital O 187 Action Hotel) and Bur Dubai ( Capital O 167 Moon Valley Hotel Apartment). With this launch, OYO has further expanded its growing presence in the UAE and is on track to achieve its target of offering 12,000 rooms in 150 hotels in all the seven Emirates by 2020.

Capital O is the ideal choice for new-age corporate travellers, as it offers the perfect amenities for business and leisure stays. These premium hotels are located in prime locations and specially curated to deliver OYO’s quality-assured experience at an affordable price.

Capital O hotels are equipped with high-speed wi-fi, 24x7 food and beverages with in-room services, buffet-style breakfast and premium amenities, including Oyo branded toiletries.

Oyo has received an overwhelming response to the Capital O offering in India and currently it has 700 hotels in 200+ cities across the country as part of its growing portfolio. With this launch, discerning travellers to the UAE can enjoy the same premium and elegant hospitality experience in Capital O hotels.

Commenting on the development, Manu Midha, regional head, Middle East, Oyo Hotels & Homes, said, “Today, Oyo Hotels and Homes has become synonymous with high-quality, trusted and affordable hospitality experience the world over. We are committed to offering a superior stay and travel experience to millions of guests in the UAE as it a great business destination and sees a large inflow of trade visitors throughout the year. This is further supported by the trade events that cater to various industries. Since Oyo’s launch in the UAE last year, several business travellers have shared their feedback and thoughts with us 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."

Action Hotels is the leading owner, developer and asset manager of branded three and four-star hotels in the Middle East and Australia. "We are delighted to be partnering with Oyo on the launch of Capital O hotels across the region and become an integral member of the new brand aimed at the increasing number of business travellers. Our collaboration with Oyo Hotels & Homes will help us combine our synergies to help tackle the hospitality needs of visitors to Ras Al Khaimah. 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," said Christophe Landais, CEO Action Hotels.

“We have kept our Capital O product price close to the Dh200-300 ($54.4-$81.6) range inclusive of all the amenities that are integral for corporates, including high-speed wi-fi, branded toiletries and a comfortable in-room experience. With our multi-brand strategy and a diverse portfolio, we will continue to add value to the experience of guests while delivering higher yields for our asset owners,” added Midha.

Launched in October 2018 in the UAE, Oyo has welcomed over 225,000 guests across 105 hotels and homes and 1,800 rooms in five emirates, including Dubai, Sharjah, Ras Al-Khaimah, Fujairah and Ajman.
