Mubasher: The UAE-headquartered hospitality company and hotel operator TIME Hotels plans to launch five properties across the Middle East during 2019.
A further expansion to its business is planned, as TIME Hotels targets 35 properties by 2025.
The properties are expected to be revealed during Arabian Travel Market 2019, which takes place at Dubai World Trade Centre on 28 April and 1 May.
