Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank (ADIB) has teamed up with hotel management company Rotana to introduce the new ADIB Rotana Rewards Exclusive Card.
The new ADIB-Rotana card is the first co-branded hospitality card in the wider Central Eastern Europe & Middle East and Africa (CEEMEA) region developed by a local issuer, as well as the first across the globe by an Islamic bank.
Working in conjunction with the existing Rotana Rewards Exclusive program, the new card can be used for a host of Rotana benefits such as free hotel stays and dining offers across any of the 50 Rotana hotels and resorts, and over 250 restaurants across the region.
The new card will offer cardholders Rotana Rewards points every time they spend using their new card, including 2 Rotana points for every AED1 spent at any of its properties, one point for every AED1 spent in the UAE, and three points for every AED1 spent globally. Cardholders will also secure welcome points following activation of the card.
The card will incorporate all benefits of the Rotana Rewards Exclusive program in its annual fee, including extended checkout times, hotel discounts as well as dining discount. It will also offer various lifestyle and travel benefits such as unlimited airport lounge access, concierge services, rental car discounts, and premium offers for shopping, dining, and travel.
ADIB retail banking global head Sarvesh Sarup commented: "The card will bring customers unparalleled value in terms of lifestyle and financial benefits from both the partners.
"In keeping with best international practices, the card will offer customers the benefit of global contactless payments and special recognition at ADIB’s rapidly expanding Merchant network. We look forward to working with Rotana to keep the new card at the forefront of innovation and value."
