New and upcoming hotels in Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Bay, Palm Jumeirah and Business Bay
The quality and high standards of Dubai’s hotel industry have long been a defining characteristic of the city’s tourism offering and a contributor to the destination’s overall attractiveness to visitors.
Most recently, two new hotels have opened their doors in Dubai. The waterfront Bulgari Hotel, located at the seahorse-shaped Jumeirah Bay, opened early December, and is the first of its kind residential and hotel establishment in the Middle East bearing the Italian jeweller’s name. But one thing Bulgari will not do is be associated with “100 hotels and become a big player in the hotel industry.”, said Silvio Ursini, Executive Vice-President of Bulgari and head of Bulgari Hotels & Resorts. “Our hotels are for those who want the hotels of old, where everything was crafted to perfection. That’s what we’ve delivered in Dubai.” The hotel, which is from master developer Meraas, consists of 121 keys in the hotel component, offering 50 super-premium suites and villas as part of its inventory as well as six branded residential buildings slated to open shortly.
Also, recently opened in Dubai, the new Renaissance Downtown Hotel by Marriott International. The property is located in Dubai’s Business Bay district, a trendy neighbourhood connected to Downtown Dubai, and offers 298 rooms, including 65 suites. Each room gives guests views of either Burj Khalifa or Dubai Water Canal.
Aside from 2017 hotel openings, Dubai has recently announced two new hotels coming to the city in 2018. In the city’s iconic Dubai Marina, Stella Di Mare hotel is slated to open its doors early 2018. Complete with restaurants, rooftop bar, spa and salon, the five-star property will be the first international location for the hotel brand and will consist of 396 luxurious rooms spread among 31 floors.
Located on the West Crescent of Palm Jumeirah, W Dubai – The Palm will open its stylishly, ultra-modern doors in summer 2018 and will be home to 350 guest rooms and suites. Inspired by fashion, music and design, W Dubai – The Palm encompasses a glamorous spa, trendy pool, private beach, as well as delectable restaurants to choose from.
