Last month Jumeirah announced it has signed an agreement with Abu Dhabi United Hospitality to develop Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort in Abu Dhabi. Expected to welcome guests from September 2018, Al Wathba Desert Resort will be operated by Jumeirah.
A luxurious Arabian-style hotel set in the desert 50 km to the south east of Abu Dhabi in the Al Wathba District, Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort will spread over an area of more than 20,000 sq m. It will comprise 90 hotel rooms and 13 villas, an all-day-dining outlet, pool and rooftop bars, Talise spa and an offsite desert camp, conference and meeting facilities.
Marc Dardenne, Jumeirah’s chief operating officer, said: “Growing the Jumeirah portfolio is one of our strategic priorities, and we are very pleased to partner with Abu Dhabi United Hospitality on this development initiative, aligned with the UAE Vision 2021. Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort will be the 12th luxury Jumeirah hotel in the UAE and this innovative project offers Jumeirah a wonderful opportunity to showcase our truly Arabian hospitality. We are confident the Resort will be an outstanding destination and will further boost tourism in the emirate.”
