IHG welcomes first Hotel Indigo in the region
IHG has added a new neighbourhood to its boutique and lifestyle brand Hotel Indigo, along the banks of the Dubai Creek, minutes away from Burj Khalifa."We are excited to be opening the first Hotel Indigo in the GCC, India and Africa." said Laura Eggleton, General Manager, Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown. "As our first opening in the region, Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown combines the city’s heritage with the new, fresh buzz of the ever-evolving landscape through local collaborations. We’re looking forward to sharing our neighbourhood story with you." Each of the 269 rooms are inspired by the story of Dubai Creek, whether that’s through the surrealist wallpaper exclusively created by local artists, bespoke shisha lamps or the wardrobes with carved wooden doors, hand-crafted in Mashrabiya style with a modern twist. As part of the Hotel Indigo brand ethos, the hotel has supported local creatives through their close associations with the Alserkal Cultural Foundation, Tashkeel and XVA gallery. The hotel boasts over 200 pieces of art and local design as well as intricately designed carpet on the lobby floor, created through a partnership with the Fatima Bint Mohammed Bin Zayed Initiative (FBMI). Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown is home to Open Sesame, a relaxed eatery offering a vast selection of healthy and wholesome dishes as well as brewing Dubai’s finest locally roasted specialty coffee with partner Café Rider Custom Roastery. Grab a virtuous pick-me-up smoothie from the Juice Bar/Concept Store, Bakala Jooos or, if you’re in search of a fun night out, swing by the Satwa-inspired cocktail bar Off The Wall for uniquely crafted cocktails saturated with graffiti art that tells a story of the Satwa’s vibrancy. The aptly named Orange Feels offers a vast selection of Aperol based cocktails for those who enjoy the hugely popular orange beverage. Guests wanting to destress or relax can visit the wellness deck at Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown, where they can work up a sweat in the gym, find headspace in the yoga studio or lap-it-out in the fabulous 25-metre infinity pool. Being pet-friendly, furry friends are also welcome to stay at Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown.
