Mövenpick to open second Dubai hotel
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts (MH&R) recently announced a management contract for a new Mövenpick Resort as part of the Jumeirah Beach Residence Development, in continuation of the group’s growth policy in the Middle East and the UAE.
The official signing of the contract took place early October in Abu Dhabi. The joint signatories were HH Sheikh Nahayan Bin Mabarak Al Nahyan, minister of higher education and scientific research, Omar Al Askari, Faran LLC on behalf of the owning company and Jean Gabriel Pérès, president & CEO Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts.
“We are proud to be associated with HH Sheikh Nahayan Bin Mabarak Al Nahyan and with Omar Al Askari, the partner company for the development of this new Resort,” said Jean Gabriel Pérès. “This new resort hotel, scheduled to open in 2006 will be a valuable addition to our portfolio.”
The Mövenpick Resort Jumeirah Beach is located in the heart of the Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR), a landmark project from the same team that developed Dubai Internet City (DIC) and Dubai Media City (DMC). The hotel is comprised of a Tower and a Podium, and the imaginative design has been influenced both by the property’s proximity to the sea and JBR development. The Tower contains 298 guest rooms, including 13 suites and 45 Executive Club rooms, with the Podium housing all the public spaces including the Mövenpick Restaurant for around the clock dining, a speciality restaurant, Banqueting rooms and a Business Centre. A podium will provide guests easy access to the beach.
