BY the end of the year, Al Bustan Centre and Residence in Dubai will have a brand new look.
It is revamping both its food and beverage and its room products in the buildup to a new project on its property. General manager Moussa El Hayek said that besides a new atrium that will connect the three buildings of the property, new F&B facilities are also being added.
The new extension will feature a vast new lobby, lounges and a business centre off the lobby as well as a majestic new entrance that will incorporate a relocation of the current main entrance. El Hayek added: “Part of the redesign will be several new theme restaurants.”
Renovations and decorations are Al Bustans emblem this season; they have successfully and completely redesigned several of their products, most notably, their rooms. New games and rides have been added to their already fun-rich indoor amusement park, the Fantasy Kingdom. The relatively new Al Nahda restaurant has proven to be a popular destination for serious business to be conducted. The all-day dinning restaurant is an elevator ride away from the apartments.
Al Bustan enjoys a wide range of top-class facilities, from their studios to their three-bedroom apartments to their royal suites that add up to an impressive 640-room unit.
The executive club made up of a dining room and lounge, as well as a top service VIP attribute, also offers luxurious breakfast for the Business Class customer. Many airline and crew members have chosen Al Bustan’s Café Lounge and Crew Lounge as relaxing areas where freshly-baked pastries, cakes, coffee and tea are served.
“The hotel apartments are positioned as a residence with the services of a five-star hotel,” explains El Hayek. There is a business centre, that is made up of a seminar room, four meeting rooms, separate health clubs for men and women, where customers can enjoy massages, saunas, steam rooms, a game of tennis on either of their two courts and can go for a swim in the pool.
Al Bustan has recently benefited from new business and new market segments; they have successfully attracted new business groups as well as large incentive groups from places such as India, Malaysia and Hong Kong. This success is attributed to the extra effort the centre has put in events and exhibitions held in the Far East and Indian sub-continent. Tourists from European countries, including Germans, Britons, French, Maltese and other people from that part of the world, as well choose Al Bustan as an attractive destination.
This growth Al Bustan is experiencing could also be attributed to Dubai’s thriving and diverse economy, where tourism, trade and other businesses are growing rapidly. This city is proving to be a top destination for people all over the world. High level occupancy in Dubai is motivating newcomers to book in Al Bustan. In the last three months, the property has experienced over 94 per cent average occupancy.
In addition, the Al Bustan Centre shopping mall has over 80 outlets featuring top brands of premium clothing, cosmetics and jewellery, besides a state-of-the-art food court serving multi-cuisines.
