The Malta-based Corinthia Hotels International announced the signing of a long-term management agreement with Golden Sands Hotel of Dubai for the operation of the 371 all-suite Ramada Hotel and Suites Jumeirah Beach.
The property is set to open in January of 2008 and forms part of the larger Jumeirah Beach Residence master complex, a unique high-rise development located minutes away from Dubai’s golden sandy beaches.
The management agreement is a first for Corinthia Hotels International in this thriving destination since signing a joint venture agreement with Wyndham Worldwide, last year, for the exclusive operation of Corinthia, Wyndham and Ramada Plaza branded hotels in the EMEA region.
In addition to the 371 suites, the new hotel will feature a number of superior amenities, including an all-day dining room, a speciality restaurant, bar, a gymnasium and fitness room, an outdoor swimming pool, several meeting rooms and secured underground parking.
“We are delighted to be entering Dubai for the first time with such a wonderful product, having successfully established our management expertise over the last 45 years in exclusive destinations such as Malta, Prague, Budapest, St Petersburg, Lisbon and Tunis, to name a few. We pride ourselves in being able to introduce a new dimension of warmth, colour and vitality to all our new operations, elements that blend in perfectly with this amazing City” said Tony Potter, chief executive officer of Corinthia Hotels International.
The Jumeirah Beach Residence lies in close proximity to Dubai Internet City, Dubai Media City and Emirates Golf Club. With an impressive two million square metre footprint, the development represents the world’s largest single phase project of its kind.
