October opening for Sharia-compliant Millennium
The Millennium Burooj Suites Hotel Apartments opening October 2007 in Port Saeed, Dubai, holds the double honour of being the first all-suite hotel worldwide for Millennium Hotels & Resorts as well as the company’s first sharia-compliant residential property.
“We are delighted to be opening the first all-suite five-star hotel for Millennium Hotels & Resorts in such an exciting growth market as Dubai, said general manager Reda Moukthar.
With an average suite size of 40 to 135 sqm, the Millennium Burooj Suites will be a truly five-star property with services and facilities to rival any in the city, he added.
“Whether for business travellers requiring spacious accommodations in which to work and relax, or suites with kitchen facilities and additional bedrooms for accompanying family members, the hotel will cater to a varied market and nationality base,” he said in a statement.
The hotel is sited within walking distance of Dubai’s most famous mall, Deira City Center, which offers over 350 shopping outlets plus dining and entertainment venues.
Moukthar said he anticipated tremendous interest from countries within the GCC as a result. “Also, corporate guests from around the world will benefit from staying minutes from Dubai International Airport, close to outstanding golf courses and with easy access to all main Dubai highways. “
With 164 luxuriously spacious well appointed one and two bedroom suites plus two penthouse suite, Millennium Burooj Suites will also offer three restaurants, swimming pool, gymnasium and meeting rooms. Many of the rooms command magnificent views of the Creek with its landscaped parks, and include balconies, kitchenettes, bathrooms with separate standing shower and Jacuzzi, flat screen TVs, luxuriously comfortable seating and working desks with high speed internet connections and business centre.
Developed by Burooj Properties, Millennium Burooj Suites represents the first of several Sharia’a residential hotels to be announced by the developer. All-suite hotels are growing in popularity in the region due to the flexibility of the accommodations and additional facilities offered to guests whether on business or pleasure; Millennium Burooj Suites embraces the traditional values of Islamic hospitality, ensuring that all guests’ needs are catered for, whilst providing the excellence in service for which Millennium Hotels are recognised throughout the world.
