FORM Hotel is part of Marriott Bonvoy, a 136-room boutique luxury hotel and the only Design Hotels™ property in the Middle East.

As is expected, FORM Hotel has a wide variety of personalised artistic experiences.

What are some trends that you are noticing for 2022?
The Dubai Expo 2020 brought an opportunity for the hospitality industry to get a global-stature positioning. The impact is not just on the tourism industry but almost all sectors witnessed a great boost such as education, healthcare, retail, hospitality, entertainment, construction, real estate, and IT, among others.
We have witnessed a remarkable recovery in the hospitality industry with the increasing demand for reservations and bookings. Throughout the year, we have increased the value of our property by introducing special packages. These work better than discounts for increasing demand, as they include something extra for the same price and can help us stand out from the competition. The trend is expected to continue.
What are your key feeder markets and demographics for this year?
After the turbulent days, we saw a surge in the local market followed by KSA, Germany, USA, UK and other countries around the world.
