New Emirates hotel opens doors

The new Emirates Marina Hotel and Residence

EMIRATES Hotels and Resorts' first city-based hotel, the 59-storey luxury Emirates Marina Hotel & Residence, is to open its doors on November 1.

Offering 261 suites in a range of single, double and three-roomed configurations, the hotel is a fitting addition to Dubai’s skyline, being one of Dubai’s top-ten highest buildings at 256 metres.
At the gateway entrance to the Dubai Marina, the hotel is set within Dubai’s most sought-after lifestyle and fashionable districts.
It is just a stone’s throw away from Dubai Media and Internet Cities and other business, leisure and beach facilities.
Guests have easy and regular transfers to nearby malls, as well as access to the popular Jumeirah Beach.
The hotel’s noticeably large suites offer luxury fittings, separate lounge/dining room areas, and in-room dining facilities from dedicated kitchens.
Guests are also assured staggering views of the Gulf, the Palm Islands or the Dubai Marina from their suites.
The hotel offers new and fresh approaches in its restaurant concepts.
From its street-level ‘deli-style’ Counter Culture restaurant, to the Mediterranean-style restaurant Azur, focusing on organic, farm-to-fork menus, and the international, slightly avant-garde restaurant on the penthouse floor called The Observatory, these are sure to excite.

Emirates’ Timeless Spa, first initiated in the flagship Al Maha Desert Resort, is an addition appreciated by both leisure and corporate travellers.
The spa offers several unique treatments and products developed by specialists for Al Maha, and now for the Dubai Marina and Residence, with additional products and treatments from Sodashi and Babor. These professional-level ranges, regarded as leaders in the spa industry, are not available at retail outlets, said the spokesman. 
Tony Williams, vice president, Emirates Hotels & Resort stressed the significance of the new property as another contribution by Emirates towards realising the Dubai Government’s vision of transforming the city into one of the world's top business and tourist centres.
The hotel is the second in a series of new projects owned and managed by Emirates’ Hotels & Resorts, the hospitality division of the airline.
