Corinthia Hotels is to manage the Meydan Group owned resort property in Dubai.
The Corinthia at Meydan Beach — as the hotel and residences will be known — will comprise 300 bedrooms and 60 high-end serviced apartments when it opens for business in 2019. Its architecture features a stepped podium wrapped around landscaped pools and gardens cascading onto the beach.
The 55-storey tower will sit atop one side of the podium, commanding views of sights such as the Palm Island and the under development Dubai Eye.
Under the terms of the agreement Corinthia reached with Meydan Group, the former will also support in the design development of the property, which is being built on the site of the former Meydan Beach Club.
The American design firm AE7 is the architect. “We are very happy to have appointed Corinthia to operate our new luxury hotel under construction at Meydan Beach,” said Mohammad Al Shehhi, Meydan’s Board Director.
“Our core business is the global management of horse racing, as well as large scale mixed-use real estate developments in Dubai. With Corinthia as our hospitality partner, we continue to complement our array of capabilities, with our flagship beachside development as a starting point.”
According to Corinthia Chairman, Alfred Pisani, said: “The energy, vision and quality of resources assembled for this project by Meydan, and now including Corinthia, will ensure this will be another landmark milestone for us, and for Dubai.”
