The first of two Nakheel hotels at Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai is now open, part of the developer’s Dh3 billion hospitality expansion programme.
The 372-room hotel, managed by Premier Inn Hotels, was inaugurated on Sunday, the Dubai developer said in a statement.
Ibn Battuta Mall is currently undergoing a Dh700 million expansion. Nakheel’s first hotel, at Dragon Mart, opened earlier this year.
“This is one of 14 projects in our hotel pipeline that will bring more than 5,200 new hotel rooms to Dubai by 2020, which in turn will contribute significantly to realising the government’s tourism vision,” stated Nakheel Chairman Ali Rashid Lootah.
Premier Inn is also the operating partner for Nakheel’s second hotel at Dragon Mart, due to open in 2018.
Ibn Battuta Mall welcomes more than 20 million visitors a year. It already boasts over 400 shops, restaurants and leisure facilities including a 21-screen Novo cinema complex and a Fun City family entertainment zone. Another 500 stores, a second cinema complex, and a hotel are on the way as part of the mall’s expansion.
Nakheel’s hospitality portfolio features a range of accommodation, including luxury projects on Palm Jumeirah, beach resorts at Deira Islands and mid-range hotels attached to the developer’s major shopping malls.
