The Dubai Creek is continuing to drive the tourism and hospitality sectors in the emirate, in the lead up to the iconic area’s bid to be registered as a Unesco World Heritage site in June.
With century-old architectural structures and a number of bustling souks and other tourist attractions, Dubai Municipality is expecting the number of visitors to the area to double to four million following the Unesco registration, generating extra revenue of Dh10 billion per year, according to Rashid Bukhash, Director of the Architectural Heritage Department.
In line with the Dubai Municipality’s vision to reaffirm the Dubai Creek’s position as a bustling hub of trade, tourism and hospitality, the iconic Sheraton Dubai Creek Hotel and Towers is set to reopen its doors on April 9, following a $50 million (Dh183.6 million) renovation and refurbishment project of its guest rooms, public spaces and restaurants.
“The Creek has long been known as the heart and soul of Dubai, and the Sheraton Dubai Creek Hotel and Towers has been a part of this history for more than 35 years,” said Stephan Vanden Auweele, General Manager.
“We have had the pleasure of extending our warm hospitality on the trade waters of Dubai Creek for close to four decades, and we’re proud to be able to help discerning guests rediscover Dubai’s iconic gathering place.”
