Corinthia Hotels has signed agreements with UAE-based Meydan Group to provide technical services and manage a luxury beachfront resort 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.
Internationally-renowned American design professionals AE7, who have over 40 years’ experience in the Middle East, are the appointed architects and designers.
Corinthia chairman Alfred Pisani said:
“We are immensely proud of our association with Meydan and of our first Corinthia Hotel in Dubai. 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.”
The design of the hotel features a 55-storey tower sitting atop a stepped podium with pools and gardens cascading onto the beach with indoor and outdoor leisure and dining facilities, a luxury spa, a club and banqueting amenities.
Guests will be able to enjoy views towards the Palm Island and the Dubai Eye, which is currently under development.
The luxury hotel and residences is the latest in a series of major developments being undertaken by Meydan Group, which include large scale mixed-use urban and leisure developments across various prime locations in Dubai.
