In addition to 378 guestrooms, the hotel will also offer an assortment of signature restaurants, including its Hard Rock Cafe, along with meeting facilities, spa amenities, and entertainment.

The project will be designed and managed out of the Aedas Interiors office in Dubai led by interior design director Fergus Duncan, along with input from Aedas’ international interiors teams as required.
