DELANO Dubai to open in 2017

Morgans Hotel Group Co. has announced its partnership with IFA Hotels & Resorts (IFA HR) to bring the DELANO brand to the Middle East with DELANO Dubai. Scheduled to open in 2017 as the third hotel in the Delano portfolio, DELANO Dubai’s 110-key deluxe hotel apartment property will be situated on Palm Jumeirah and will form part of a contemporary mixed-used resort development known as The8.

The 110 apartments will include one, two, and three bedroom units with modern furnishings and fittings, as well as a Presidential Suite. Guests of the DELANO Dubai property will feel a sense of familiarity and affinity with the original DELANO properties in South Beach, Miami and Las Vegas – all of which have a clean and contemporary aesthetic.

Managing this hotel will be IFA Hotel Investments (IFA HI).
