Malta-based Corinthia Hotels is expanding to the Middle East with the Corinthia Meydan Beach Dubai located on the JBR beachfront.

Working in partnership with Meydan Group, the 55-story hotel will have 360 rooms and suites, cascading infinity pools, the region’s first EspaLife Spa and several dining options. American design firm AE7 is overseeing the development.

"Corinthia Meydan Beach is an exciting addition to the region’s hospitality landscape, representing both a landmark milestone for us as a brand, and for Dubai," said Corinthia’s Area Managing Director Middle East Matthew Dixon. "This hotel is in the enviable position of offering the market something fresh and new; an interpretation of heritage, culture and service values that we feel have not yet been bought to the UAE."
