An affiliate of Hyatt Hotels Corporation has entered into a management agreement with Wasl Asset Management Group, one of the largest real estate development and management companies in Dubai, for the development of an Andaz-branded hotel at La Mer—a lifestyle district in the coastal area of Jumeirah. 

Expected to open in 2020, the property will be the first Andaz-branded hotel in Dubai and the second Andaz hotel in the United Arab Emirates, joining Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi (expected to open in Q4 2018).

“We are always seeking to add value to Dubai’s hospitality market with stand-out projects in iconic locations,” Hesham Abdulla Al Qassim, CEO of Wasl Asset Management Group, said in a statement. “This new venture with Hyatt is yet another seal of quality that aligns with our vision to offer superior real estate and lifestyle options...Andaz Dubai La Mer will enrich our portfolio and introduce more than 150 rooms and suites in the dynamic area of Jumeirah.”
