Minor Hotel Group plans UAE growth


Minor Hotel Group has two new properties to its United Arab Emirates pipeline. Construction will begin soon on the Anantara Jebel Dhanna and Avani Jebel Dhanna in Abu Dhabi, and both are slated to open in 2018.
Dhabi Contracting owns and will operate both properties, and Aecom has been appointed as the lead architecture and interior design consultant. 

Anantara Jebel Dhanna Villas will have 60 rooms while the Avani Jebel Dhanna Hotel will have 230 rooms. 
Anantara currently has six properties in operation in the UAE–five in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and Anantara The Palm Dubai. A new Anantara resort is under development in Ras Al Khaimah, and a second Anantara resort will open in Dubai in 2018.

The first Avani announcement for the country was made in September last year for the development of a resort in Dubai to open in 2018.
