Emaar Hospitality Group, the hospitality and leisure business of global developer Emaar Properties, has opened Vida Emirates Hills, an upscale lifestyle hotel in Dubai's Emirates Hills neighborhood.

The 160-room hotel is the third to open in Dubai under the Vida Hotels and Resorts brand and the 16th hotel in the Emaar Hospitality Group portfolio. "Vida Emirates Hills brings the unique value proposition of being the first Vida hotel in the established Emirates Hills neighborhood," said Chris Newman, COO of Emaar Hospitality Group. "It is a lively and vibrant hub that inspires guests and assures a resort-like ambience with spectacular views of two golf courses."

The hotel is within walking distance of Emirates Golf Club (a par-72, 7,301-yard layout) and the 265-acre Address Montgomerie golf course. Guests can play at both courses.
