Morgans to open Delano hotel in Dubai

Morgans Hotel Group, the operator of the Miami-based Delano hotel, is launching the brand in Dubai.

Delano Dubai, scheduled to open by 2017, is the third property under the Delano portfolio and will be operated in partnership with IFA Hotels and Resorts.

The 110-key deluxe hotel apartments will be situated in Palm Jumeirah and will be a part of a mixed-use resort development known as The8.

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

The apartments will have one, two and three bedroom units along with a presidential suite. They will also be styled in a similar way to the original Delano properties in South Beach in Miami and Las Vegas.

The luxury boutique hotel apartments also fit in with the theme of The8, which looks to replicate the style of a Miami Beach resort. The8 will contain extensive water-sports facilities, a gym, tennis courts, a beachfront restaurant, beach cabanas, barbeque, event areas and family amenities.

The development is currently under construction and will have both the Delano-branded hotel and other stand-alone residential properties.

IFA Hotel Investments will oversee the asset management and operational aspect of the development.
