Radisson Hospitality has signed its first Radisson hotel in the Middle East in partnership with Dubai-based real estate developer Damac Properties.
Radisson Hotel, Dubai Damac Hills in the UAE will have 481 guestrooms, including one- and two-bedroom suites. The property currently is under construction and slated to open in fourth-quarter 2019.
The hotel will be near two major highways, the newly opened Al Maktoum International Airport (Dubai World Central), the site of Expo 2020 and new residential and business districts, including Dubai Motor City and Dubai Investment Park.
The property will be located at Dubai's Damac Hills residential community, developed by Damac Properties in Dubailand. The new hotel’s site is surrounded by parkland and an 18-hole golf course.
"Damac Hills is one of Dubai's newest communities and is already home to more than 1,000 families who have moved into the villas, townhouses and apartments nestled around the fairways of its championship golf course, the Trump International Club Dubai," Hussain Sajwani, chairman of Damac, said in a statement.
The Radisson Hotel Group portfolio now has 81 hotels and more than 20,000 guestrooms in operation and under development across the Middle East region. Six of these hotels operate in Dubai under the Park Inn by Radisson and Radisson Blu brands.
The next Radisson Hotel Group property to open in Dubai will be the Radisson Red Dubai Silicon Oasis in the third quarter. The 171-room hotel will be near Dubai International Airport and Al Maktoum Airport.
One of the newest additions to Radisson Hotel Group’s pipeline in the Middle East is the Radisson Blu Hotel, Al Ahsa in Saudi Arabia. Slated to open in 2020 the hotel will have 172 guestrooms in the center of Al Ahsa and southeast of Al Khobar. The property will be near Al Ahsa Airport and Al Ahsa University.
