Emaar Properties has launched the Dubai Marina Mall Hotel, a 200-room luxury waterfront hospitality project, within Dubai Marina. The Dubai Marina Mall Hotel is part of the 150,000 sq m Dubai Marina Mall complex that also includes the Dubai Marina Mall Serviced Residences, the Dubai Marina Mall - a modern shopping and entertainment destination, and an 8-storey tower dedicated to diverse cuisines
‘The 5-star Dubai Marina Mall Hotel will meet the strong demand for world-class hotel-rooms in the new growth corridor of Dubai and offers guests easy access to the Dubai Internet City, Dubai Media City and Jebel Ali Free Zone,’ said Mr Marc Dardenne, CEO, Emaar Hospitality Group LLC. ‘The hotel’s waterfront location and rich array of lifestyle amenities will appeal to leisure travellers, while business visitors can enjoy the added advantages of a state-of-the-art meeting and conference facility.’
Dubai Marina Mall Hotel has been intelligently designed to highlight the advantage of its waterfront location. It is elegantly clad in Mashrabia-patterned concrete and features a glass crown that gives the tower a distinct identity.
‘Dubai Marina Mall Hotel will be managed by a reputable 5-star operator, and shall be focused on offering the luxuries expected of world-class hotels,’ said Mr Dardenne. ‘This is reflected in the extensive range of health and fitness facilities, the spa, guest lounges, all-day dining and specialty restaurants and a car park that can accommodate 450 vehicles.’
The hotel has internal walkways to the Dubai Marina Mall, which will have several retail outlets, food courts and entertainment options. The banquet facilities are located above the car park annex giving the guests a private domain for hosting functions. Other facilities include a business centre with extensive meeting facilities, a health spa and fitness centre including change rooms, steam room and whirlpools, a large outdoor pool with children’s pool and an Executive lounge with outdoor terrace and children’s play area located on the 14th Floor.
Dubai Marina is a 50 million sq ft mega project with 11 km of waterfront boardwalk and five marinas that can berth over 500 vessels. A centrepiece of the development is the Dubai Marina Motor Yacht Club, scheduled to open later this year, and offering an array of Marina-related services to members. The club will power Dubai Marina’s concerted efforts to become a premier water sports destination.
Emaar is developing six residential projects within Dubai Marina. Three of them - Al Majara, Al Sahab and The Dubai Marina Towers - have been handed over to residents. Investor response to the three other up-and-coming projects - Marina Promenade, Marina Quays and Park Island - has been overwhelming. The master-development has a projected population of 75,000, and there are already several thousands of people living within Dubai Marina.
