“Therefore, with a great deal of expertise in this field, the Barceló Hotel Group is currently operating two fantastic hotels in the UAE and aim to manage up to seven properties by the end of this year. Each hotel is designed to cater for all kinds of traveller.”
Set in the south of Palm Jumeriah, at the heart of Dubai Marina, the new Barceló Residences Dubai Marina is a perfect choice for families, couples and friends.
