In an effort to expand its presence in the UAE, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has its plans to open its first property in Dubai Media City (DMC) in 2017.
The 251-key Mövenpick Hotel Dubai Media City will be built adjacent to the AED 4.5 billion (US$1.23 bn) ‘innovation hub’ announced by the Dubai Government last year . This will be a new centre for communications and technology facilities.
“The cutting-edge innovation hub will significantly expand the district’s population and Mövenpick Hotel Dubai Media City will be well placed to cater to this community and beyond,” said Andreas Mattmüller, chief operating officer, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, Middle East and Asia.
The launch of the new property will take the Dubai portfolio to eight properties by 2017. The company recently unveiled plans to open the 246-key Mövenpick Hotel Apartments Downtown Dubai in the same year.
Mövenpick Hotel Dubai Media City will also feature four restaurants and lounges, a spa, gymnasium and swimming pool along with a large divisible ballroom and four meeting venues.
