Westin Difference plans Dubai debut
Dubai, April 13, 2008
The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina is set to bring its signature ‘Westin Difference’ to Dubai.
The five-star resort property will open on May 1, marking the stylish brand’s entry into the Middle East market, the company said in a statement.
“Westin Hotels & Resorts are about effortless style and gracious attitude, and that is exactly what we plan to bring to Dubai,” said Michael Scully, complex general manager, Le Meridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina and The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina.
“Every Westin, and there are over 120 worldwide, offers a stunning tranquil setting to guests. This Westin will be a place for everyone to relax, revive and escape,” he added.
“Westin properties are distinctive through their architecture, innovative interiors and exemplary services. As the region’s flagship property, The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina will inspire with its stylish interiors and satisfy through its anticipatory services,” he said.
The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina joins sister property Le Meridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina to create a combined beachfront complex that will offer some of the best hotel and leisure facilities in Dubai.
“The two properties, along with the Dubai International Marine Club, represent a unique hospitality offering in the emirate,” said Saeed Mohamed Ahmad Hareb, managing director of the Dubai International Marine Club (DIMC) and owner’s representative for Le Meridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina and The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina.
“Guests will benefit from our key beachfront location, extended landscaped gardens, and wide range of facilities, including our fleet of racing yachts and sailing vessels,” said Hareb.
Embracing Westin’s characteristics of personal, renewal and distinctive, Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina will offer Westin signature services, including the Heavenly Bed, Westin Workout and Westin Service Express.
“Westin is famous for being a highly innovative brand. The launch of the iconic Heavenly Bed in 1999 revolutionised the sleep experience at our properties. In fact these beds are so comfortable and so popular with guests that many opt to, quite literally, take them home,” said Scully.
The property will feature 294 rooms, including 216 deluxe rooms, 52 Westin Executive rooms, and 24 suites, apart from a spa, a health club, and four bars and four themed restaurants.
State-of-the-art conference and banqueting facilities include an 8,999 square feet ballroom, an Italian designed conference centre with seven meeting rooms, an outdoor beachside amphitheatre, and a variety of lawn locations accommodating up to 5,000 guests.
The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina is located on a stunning 1,200 metre private shoreline, and will feature a 238-berth marina, five swimming pools, a water sports centre, a sailing academy, and facilities for deep sea fishing and boat chartering. – TradeArabia News Service
