Dubai, April 28, 2012
Le Méridien Dubai has announced a massive Dh450 million ($122.5 million) expansion plan under which 197 spacious guest rooms will be added to the project besides new and refurbished ballrooms catering to 1,550 guests.
The leading hotel brand said the much anticipated new expansion of its premises will be held under the directive of wasl Asset Management Group headed by Hesham Abdulla Al Qassim.
Strategically positioned next to the thriving gateway to Dubai, the new expansion of 197 guest rooms and new banqueting facilities will continue to further deliver the hotel’s exceptional service standards, values and simultaneously address new market trends.
By remaining sensitive to the image of Le Méridien Dubai as a city hotel in resort style settings, the extension will abide by Le Méridien’s global brand identity.
Mixing contemporary culture with Le Méridien’s European heritage will create a culturally refined, meaningful and stimulating atmosphere for guests, allowing them to discover more than just a new destination.
The 8-storey building housing the 197 new guest rooms is being constructed adjacent to the current Royal Club, and will further increase the current room inventory of 383 to 580, said a statement from Le Méridien Dubai.
The new guest rooms will each be of minimum 50 sqm in size with a modern minimalist interior and fitted with the latest in technology and guest comfort.
Personalized customer and butler service on each floor, a rooftop pool and an exclusive Club lounge, in addition to the current Royal Club benefits, are only some of the features and benefits guests can expect.
According to Le Méridien, the work on the guestrooms project began six months ago and is due for completion by May 2013.
The banqueting facilities too will undergo expansion and refurbishment starting July 2012, the company said.
The existing Falcon Ballroom will be rebuilt to accommodate 1000-capacity crowd and the Great ballroom will witness extensive refurbishment to reflect modern trends in décor and technology; both ballrooms together will accommodate upto 1550 guests, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
