Dubai, November 5, 2013
Melia Hotels International and Omniyat have signed a deal for the opening of a new hotel ME Dubai in early 2016.
Mahdi Amjad, executive chairman and CEO of Omniyat and Gabriel Escarrer, CEO and vice chairman of Meliá Hotels International signed the agreement for the project, which was announced at Cityscape Global held recently in Dubai, during the World Travel market in London.
Amjad said: “Last October, we surprised the market by announcing the first hotel entirely designed by Zaha Hadid. I can see that ME Dubai will be a quantum leap in the Middle East Hotel & Real Estate market.”
“Dubai is in full recovery these days, along with the dynamic Middle East region, and the ME Dubai hotel will provide a completely new hotel and leisure offering for the emerging and very specific social psychographic: the open minded and stylish crowd looking for places and people to engage with,” Escarrer added. - TradeArabia News Service
