Emaar opens 197-room boutique hotel in Dubai

DUBAI, January 12, 2015

Emaar Hospitality Group, the leisure subsidiary of leading regional developer Emaar Properties, has officially opened the doors of Manzil Downtown Dubai, a new upscale lifestyle boutique hotel that celebrates the warmth of Arabian hospitality in a culturally stimulating, tech-savvy setting.

Manzil Downtown Dubai, managed by Vida Hotels and Resorts, is located centrally on Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, the thoroughfare in Emaar’s mega-development, renowned as ‘The Centre of Now,’ said a statement from Emaar.

Overlooking Souk Al Bahar, the hotel is in walking distance to Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, and The Dubai Mall, the world’s largest retail and entertainment destination.

Artistic in spirit and contemporary in presentation, the 197-room Manzil Downtown Dubai serves as a stylised hub that provides an imaginative interpretation of Arabian culture for Arab guests and a culturally stimulating experience for international visitors, said a top official.

"Arabian hospitality is truly unparalleled and serves as the fundamental growth driver of Dubai’s tourism sector," stated Philippe Zuber, the chief operating officer, Emaar Hospitality Group.

"With Manzil, born and bred in Dubai, we are integrating our region’s cultural ethos with the convenience and comfort of modernity to offer distinctive value," said Zuber.

"The project stands apart across all touch-points – from design to décor and service standards - and will focus on engaging guests meaningfully and assuring them authentic must-return lifestyle experiences," he added.

Zuber said the addition of Manzil Downtown Dubai to the Vida Hotels and Resorts portfolio also reflects its goal of connecting with the new generation of global travellers, especially local Emirati and GCC guests, who are discerning in their preferences, seek consistent value and cherish a fuss-free hospitality choice.

The hotel is designed to appeal to the global urban travellers who want to discover a modern twist on Arab hospitality in a sophisticated contemporary yet comfortable ambience. Visitors from across the Arab world will be able to revel in an imaginative interpretation of their culture, he explained.

Defined by the tagline, ‘When Home Is Arabic,’ all rooms in Manzil Downtown Dubai are decorated to evoke the classical harmony of Arabian design, stated Zuber.

Distinguished by a palette of brown, beige and white, the boutique hotel has 155 standard King rooms laid out on 32 sq m are, with Burj Khalifa or pool views, as well as 56 twin rooms and eight Burj View Suites with balcony spanning 48 sq m.

Connected room provision is provided for families. Tastefully adorned, and cosy yet spare, the rooms feature 42 inch LCD TVs, IPTV system for room service, web browsing and music, complimentary Wi-Fi, media hub and tea and coffee facilities are standard, it added.

At the heart of Manzil Downtown Dubai is The Courtyard that lends social energy and creates a haven of comfort and interaction. It also serves cuisines from the wider Middle East with hubby-bubbly in an al fresco setting, said Zuber.

Manzil Downtown Dubai features Boulevard Kitchen, an all-day dining restaurant that serves food from across the Middle East, freshly prepared in an open plan kitchen, in addition to authentic Emirati desserts introduced by an Emirati chef.

The adjoining lounge with direct access to Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard offers an Arab-fusion beverage menu featuring regional teas and other specialties such as Arabic afternoon tea. Guests can unwind at the terrace overlooking Burj Khalifa, as they enjoy a wide selection of beverages, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
