Dubai, May 6, 2008
The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina last night celebrated its opening with a gala event.
More than 2,000 people attended event at Dubai’s very latest five-star beachfront resort.
Guests were encouraged to explore the hotel at leisure, with a champagne reception on floors two and three above the main lobby.
The hotel offers a unique selection of bars and restaurants, from a contemporary grill with open kitchen at Hunters Room & Grill to the lively atmosphere of Senyar, serving an international array of tapas with live entertainment. Oeno wine bar is set to become the place to unwind after work, while Spice Emporium will serve up flavours of Asia. The Atrium in the Grand Lobby will serve afternoon tea while Sin provides a chocolate-fuelled feast. Casual dining options include the Library, serving coffee and good books; all-day dining outlet Blue Orange, and a number of poolside bars.
“The idea of the party was to give each guest a true experience of the hotel. We effectively gave them the run of the hotel for one evening, encouraging guests to sample our many innovative dining options, explore our exquisite interiors, and relax in our verdant gardens and outside terraces,” said Michael Scully, complex general manager, Le Meridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina and The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina.
“The highlight of the evening was the main reception at the Serdall Ballroom, which enabled us to showcase what Westin is all about. Westin properties are distinctive through their architecture, innovative interiors and exemplary services. I truly believe we delivered the hottest party of the year, with plenty of surprises, great food and creative cocktails,” Scully added.
