Hilton to manage Nakheel's new hotel at Jumeirah Village

DUBAI, August 31, 2016

Dubai master developer Nakheel today signed a letter of intent with Hilton Worldwide to manage a new, 256-room hotel at Jumeirah Village Triangle, Dubai, UAE.
Under the proposed agreement, the 18-storey hotel will be managed under the DoubleTree by Hilton brand, known for its warm, friendly service that provides upscale comfort for business and leisure travellers, said a statement.

Announced three weeks ago as a major new feature of Nakheel’s upcoming Al Khail Avenue retail, dining and leisure hub, DoubleTree by Hilton will be directly linked to the mall’s 350 shops, restaurants and entertainment outlets.

The hotel will have an all-day restaurant, coffee shop, lounge, outdoor terrace, pool deck, gymnasium and car park, as well as a leisure club with preferential membership rates for residents of the Jumeirah Village Triangle community.

Nakheel awarded the Dh1.5-billion ($408.26 million) contract to build the mall and hotel complex earlier this month. Construction will begin in October this year, with completion in 2019.

The signing ceremony was attended by Ali Rashid Lootah, Nakheel chairman; Rudi Jagersbacher, president, Middle East, Africa & Turkey, Hilton Worldwide; Carlos Khneisser, Vice President Development, Middle East, Hilton Worldwide; Aqil Kazim, chief commercial officer, Nakheel;  Masood Al Zarooni, managing director Nakheel Projects Construction; and Thorsten Ries, managing director Nakheel Hospitality & Leisure.

Nakheel’s growing hospitality portfolio includes nearly 5,200 rooms across 14 hotels and serviced apartment complexes at various locations in Dubai, while its retail project portfolio – the biggest in the Middle East – has more than 16 million sq ft of leasable space in operation or under development, the company said. – TradeArabia News Service
