Omniyat eyes Dubai luxury hotel launch in 2020

DUBAI, November 1, 2017

UAE-based developer Omniyat has announced plans to open its 167-room luxury hotel, The Langham, Downtown Dubai, in the third quarter of 2020.

The hotel, to be managed by Langham Hospitality Group, will be located in the heart of the Marasi development on the banks of Dubai Canal. It is expected to open in time for Expo 2020 Dubai.

In anticipation of the project, Omniyat has announced that it will hold a unique Langham-style experiential demonstration in Dubai next week, which will transport visitors to the famous London hotel and give the UAE its first taste of The Langham’s quintessential style and flavour.

The one-day event, to be held at the ballroom of the Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach on November 6 and inspired by The Langham, London, will be designed with authentic Langham furnishings, service and the hotel’s iconic loose-leaf tea — The Langham,  London is credited as being the birthplace of afternoon tea, said the developer.

It is open to members of public and will also act as a fully immersive sales event. This will be the first opportunity for potential buyers to invest in Langham Place Residences, Downtown Dubai, it stated.

Omniyat said it is offering eight per cent guaranteed return on the high-end apartments, as a show of the developer’s confidence in the iconic brand and the project.

Both the hotel and residences boast stunning views of the new marina on one side and the Burj Khalifa on the other. It will be a 167-room hotel with 239 fully-serviced  luxury residences, ranging from one-, two- and three-bedroom suites to duplex penthouses.

Mahdi Amjad, the executive chairman and CEO, said: "Omniyat has always strived to break new ground in Dubai’s property sector and to collaborate with the world’s most prestigious brands. By finally bringing The Langham to the UAE, we continue this core strength of our work."

The Langham Hotels and Resorts brand is the pinnacle of high-end service and recognised around the world for its richly decorated rooms, contemporary furnishings and its inimitable English air of prestige, stated Amjad.
"Dubai has been longing for a hotel like this to shake the luxury sector and redefine luxury lifestyle in the market," he added.

Andrew Jessop, the senior vie-president of Worldwide Development at Langham Hospitality Group, said: "The arrival of the Langham Hotels and Resorts brand in the Middle East establishes a new territory for us, and it happens to be one of the most evolving hospitality markets in the world."

"Partnering with Omniyat was a natural choice for us, as their iconic property portfolio mirrors Langham Hospitality Group’s ethos of operating historic or design-driven buildings," noted Jessop.

“We’re looking forward to celebrating the opening of The Langham, Downtown Dubai just as the city gets ready to host the world as part of Expo 2020, another landmark occasion in Dubai’s achievement timeline,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
