Guests to get unmatched arrival experience.

The finishing touches are being put together ahead of the opening in May of the Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina.

Designed by Italian design firm Studitalia Décor, the interiors of the 294-room hotel have been selected to provide a wide range of modern design concepts.

"The strong architectural personality and monumental character of the hotel gave us our starting point for planning the interiors. Having such an eclectic exterior, we decided the interiors should be equally dynamic, so that the whole project would guide the guest through a journey in time," explained Massimo Bertelli, designer, Studitalia Décor.

"The interiors have been designed to provoke continuous feelings of deja vue in the guests, as familiar objects are given a new, modern twist but still evoke their traditional charms. This duality is best presented in the lobby area, where a typically shaped reception balcony is made extraordinary by its monumental size," Bertelli added.

The entrance lobby has been designed to give a feeling of openness and space, with carefully selected plant and flower displays.

A three-dimensional mosaic floor sourced from Italy will also adorn the entrance, providing an eye-catching focal point.

The design is finished off by pieces of art in the form of Murano glass, from Venice.

The resort is also placing emphasis on its new Sensory Welcome, which comprises white tea scents and muted music along with soft lighting and botanical products.

"We are aiming for an arrival experience like no other. Using soothing scents, signature music, calming botanicals and atmospheric lighting to help our guests feel refreshed and energised," said Michael Scully, complex general manager, The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina.

All rooms and suites will have Heavenly Beds, luxurious bath amenities and high-tech LCD TV screens.

The property will feature a spa and health club, four bars and four themed restaurants.

There will also be a state-of-the art conference centre with seven meeting rooms and an outdoor beachside amphitheatre.
