Four Seasons to build second Dubai hotel
Company to follow Jumeirah Beach Road property with one at DIFC set to open next year
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has announced that it is planning to open its second property in Dubai just months after it opened its first.
The new hotel will open at Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) next year and will target business travellers, the operator said.
The hotel will have 106 rooms, a 24-hour restaurant, lobby level tea lounge, an 8th floor sky bar and a cigar room. It will also have a spa, fitness centre and a rooftop garden with its own pool.
New York-based Tihany Design will has been appointed to handle the hotel's interiors.
Allen Smith, the company's president and CEO, said that its first property at Jumeirah Beach Road had been "extremely well received". It is working with the same developer, Bright Start, at DIFC as it had with the first venue.
"We look forward to building on our reputation with our second hotel, at the epicentre of the financial district," he said.
Bright Start's CEO Shahab Lutfi said: "We believe our latest investment in the hospitality sector will further open up opportunities for continued growth and contribute to Dubai's status as a major luxury tourist destination."
