Dubai Parks and Resorts has announced the first retailers who will join the new dining, retail and entertainment destination which is set to open in October 2016. 

Riverland Dubai is a themed retail, dining, and entertainment waterfront district which will be the entry point to Dubai Parks and Resorts’ theme parks, as well as being a destination in its own.

Having announced the start of leasing in May 2015, Riverland Dubai will offer around 20,438 sqm of dining and retail space for visitors to enjoy, based around a one km long waterfront.

The team have worked successfully to attract new concepts to Dubai such as America’s Famous Dave’s barbeque and Mr Greek as well as South Africa’s Galito’s Flame Grilled Chicken. The water-side restaurants will also serve up an extensive list of other global food options including Tortilla (Mexican), Simit Sarayi (Turkish), 800 Degrees Pizza (Italian) and many more.

The food and beverage options will also include the UAE establishments; Irish Village, the continental restaurant; Big Chefs and modern Emirati restaurant Milas. 

Raed Kajoor Al Nuaimi, CEO of Dubai Parks and Resorts said; “All visitors to Dubai Parks and Resorts will pass through Riverland Dubai so we are pleased to welcome so many new and exciting brands that will be part of our offering. In building this destination we have been inspired by many different cultures and countries and so it is important that the brands chosen also represent this and appeal to the many different nationalities, tastes and requirements of our guests."

Klaus Assmann, vice president of retail and hospitality adds; “We started the leasing process of the 50-plus outlets available in May and in less than four months almost 50% of the units have been leased by great brands that we know our guests will really love. We look forward to welcoming them and working with them to ensure every visitor to Dubai Parks and Resorts will Experience Amazing from the moment they enter the destination”.

Dubai Parks and Resorts is set to be the region’s largest integrated theme park destination and Riverland Dubai will be at its heart as both the main entrance to the resort and also a connecting point between all three theme parks - motiongate Dubai, Bollywood Parks Dubai, Legoland Dubai, Legoland Water Park and the Lapita Hotel, a Polynesian-themed hotel catering to families.
