Nakheel unveils hotel at Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai
Premier Inn Hotels will manage the 372-key property, which is part of Ibn Battuta Mall's ongoing $816.7m growth plans
A hotel developed as part of Ibn Battuta Mall's expansion plans was recently inaugurated in Dubai.
The facility is one of two being developed by Nakheel as part of the $816.7m (AED3bn) expansion programme.
Premier Inn Hotels will manage the 372-key property, which is part of Ibn Battuta Mall's ongoing $190.5m (AED700m) growth plans.
Nakheel chairman Ali Rashid Lootah and Premier Inn Hotels managing director Adam Nicholls unveiled the property in Dubai.
Nakheel’s first hotel at Dragon Mart opened earlier this year, Dubai Media Office reported.
Premier Inn Dubai Ibn Battuta is directly connected to both the mall and the Ibn Battuta Metro station.
Remarking at the launch, Lootah said: "Our huge hotel expansion is rapidly gathering pace, and I am delighted to declare Premier Inn Dubai Ibn Battuta officially open and ready for business.
"This is one of 14 projects in our hotel pipeline that will bring more than 5,200 new hotel rooms to Dubai by 2020, which in turn will contribute significantly to realising the government’s tourism vision."
Premier Inn is also the operating partner for Nakheel’s second hotel at Dragon Mart, due to open in 2018.
