Minor Hotel Group has announced that it will not be going ahead with the construction of its Avani Deira Island Resort.

Originally scheduled to debut the hotel in 2015, Minor Group has revealed that it will no longer be going ahead with the project,  according to HotelierMiddleEast.com. 

The hotel operator initially had a joint venture deal with Nakheel to build a 500-room Avani beachfront resort at the developer’s Deira Islands project. 

Called Avani Deira, this would have been the first Avani branded hotel in the Middle East.

Nakheel has however partnered with the hotel operator on another project – the 372-room Avani Ibn Batuta Mall, which is due for completion in 2019.
