US-based MGM resort International is building two iconic Las Vegas hotels in Dubai, bringing the MGM and Bellagio brands to the Middle East for the first time.

As part of a deal with Dubai-based Wasl Hospitality, part of Wasl Asset Management Group, the hotel operator will advise on and manage the beachfront development, which will feature an MGM Hotel, MGM Residences and a Bellagio Hotel on a 26-acre space, Hotelier Middle East reported.

MGM Resorts president Bill Hornbuckle, said: "This marks the first time we will offer multiple MGM luxury brands at a prime beachfront location.”

The project will feature 1,000 rooms and 10 villas and will occupy the longest stretch of waterfront ever developed in Dubai. It will be located near the Burj Al Arab, initial reports said.

Construction on the project will take nine months to mobilisation and about three years to build, with a probable opening date set for 2021.

Hornbuckle added that the resort will also include a diving club, dubbed The Cavern, that will be about 7,000-8,000 metres deep, as well as a dive pool for snorkelling.
