Nakheel signs contracts for two Hilton hotels
Both will operate under the DoubleTree by Hilton brand, and will consist a total of 704 new hotel rooms and serviced apartments
Dubai-based master developer, Nakheel, has inked two contracts with global hospitality operator, Hilton, to set up 704 new hotel rooms and serviced apartments in Dubai.
The two firms signed a management agreement for Nakheel’s 254-room property at Jumeirah Village Triangle and a Letter of Intent for a new hotel and serviced apartment complex at Deira Islands.
Both will operate under the DoubleTree by Hilton brand, Dubai Media Office reported.
The projects announced are part of Nakheel’s $1.36bn (AED5bn) hospitality expansion, bringing more than 5,800 new hotel rooms and serviced apartments through 18 projects to Dubai.
Two hotels are in operation, with the rest at various stages of construction and development.
Nakheel’s chairman, Ali Rashid Lootah said: “Our new partnership with Hilton reflects our commitment to collaborate with globally-renowned and reputed operators to deliver new and unique hospitality projects across Dubai.”
DoubleTree by Hilton Dubai Al Khail Avenue will be located at Jumeirah Village Triangle, and is already under construction with an expected opening date of 2019.
It will be directly linked to Al Khail Avenue, a new retail and dining centre by Nakheel Malls, also opening in 2019.
The upscale hotel will feature 254 rooms (including four suites), an all-day restaurant, a coffee shop, a lounge, an outdoor terrace, a pool deck, a gymnasium and a car park, as well as a leisure club.
The proposed DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Residences Deira Islands – a twin tower complex with 250 hotel rooms and 200 serviced apartments – is currently being designed, with anticipated delivery by 2020.
It will be part of Nakheel’s $1.36bn (AED5bn) Deira Boulevard community – a 22-tower residential, retail, and commercial hub in the Deira Islands waterfront city.
