Dubai welcomes Mövenpick Hotel Deira

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has debuted the 216-room Mövenpick Hotel Deira in Dubai, owned by Mövenpick Holding and the Kingdom Group.

According to the hotel's general manager, Michael Nugent, the hotel will offer affordable, upscale accommodation largely for business executives. The hotel is located at the heart of Old Dubai's early commercial district on the north side of the city's arterial waterway, Dubai Creek.

"While the greater Dubai has been on a building boom, Deira's hospitality sector has been somewhat stagnant and we mean to fill this void by bringing in some new blood," said Nugent. "It is through the Creek that Dubai is able to attribute its success as the commercial hub of the United Arab Emirates and much of early Dubai's infrastructure grew up on the banks of the Creek."

The new hotel will offer two restaurants, Jigsaw, an all-day dining restaurant providing a selection of international cuisine and themed buffets, as well as Wok In Restaurant & Bar, which will feature a contemporary take on Asian fast food. Guests can also take advantage of the rootop pool, spa, and fitness center as well as varying meeting facilities for banquets or conferences.

The Mövenpick Hotel Deira is a Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts property in partnership with Seven Tides.Source
