Kleindienst's Dubai resort cluster project set for Q4 completion

DUBAI, August 10, 2020

Leading developer Kleindienst Group said construction is in full swing on the Côte d’Azur, a cluster of four resorts coming up within Phase One of its $5-billion leisure tourism project, Heart of Europe, and is due for completion in the fourth quarter. 
The Heart of Europe is a sustainable island destination in Dubai comprising six islands, highly differentiated 15 hotels and resorts, 4,000 holiday homes, boutique hotel suites, in addition to the iconic Floating Seahorse Villas, white sandy beaches, lush landscapes and views of the Dubai skyline, and the word’s first climate controlled rainy street and snow plaza as well as rare and authentic entertainment options, in Maldives-like settings.
Located 4 km offshore Jumeirah coast line on the Arabian Gulf, The Heart of Europe is getting ready to welcome tourists in the fourth quarter of 2020, said Kleindienst Group in its statement.
The overall construction on the Heart of Europe Island project is on fast track, defying the current industry trend of slowing down, as developer Kleindienst Group envisions a massive influx of tourists in the fourth quarter of the year, once the UAE becomes a Covid-19-free country.
Côte d’Azur will add 893 keys and the facility to be ready for local, regional and international tourists in the fourth quarter. 
According to Kleindienst, The Heart of Europe will add around 1,500 units in its Phase One development offering new attractions for local and international visitors.
Being built on a plot of 43,442 sq m, Côte d’Azur comprises four boutique hotels – Monaco, Nice, Cannes and St Tropez – each named after the most famous and picturesque resort cities along the French Riviera and offering distinct European hospitality and culture in Dubai. 
The elevations of Côte d’Azur that will offer a wide variety of European hospitality at the Heart of Europe, have been completed, it stated.
Following this, construction workers are now putting together walls, doors and windows that will trigger the finishing, painting and interiors works. 
Facades are being painted in Monaco and Nice in vibrant colour schemes, a combination of various hues of red and green, it added.
Contractors have also completed the topping out of St Tropez, the fourth hotel of the resort cluster.
Giving a construction update, Chairman Josef Kleindienst said: "The completion of the elevation works and topping out of the four hotels mark an important milestone in the development of the Heart of Europe Island and our strong commitment to deliver the project by the end of the year, despite the current economic slowdown caused by the Covid-19 pandemic." 
When complete, Côte d’Azur will offer 796 standard suites, four Super Deluxe suites, 61 Suite rooms and 32 Star suites. The five-star beachfront resort incorporates key features of the French Riviera’s most impressive architecture, design and lifestyle.
The four distinct hotels will offer around 220 keys each with beach access and dramatic views over the extraordinary swimming pool and/or the sea, stated the developer.
Once open, Côte d’Azur will offer European hospitality in Dubai and help attract lots of domestic and foreign tourists to the island destination, it added.
 Kleindienst said the Côte d’Azur will host year-round European festivities that will attract more tourists to the Heart of Europe islands and boost tourism industry in Dubai
The resort will offer an exceptional array of indoor and outdoor facilities such as entertainment areas and games room (billiards, table tennis, bowling hall), fitness and gym facilities, spas, beach cabanas and six Mediterranean dining options in addition to diving and snorkeling facilities.
Côte d'Azur is also strategically located next to the climate-controlled Rainy Street covering 1 km, where it will rain on command, whilst cooling down and maintaining an ambient temperature of 27 degrees Celsius as well as 5 km per hour winds and 60 per cent humidity, in order to mirror the summer climate in southern Europe, making it a major tourist attraction when Phase One of the project opens later this year.
The Rainy Street will have a boulevard setting filled with street cafés, casual dining restaurants, retail outlets, fashion and souvenir shops. It will also host as many as 51 year-round European festivals that will enthrall local and international tourists.
The construction of two key sustainable facilities is also under way at Côte d'Azur adding to the resort’s tremendous construction progress of the last 12 months.
Côte d'Azur resort will also feature an extraordinary sustainable swimming pool measuring a record 12,000 square metres. The swimming pool will connect the four hotels of the resort and will be fully sustainable with fresh water production, recycling and heating generated by solar panels and a zero discharge policy.
A Rain Forest will be planted with more than 100 types of exotic plants and palm trees right next to Monaco hotel and the Rainy Street. The forest will also have a sustainable irrigation system with recycled water and rain will fall on command to create a refreshing micro-climate. The Rain Forest will deliver a new sustainable entertainment and educational experience in Dubai.
“Once open, guests will enjoy year-round European festivities, the Rainy Street, the record swimming pool and the rain forest that will bring the European ambience closer to the Heart of Dubai, especially during the summer months,” remarked Kleindienst.
"All these sustainable innovations, we believe, will reposition Dubai as the most preferred tourism destination in the world and the Heart of Europe will be at the heart of all these attractions," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
