The Mövenpick Hotel & Apartments in Dubai, UAE has been sold to investment group Kingdom Hotel Investments for $95 million, marking the first open market hotel transaction to have taken place in the emirate, said real estate services firm JLL Hotels & Hospitality.

Strategically located between Dubai International Airport and Downtown Burj Khalifa, the property is situated just a few minutes from the major retail and business precincts of Dubai and features 255 guestrooms and suites, 57 apartments, spacious public areas, a range of food and beverage outlets, as well as meeting and function space, a statement said.
