IHG signs new Holiday Inn on Dubai Deira Islands

DUBAI, July 23, 2019

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, has signed a management agreement for a new Holiday Inn hotel at the upcoming ‘Dubai Deira Islands’.

The signing is aligned with IHG’s strategy to increase its midscale offering in the Middle East and cater to the diverse profiles of guests visiting the region.

Expected to open in 2023, the 170-key hotel will be in close proximity to the city centre (15-minute drive) and airport (10-minute drive). Comprising four man-made islands, Dubai Deira Islands will be a mixed-use waterfront development featuring almost six million-sq-ft of retail space, 3,000 apartments, hotel rooms, a mall, night suq, a large amphitheatre and a marina. Once completed, the development is set to transform old Dubai into a hub for leisure, tourism and retail.

Ideal for business and leisure travellers, Holiday Inn Dubai Deira Islands will feature well-appointed guest rooms, facilities including a business centre, three meeting rooms (432 sq m in total) as well as a state-of-the-art gymnasium and outdoor pool for guests to relax and rejuvenate. Furthermore, guests will have two dining options offering an excellent selection of food and beverages.

Pascal Gauvin, managing director, India, Middle East & Africa, IHG, said: “As the Middle East continues to develop as a business hub and tourist destination, we are committed to accelerating our growth and diversifying our offering to cater to the needs of varied guest profiles visiting the region. This is the sixth signing for our midscale portfolio in the Middle East, this year, and we are very pleased with the strong progress we are making in this segment. We are excited about this new venture and look forward to welcoming guests to this highly anticipated location in 2023.”

Partnering with IHG for Holiday Inn Dubai Deira Islands, Ravi Sankar said: “IHG is a trusted brand with a long-standing history in the Middle East and we are proud to partner with them to open Holiday Inn Dubai Deira Islands. I am confident that the strategic location combined with IHG’s signature hospitality, will successfully cater to the needs of the modern business and leisure traveller.”

IHG currently operates 92 hotels across seven brands in the Middle East, including InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Staybridge Suites, voco and Six Senses Hotels Resorts with a further 38 in the development pipeline due to open within the next three to five years. - TradeArabia News Service
