Currently under development, the Wyndham Dubai Marina is expected to open within the next three years with 497 guest rooms including 251 luxurious suites.
The hotel will also comprise nearly 6,800 square feet of food and beverage outlets, including all-day-dining and speciality restaurants, as well as a coffee shop, an executive lounge and a bar.
Alongside meetings and conference space, the hotel will also offer almost 2,500 square feet of spa and leisure facilities including a gym and outdoor pool with a pool bar.
“We’re very excited to be bringing our namesake Wyndham Hotels and Resorts brand to Dubai, following its successful introduction to the region through the spectacular Wyndham Grand Regency Doha,” said Rui Barros, senior vice president and managing director Europe, Middle East and Africa, Wyndham Hotel Group.
“I have no doubt that Wyndham Dubai Marina will be another superb addition to the brand, which we are already growing in key cities throughout the Middle East,” Rui added.
In addition to the Wyndham Grand Regency Doha, which opened in 2011, Wyndham Hotel Group has already announced the development of two Wyndham Hotels and Resorts properties in the Middle East.
The Wyndham Grand Manama and Wyndham Grand Riyadh are both anticipated to open by the end of next summer. This will further strengthen the hotel group’s diverse portfolio throughout the Middle East which already consists of more than 30 hotels and over 6,100 rooms ranging from economy right through to upper-upscale.
“The First Group is proud to be collaborating with such a renowned name in the global hotel industry on one of our most prestigious hotel developments to date,” commented Danny Lubert, co-founder and joint chairman of The First Group. “We are excited to be partnering with Wyndham Hotel Group on the first Wyndham Hotels and Resorts property in the U.A.E,” he added.
“We are delighted to have Wyndham Hotel Group on board and are certain this partnership will be a huge success,” agreed Gary Shepherd, co-founder and joint chairman of The First Group. “Wyndham Dubai Marina adds to our dynamic portfolio of hotel projects across the U.A.E. and Africa and we look forward to watching this stunning project take shape,” he added.
The Wyndham Hotels and Resorts brand is also experiencing strong growth outside of the Middle East. On March 01, 2013 alone, Wyndham Hotel Group added eight hotels under the Wyndham Hotels and Resorts flag in major markets across the U.S. through a deal with FelCor Lodging Trust, Inc. as well as opening 11 Wyndham Hotels and Resorts properties across Germany as part of a strategic partnership with Grand City Hotels, with seven more hotels still set to join the brand.
This partnership will see a total of 43 hotels and more than 5,400 rooms rebranded under Wyndham Hotel Group flags in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands over the next two years.
