HOTELIER MIDDLE EAST
A new 750-room hospitality concept – Dubai’s first all-inclusive resort – by master developer Nakheel and Spain’s Riu Hotels & Resorts has moved forward. The companies met in Dubai this week to discuss the design and construction of the planned project, which will be located at Deira Islands, Nakheel’s new 15.3 square kilometre waterfront city in Dubai. Under the partnership, announced in May, Nakheel and Riu plan to create one of Dubai’s biggest resorts in terms of rooms, and the first RIU resort in the Middle East. The company already has 45,000 rooms across more than 100 hotels in 19 countries.
