IHG – the InterContinental Hotels Group – has signed a management agreement to develop a new Holiday Inn hotel at the upcoming ‘Dubai Deira Islands’.
According to the company, 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.
“ 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,” said Pascal Gauvin, Managing Director, India, Middle East & Africa, IHG,
Expected to open in 2023, the 170-key hotel will be in close proximity to the city centre and airport.
Comprising four man-made islands, Dubai Deira Islands will be a mixed-use waterfront development featuring almost six million sqft of retail space, 3,000 apartments, hotel rooms, a mall, night souk, a large amphitheatre and a marina.
Once completed, the development is set to transform old Dubai into a hub for leisure, tourism and retail.
