DUBAI, UAE, May 1, 2016 (hospitalitybusinessnews.com) — Leading Dubai-based property developer’s first hotel property, managed by Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, has marked its official opening
Wyndham Dubai Marina, the first dedicated hotel development from leading Dubai-based property developer, The First Group, celebrated its grand opening on Wednesday, 27th April.
The four-star deluxe Wyndham Dubai Marina, which is managed by Wyndham Hotels & Resorts – the world’s largest hotel management firm – marks a major milestone for The First Group, which has built its reputation on developing high-quality serviced apartments and aparthotels in Dubai.
Wyndham Dubai Marina also marks a significant addition to the thriving Marina district.
The 32-storey, 486-room property is situated in a prime location offering stunning views of the Gulf and Dubai Marina, one of Dubai’s most exciting districts, as well as nearby Bluewater Island, which will soon be home to the world’s largest Ferris wheel, Dubai Eye.
It is guaranteed to prove popular with business and leisure guests alike, being located within walking distance of the Marina’s major attractions, amenities and transportation links including Dubai Metro and Tram services.
Wyndham Dubai Marina boasts an extensive range of dining options, consisting of the Range Grill Restaurant & Bar, Essence all-day dining outlet, Chillz Pool Bar and Café Azur Lobby Lounge.
Leisure facilities include a spa, gym and swimming pool, while business guests are well-catered for thanks to the hotel’s extensive meetings and conference facilities.
The premium Wyndham Club Lounge provides stunning views overlooking the Palm Jumeirah and Arabian Gulf.
Leisure guests can also take advantage of the hotel’s safari and car hire facilities, as well as its souvenir store offering a range of gifts and mementos from their visit to Dubai.
The First Group previously marked the handover of the four-star hotel with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in February, which attracted a star-studded line-up headlined by Saudi football legend and The First Group brand ambassador Majed Abdullah.
Abdullah, who was hailed Asia’s ‘player of the century’ and was known as the Arabian Jewel during his career, is among a number of high-profile investors with The First Group.
“The grand opening of Wyndham Dubai Marina marks a major milestone for The First Group and is a significant development for the Marina district,” said Danny Lubert, the company’s co-founder and joint chairman.
“In partnership with Wyndham Hotel Group, we will set new standards for affordable luxury, catering to business and leisure guests alike. Given Wyndham Hotel Group’s vast global experience in hotel management, we are supremely confident Wyndham Dubai Marina will set a new benchmark for hospitality service in Dubai.”
The grand opening of the property marks the debut of the Wyndham brand in the UAE. Its parent, Wyndham Hotel Group, which manages more than 7,800 properties in 72 countries worldwide, is one of the hospitality industry’s most respected operators.
