Radisson signs first beach resort in Dubai

Radisson Hotel Group has announced the signing of Radisson Resort Dubai Palm Jumeirah, its first beach resort in Dubai and third Radisson property in the United Arab Emirates, bringing its UAE portfolio to 23 hotels in operation and under development.

Scheduled for completion in 2022, the 389-key hotel will feature five F&B outlets, including an all-day dining restaurant and bars overlooking the Arabian Gulf. Plans are also afoot for several swimming pools, a fully equipped gym and spa, and three meeting rooms.

“Radisson is a very compelling brand to all stakeholders, blending real estate efficiencies with guest relevance,” says Elie Younes, Executive Vice President and Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group. “We are excited to enter this new partnership and look forward to a successful journey with our partners based on trust and responsibility.”

Located on the Jumeirah shoreline just a 30-minute drive from Dubai International Airport, the property will cater for both leisure and business travellers, providing easy access to the city’s attractions as well as its leading media hub, Dubai Media City.

Silver Beach Hotel, a subsidiary of Bhatia Holdings, adds: “We are excited to partner with Radisson Hotel Group, one of the leading players in the hospitality industry. We were seeking a brand that is able to recognise and respond to the needs of the business and leisure clients coming to Dubai, while focusing on driving business from its established city portfolio into this prominent leisure destination on the Palm Jumeirah.”
