Developer plans to add 670 rooms across new hotels at Dragon City and Ibn Battuta Mall
Nakheel has released construction tenders for two hotel projects comprising a total of 670 rooms, the Dubai developer said on Sunday.
Nakheel plans to build a 15-storey, 375-room hotel at Dubai’s Ibn Battuta Mall, where a 300,000 sq ft extension opened in May.
The 280,000 sq ft establishment at Ibn Battuta, located by the Dubai Metro entrance, will have an all-day restaurant, gym and pool deck, Nakheel said.
It has also released a tender for a 295-room, 180,000 sq ft hotel at Dragon City, home of the Dragon Mart mall, as reported by MEConstructionNews.com last week.
The 3-star hotels are due for completion in 2017, Nakheel said.
They will complement other hotels at Nakheel’s mall developments, namely a 251-room Accor-operated ibis Styles hotel at Dragon Mart 2, which opened in February, and the 372-room Premier Inn at Ibn Battuta, which is set to open in the fourth quarter of this year
Nakheel also has hotels under development at Palm Jumeirah and Deira Islands, with more in the pipeline, it said in a statement.
