New Moevenpick Hotel in 'Old Dubai' Deira
New Hotel in 'Old Dubai' Deira gets first international five-star hotel in a decade
The upscale hotel management company, Moevenpick Hotels & Resorts opened its fourth hotel in the United Arab Emirates this month, the Moevenpick Hotel Deira, bringing its portfolio to a total of 69 properties in key international destinations.
The 216-room hotel - Deira's first international five-star property for more than ten years, is situated in the commercial district on the north side of Dubai Creek.
The hotel is less than three minutes' walk from a Metro station and fifteen minutes by car from Dubai International Airport, whilst offering easy access to many of Dubai's traditional landmarks such the Spice and Gold Souqs, as well as six golf courses all less than 25 minutes away.
Michael Nugent, the hotel's general manager said the property is filling a demand for affordable upscale accommodation in Deira from business executives, as well as destination travellers and inquisitive shoppers.
"While Dubai has been on a building boom, Deira's five-star hospitality sector has been somewhat stagnant and we mean to bring in new energy," he said.
Nugent noted that the hotel is designed as a 'new-era heritage property in the city offering the latest in efficiency and comfort'. The hotel incorporates an executive floor as well as 25 suites.
For private events, the hotel is thoughtfully equipped with seven dedicated rooms for corporate meetings and social functions for up to 90 guests - all with natural daylight.
Meanwhile, instant Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel's public areas, backed up by around-the-clock support from the Business Services team.
The Moevenpick Hotel Deira offers three dining options. Jigsaw features a la carte and a buffet selection 'with a difference'. Wok In's intention is to represent the spirit of the Far East with interactive cooking taking place 'centre stage' in the contemporary Asian restaurant. Wok In Bar has its sights set on being a sought-after local rendezvous and features live entertainment.
Fitness is not forgotten and the hotel has a rooftop pool and a well-equipped gym. Guests also enjoy access to the private beach and facilities at the Oceana Beach Club on The Palm Jumeirah, less than 25 minutes away by complimentary hotel shuttle.
The Moevenpick Hotel Deira is one of four projects in Dubai from Moevenpick Hotels & Resorts and real estate developer, Seven Tides, alongside the 396-room Ibn Battuta Gate.
