Corporate partnership to benefit hotel guests and golf club members

The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina has already proved its facilities are well above par, even before opening, following the signing of an official preferred hotel partnership with The Els Club at Dubai Sports City.

The five-star resort has been named as one of a select number of Official Corporate Partners and the only Official Hotel for the world-class golf club, designed by US Open and British Open winner Ernie Els.

The strategic agreement will provide a host of benefits to keen golfers staying at The Westin as well as members, corporate golf attendees and daily fee players at The Els Club course.

“We are delighted to enter into partnership with The Els Club. The Westin brand is synonymous with effortless style and gracious attitude, two key tenets that are also found on the fairways,” said Michael Scully, Complex General Manager, Le Meridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina and The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina.

“Our partnership with the exclusive Els Club will enable us to offer our guests another lifestyle enhancing service, along with our sailing academy, water sports centre, marina and spa. The Westin is all about enjoying the good life, and through The Els Club we are able to offer another leisure classic to our discerning guests.”

"The Els Club is dedicated to provide exceptional playing surfaces and service offerings to our Founding Members and visiting guests. We look forward to working closely with The Westin to forge a long-term mutually beneficial partnership. It's certainly the perfect strategic alliance for our facility", Darren King - Sales and Marketing Manager, The Els Club, Dubai Sports City

The new Corporate Partnership will see The Westin as title sponsor for three member monthly medal events and three member stableford events.

Benefits for hotel guests will include a preferential booking window for tee time reservations as well as an exclusive rate.

Members of The Els Club will also benefit, with The Westin offering them a discount on food and beverage sales, spa treatments and room rates.

Quarterly member events for The Els Club will also be held at The Westin. The hotel boasts a wide variety of restaurants and bars, as well as offering large landscaped gardens for al fresco events.

“Already our two properties, the Le Meridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina and The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina are known as the social hub of Jumeirah. Our partnership with The Els Club, and our hosting of their social gatherings, will further underscore our position as the venue of choice for all types of socialising,” said Saeed Mohamed Ahmad Hareb, Managing Director of the Dubai International Marine Club (DIMC) and owner’s representative for Le Meridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina and The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina.

Stretching 7,538 yards with four sets of tees allowing players a selection of differing lengths from which to play, The Els Club sets a new benchmark for golf in Dubai. The course offers players a challenging round accompanied by first-class facilities.

Opening early this summer, The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina will offer the full array of Westin's signature products, services and amenities including The Heavenly Bed®, WestinWORKOUT Gym®, Kids Club®, Express Checkout®, and the new Sensory Welcome®, comprising white tea scents, muted music, soft lighting and botanical products.

The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina will feature 294 rooms, including 216 deluxe rooms, 52 Westin Executive rooms, and 24 suites, in addition to a spa, a health club, four bars and four themed restaurants. The resort is located on a stunning 1,200 metre private shoreline and will feature a 238-berth marina, a 150 metre pool with a lap pool and children’s shaded pool, a water sports centre, a sailing academy and facilities for deep sea fishing and boat chartering.
