World-famous hotel to make Middle East debut, partnering with Omniyat
Get ready for one of the most luxurious and premium hotels to make its mark on Dubai, because the Dorchester Collection, one of the world’s most famous hotels, is coming to town.
Omniyat will be bringing the historical brand to the banks of The Dubai Water Canal. The hotel will be a full five-star resort, plus luxury residences, managed by the Dorchester Collection, and based at Marasi – which is also where you’ll find Dubai’s stunning water villas. We’re yet to know the exact location, though, as more information is coming soon.
The announcement sees Dubai join the most upmarket addresses, including London’s Park Lane as well as Paris, Beverly Hills and Rome as established locations for the Dorchester group. Omniyat’s CEO, Mahdi Amjad, says the partnership is a strong statement for both companies operating in the “ultra-premium” market.
“We aim for authenticity through our projects that add to Dubai’s skyline and we only partner with the world’s most established brands that share our passion and excitement for creating unique, ultra-luxury developments,” said Mahdi. “We want to fuel unforgettable experiences through our projects and we couldn’t have found a more suitable partner than Dorchester Collection.”
While few details have been confirmed at this stage, there are two things to consider. Firstly, a full launch event for the brand and the hotel is pencilled in for March, so in just a few weeks we’ll know an awful lot more about what lies in store. Secondly, Omniyat says the agreement with Dorchester is “a long-term agreement that will be rolled out in the coming years”.
This will definitely be one to keep an eye on. For more information, visit www.omniyat.com.
