FIRST LOOK: New movie-themed hotel in Deira

Aloft City Centre Deira has its own outdoor cinema


Movie buffs, listen up. There’s a brand-new hotel coming to town, and it’s cinema-themed.

Time Out Dubai has had a sneak peek behind the scenes at Aloft City Centre Deira, which is due to open on Friday June 1.

The trendy hotel – which is part of the tech-forward, modern hotel chain that is part of Marriott International – boasts a unique film theme.

The hotel is directly connected to the City Centre Deira shopping centre, which has more than 100 shops and a VOX Cinema Multiplex.

Aloft City Centre boasts four restaurants, five meeting rooms and even a licensed VOX Cinemas outdoor screen, complete with casual seating and cinema snacks. So you can sit back and chill with some popcorn and movie before you retire to your hotel room.

Restaurants include RE: FUEL lobby lounge, W XYZ Bar & Lounge and Han Shi Fu – a modern Chinese restaurant. There’s also an infinity pool, pool tables and the promise of live music thanks to the Live At Aloft series.

It’s third of the popular hotel chain to open in the city this year.

Aloft The Palm opened in January, boasting sea views and super-cool Mexican restaurant, while and Aloft Me’aisam in Production City opened in March.

We'll be booking in for the latest release.
