Nakheel and RIU partner to create resort in Dubai
¨Under this new partnership, Nakheel will introduce one of the world’s biggest, most respected names in hospitality and an entirely new concept in hotel accommodations to Dubai,¨ Nakheel Chairman Ali Rashid Lootah said. ¨This is a major milestone for our growing hospitality business and a significant step towards creating a new range of affordable, family resort-style hotel accommodation in the emirate, in line with the government of Dubai’s tourism vision for 2021.”
Nakheel and RIU plan to develop a four-star all-inclusive concept, the first of such for Dubai. The resort will be close to a range of forthcoming attractions at Deira Islands, including Nakheel’s Deira Mall and Deira Islands Night Souk.
¨It is an honor for RIU Hotels & Resorts to partner with Nakheel, one of the world’s largest real estate developers and the creator of the most important land reformation projects in Dubai,¨ RIU owner and CEO Luis Riu said. ¨This project is our golden opportunity to bring the RIU brand to the Middle East and, through our partnership with Nakheel, to deliver a new and unique hospitality offering in Dubai.”
