The hours of queuing up to deposit luggage or await the immigration check could soon be over for good in Dubai airports as they replace these procedures with new technological initiatives. An upcoming project in Dubai will soon allow travellers to undergo routine proceedings through their smart phones and head straight to the boarding gates.
InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has announced it will open a new hotel in Dubai after signing a management agreement with Kingston Holdings International Limited. The hotel group will launch the Holiday Inn & Suites in Dubai Business Bay in 2021, and it will have 350 guest rooms and suites, two restaurants, a large ballroom, and a floor dedicated to meeting rooms.
The world-famous Cirque du Soleil will grace Dubai with its presence from 4th to 17th January next year. The prestigious entertainment company will be putting on an Avatar-themed show with spectacular stunts and eye-popping scenery that tells the story of humanity living in harmony with its surroundings.
Dubai continues to be one of the most innovative cities in the world. Costa's Jumeirah Beach Drive-Thru ran a test of the Coffee-Copter, a drone that delivers iced coffee drinks to patrons on Kite Beach. The test was for a limited time and only for cold drinks, and there is no hard date when a permanent drone delivery service might be available, but given Dubai's record for innovation, it will likely be sooner rather than later.
The Dubai-based property developer Nakheel has revealed that it is teaming up with the Thai hotel group Centara Hotels and Resorts to open a new 600-room beachfront resort and waterpark on the Deira Islands in Dubai in 2020. The joint venture will bring a luxury family-friendly resort to the new waterfront city, and it will mark Centara’s debut in the United Arab Emirates.
