The Emaar Hospitality Group has announced that it will open a brand new hotel in Dubai, the Vida Dubai Mall. The property will be directly linked to the Dubai Mall and it will offer direct views of the soaring Burj Khalifa. The hotel is a two-tower development which has 195 guest rooms and suites and 380 serviced residences in one 55-storey tower, and the other tower will be home to another 234 serviced apartments.
As Dubai seeks to promote its tourism industry, marine activities are also taken into account. The Dubai Maritime Domestic & Leisure Working Group recently held a workshop for its members that aim to develop potential locations and implement the best practices to provide visitors with underwater fun.
An innovative, fast and efficient transport mean could soon become available in the UAE as Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority looks into introducing pilotless flying taxis. The procedures to test these driverless flying cars should take place by the end of the year, as the UAE puts together a team of specialists working to evaluate all safety issues.
Raffles Dubai has appointed Wolfgang Wagenleitner as the new Executive Pastry Chef of the luxury hotel. The Austrian national comes straight from The Meydan Hotel in Dubai where he was the Executive Pastry Chef for the past two years. He brings more than 25 years of culinary experience to his new role which will oversee the dessert and bakery operations.
After the project to create the first underwater home began in 2015, today the Kleindienst Group continue developing upgraded underwater homes, their Signature Edition line. These new luxury homes are an architecture marvel that offer a new amazing underwater experience for its inhabitants.
