Minor Group and Nakheel announce joint partnership for new Avani Ibn Battuta in Dubai

The Minor Hotel Group will be adding a new hotel in the Middle East to its portfolio, after signing a Letter of Intent for a management agreement.

In a joint partnership with Dubai-developer Nakheel, the Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai will be managed under the Avani Hotels and Resorts brand.

The 372-room hotel will be Nakheel’s second property ay Ibn Battuta, and its tenth property in Dubai. The hotel will offer direct access to the mall and links to the Dubai Metro, and guests can enjoy luxury facilities including a rooftop swimming pool, a coffee shop and an all-day dining restaurant.

"We continue to work with reputable international partners to bring new brands to Dubai, further enhancing and diversifying the emirate's hotel accommodation offering in line with the Government of Dubai's vision.”

Commented Ali Rashid Lootah, the Chairman of Nakheel, who continued:

“We are delighted to further develop our collaboration with Minor Hotel Group with an Avani hotel at our expanding Ibn Battuta Mall, which in itself is an increasingly popular destination for Dubai's growing number of tourists."

The Minor Hotel Group and Nakheel collaborated in September, 2015, announcing plans for a 500-room Avani beachfront resort at Deira Islands, Nakheel's 15.3 square-kilometre coastal city in Dubai.

"Following the recent announcement about our strategic partnership with Nakheel and the development of the UAE's first Avani at Deira Islands, we are thrilled that a Letter of Intent has already been signed for the second Avani in the UAE.”

Added Dillip Rajakarier, the CEO of Minor Hotel Group, Mr Rajakarier also explained:

“The location at Ibn Battuta Mall, one of the world's largest themed malls in one of the city's fastest growing areas, is perfect for guests who enjoy Avani's relaxed comfort and contemporary style. We are thrilled that our partnership with Nakheel is off to such a strong start and we look forward to a long and fruitful relationship."

Nakheel is currently adding a 4.7 million-square-foot expansion to the Ibn Battuta Mall, of which 766,000 square-foot will be dedicate to shopping, dining and entertainment.

The Minor Hotel Group operates 17,000 guest rooms in 145 hotels, resorts and serviced suites across 22 countries under the following brands: Anantara, Avani, Per Aquum, Oaks, Tivoli, Elewana, Four Seasons, Marriott, St Regis, Radisson Blu and Minor International.
