Minor Hotels to open AVANI Deira Dubai Hotel in July

Minor Hotels will be taking over the management of the Mövenpick Hotel Deira in Dubai from 1st July, 2016. The hotel group signed an agreement with Bin Sulayem Investments, the parent company of the hotel. The 216-room property will be turned into the AVANI Deira Dubai Hotel, marking the debut of the AVANI Hotels and Resorts brand in the Middle East.

Robert Kunkler, the Chief Operating Officer of Minor Hotels declared:

"This key acquisition to our portfolio allows Minor Hotels to take a strategic foothold in the Middle East for our fast expanding AVANI Hotels & Resorts brand in what is a vitally important market. AVANI Deira Dubai Hotel will have the freedom to establish and maintain its individuality and distinct character while benefitting from being part of the Minor Hotels portfolio."

Located in the oldest part of Dubai, north of the Dubai Creek, Deira is rich in culture and close to an array of attractions. Holidaymakers can visit the nearby shopping malls such as the Reef Mall, and the Deira City Centre mall, or they can pick up a handcrafted souvenir as they soak up the aromas and atmosphere while walking around the nearby Gold Souk, Perfume Souk, and Spice Souk.

Guests will have easy access to the rest of Dubai via the nearby Dubai Metro that will take them to Jumeirah Beach, Downtown Dubai, and Dubai Marina, and Dubai International Airport is just four kilometres away from the hotel.

AVANI Deira Dubai Hotel has upscale facilities including an outdoor swimming pool, a modern fitness centre, two gourmet restaurants and meeting facilities.

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. The Minor Hotel Group currently operates nine hotels in the United Arab Emirates under its Anantara, PER AQUUM and Oaks brands.

The AVANI Hotels & Resorts brand was established in 2011 and has 13 hotels and resorts in Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, the Seychelles, Thailand, Mozambique, Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia and Zambia.

Earlier this year, Minor Hotels announced it will also be opening a new hotel with the development company Nakheel. The Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai will also be operated under the AVANI Hotels and Resorts brand.
