Singapore-based hotel operator brings Tin Hotels brand to Dubai

Posted: 17-Sep-16 09:42

A Singapore hotel operator has plans to develop hundreds of additional hotel rooms in Dubai under the Tin Hotels brand. The announcement translates to more affordable choices in midscale lodging, giving those on holiday or on business a new alternative in hotel rooms within one of the UAE's most visited cities.

Singapore-based hotel operator brings Tin Hotels brand to Dubai

Best known for its incredible luxury properties including The Chedi, an elegantly designed seaside resort in Muscat, Singapore-based General Hotel Management (GHM) is now eyeing Dubai to launch its latest hotel brand. As recently published in the business section of The National, GHM has partnered with Van de Bunt Partners, an investment and hotel development company in Dubai, to present their Tin Hotels brand.

Writer Sananda Sahoo explains that the Singapore company is looking at developing two Dubai properties plus another in Muscat. While an exact location has not been released the company is revealing that it is looking at sites in the Dubai Marina and downtown.

The properties would likely each include 200 to 250 guest rooms and be marketed toward the upper-midscale traveller. Typically this calls for three-star hotels. While recently Dubai boasted 27 upper-midscale hotel properties they make up a small percentage of the city’s total number of hotel rooms.

In comparing July 2016 to the previous year and month, construction projects were up nearly 17-percent, with a total of 67 projects most recently underway. Among the future projects is the three-star Novotel, slated to open in 2018 by Action Hotels. As well, Rove Hotel, Emaar’s first midscale hotel in Dubai, opened in the downtown area this past May.

They’ll join the new properties planned by GHM. Company senior vice president for sales and marketing Clement Koh maintains the launch of a new hotel brand solidifies the continued importance of the region to its various hotel brands.

“The UAE remains one of our most important growth market(s), not just for Tin Hotels but also for our other core brands such as The Chedi and Chedi Club.”

The Chedi brand includes the previously mentioned luxury property in Muscat, along with others in Indonesia, Vietnam and Switzerland. Currently GHM maintains four hotels with another 11 under development. Two of those are in Sharjah, with one set to open next year. Meanwhile, the first Tin Hotels branded properties in Dubai and Muscat should open sometime in 2019.

The most populated city in the UAE, Dubai routinely draws in visitors with its towering skyscrapers, luxury resorts, upscale shopping and blend of old and modern attractions. Now with the planned addition of more mid-scale hotel properties the region is sure to become more attractive to an even larger segment of visitors in the near future.
