Posted: 30-Sep-16 16:00

New Holiday Inn set for Dubai Science Park

A new Holiday Inn is scheduled to open in Dubai Science Park in 2019, according to an announcement by well-known international hotelier InterContinental (IHG), which will operate the property.

One of many new hotels in the United Arab Emirates’ most popular enclave, it will contain 402 affordable rooms and suites geared towards both tourists and business travellers and there will also be five meeting rooms and a conference hall seating 600 guests. As well as an outdoor swimming pool and a gym, the Holiday Inn Dubai Science Park will feature four food and beverage outlets offering varied dining.

Located near the Arabian Ranches and Motor City, the new Holiday Inn is just fifteen minutes’ drive from one of the largest and busiest shopping malls in the city, Mall of the Emirates. The science park itself is the region’s first free-zone community offering facilities such as office and laboratory space, as well as residential units, with the aim of creating a vibrant ‘life sciences’ community.

IHG’s chief operating officer for India, the Middle East and Africa, Pascal Gauvin said:

“The signing reinforces our current footprint in the UAE, which includes 19 hotels open and another 11 hotels in our pipeline. The UAE is home to our second largest portfolio of hotels in the Middle East and we continue to expand our portfolio in the region.”

IHG has 78 hotels operating across five of the company’s brands in the Middle East region, including InterContinental Hotels & Resorts, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express and Staybridge Suites, with a further 24 in the development pipeline. Across the Middle East, there are 25 Holiday Inn properties open and an additional three properties due to open within the next three to five years.

The newly built hotel will operate under a management agreement with an affiliate of the Rolaco Group, which also owns InterContinental Dallas, InterContinental Geneva, Crowne Plaza Geneva and Crowne Plaza Zurich.

Rolaco Group board member Saud Abdulaziz Al Sulaiman said:

“Our Group is very happy to add this Holiday Inn to our almost 50 years’ cooperation with IHG. As Holiday Inn is recognised by millions around the world and appeals to a wide range of guests, we’re confident the hotel will become a key pillar of the Life Sciences community being created in the city. We look forward to opening the doors of Holiday Inn Dubai Science Park and welcoming business and leisure guests to this new area of Dubai.”
