The property is one of 14 new hotels that are under development by Nakheel in Dubai.

Premier Inn Dubai Ibn Battuta opens to guests on Sheikh Zayed Road

A brand new hotel has opened its doors at Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai as part of a multi-million-dollar expansion programme. Premier Inn Dubai Ibn Battuta is linked directly to the popular shopping mall and the Ibn Battuta Metro station.

The property was developed by Dubai-based company Nakheel, and is one of two hotels that will open as under an $816.7m expansion project. Earlier this year, Nakheel opened its first hotel at the one-kilometre-long dragon-shaped Dragon Mart Chinese shopping centre.

Ali Rashid Lootah, the Chairman of Nakheel, stated:

"Our huge hotel expansion is rapidly gathering pace, and I am delighted to declare Premier Inn Dubai Ibn Battuta officially open and ready for business, this is one of 14 projects in our hotel pipeline that will bring more than 5,200 new hotel rooms to Dubai by 2020, which in turn will contribute significantly to realising the government’s tourism vision."

Premier Inn Dubai Ibn Battuta has 372 guest rooms, each with 24-hour free wireless Internet. Guests can enjoy signature features such as en-suite bathrooms, flat screen TVs, tea and coffee making facilities and a work desk. Facilities at the hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road include a swimming pool, whirlpool, fitness centre, restaurant, bar, and Costa Coffee shop. As well as being connected to one of the biggest shopping malls in the world, the hotel is close to Jumeirah Lake Towers, Jebel Ali Free Zone, and the Expo 2020 site, and it is 25 minutes from Dubai International Airport.

Nakheel’s new project includes 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 company’s second property at Dragon Mart will be operated by Premier Inn, and is scheduled to open to guests in 2018.

Ibn Battuta Mall is the world’s largest themed mall, and honours the Moroccan explorer Ibn Battuta. The complex has six courts that are themed by different parts of the world that the explorer travelled to: China, Andalusia, India, Egypt, Persia, and Tunisia. There are more than 275 stores, 50 restaurants and food outlets, and 21 cinema screens and an IMAX theatre. Dragon Mart is located on Al Awir Road and is the largest mall that sells Chinese products in the Middle East.

This complex hosts more than 3,950 shops in this unique mall, all selling various items including furniture, homeware, sportswear, toys, jewellery, and leather bags, and there’s a food court with numerous outlets selling authentic Chinese dishes.
