Occidental IMPZ Dubai opens, marking brand’s debut in the Middle East

The Barcelo Hotel Group has announced the opening of its first Occidental hotel in the Middle East. The Spanish hotel group launched the Occidental IMPZ Dubai last week.

Located close to the Dubai Expo 2020 site in the International Media Production Zone (IMPZ), the four-star hotel has 239 guest rooms and suites across two towers. The property will also be a meeting and conference hub for the upcoming Expo 2020, which is expected to attract millions of global visitors.

“This hotel is committed to delivering the highest standards of MICE facilities with each detail meticulously thought out to ensure we become the go-to hotel for Expo 2020.”

Explained Goulam Amarsy, CEO of Barcelo Hotel Group - Gulf, the partner of the Barcelo Hotel Group in the Middle East.

The hotel has a conference and events centre with four meeting rooms and a huge ballroom filled with natural light. There is also a multifunctional space on the ground floor of the hotel, which can be used to host hospitality events. The property also has a dedicated library and workspace for business travellers and residents.

Facilities at Occidental IMPZ Dubai include a large rooftop swimming pool and pool bar where guests can enjoy 360-degree city views, and there’s a tapas and sports bar on the ground floor. There are multiple dining venues and bars where guests can relax and savour delicious local and international cuisine.

“It is another landmark day in the history of the group. We are very excited to bring the Occidental brand to the UAE and we aim to deliver the exemplary standards that Barceló Hotel Group is renowned for.”

Commented Jaime Buxo, Chief Development Officer at the Barcelo Hotel Group. The hotel is positioned equal distance to the Dubai International Airport (DXB) and Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC). It is also close to several landmarks and attractions in Dubai, including the Dubai Marina Mall, The Walk at JBR, and the Mall of the Emirates.

The Barcelo Group is a Spanish hotel group that was established in 1931. The group operates four brands including Royal Hideaway, Barcelo Hotels and Resorts, Occidental Hotels and Resorts, and Allegro Hotels, with several hotels and resorts in major destinations all over the globe. The group operates three hotels in the region, and it will open the Barcelo Al Jadaf in Dubai in June 2019.
