Dubai continues to be a major tourist destination, and many of those visitors arrive by cruise ship. Earlier this month, Port Rashid welcomed five international cruise liners in one day, bringing a total of 25,000 tourists to the city.
Dubai will soon gain another hotel. Hyatt Hotels Corporation recently announced the development of an Andaz-branded property at La Mer, a lifestyle district in Jumeirah. The property is expected to open in 2020 and will be the first Andaz-branded hotel in the city.
Address Dubai Mall recently underwent a significant renovation. Rooms are newly outfitted with elegant furnishings as well as balconies that offer incredible views over the city. The property offers several dining options as well as a rejuvenating spa.
With Dubai's Expo 2020 around the corner, one would expect the hotel industry to take on the challenge to cater for a boost in visitors. Whilst this is true for some hotels, and development in the Emirates remains strong, Bloomberg has reported that some investors are looking to offload assets rather than expanding them.
TIME Hotels has revealed its festive line-up of events at its hotels in Dubai over the Christmas and New Year period. The hotel group will host special festive feasts on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year's Eve and Day. Guests can enjoy a range of events at the TIME Grand Plaza Hotel and the TIME Oak Hotel & Suites, both of which are in Dubai.
