DUBAI, UAE—Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts will open a property here in Dubai Media City in 2017.
The 251-key Mövenpick Hotel Dubai Media City will stand adjacent to the AED 4.5-billion ($1.2-billion) innovation hub announced by the Dubai government last year, a new center for communications and technology facilities that spans an area the size of two football fields across DMC, Dubai Internet City and Knowledge Village.
“Dubai Media City is already home to more than 2,000 businesses and attracts thousands more workers and visitors on a daily basis. The cutting-edge innovation hub will significantly expand the district’s population and Mövenpick Hotel Dubai Media City will be well placed to cater to this community and beyond,” stated Andreas Mattmüller, COO of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, Middle East and Asia.
Mövenpick Hotel Dubai Media City will take the hotel company’s Dubai portfolio to eight properties by 2017. The company recently unveiled plans to open the 246-key Mövenpick Hotel Apartments Downtown Dubai in the same year.
Mövenpick Hotel Dubai Media City will feature four restaurants and lounges, a spa, gym and swimming pool, a ballroom and four meeting venues.
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ current Dubai portfolio includes Ibn Battuta Mall near Jebel Ali, Jumeirah Lakes Towers, Jumeirah Beach on The Walk, Bur Dubai, Deira and Mamzar near Sharjah.
