Hilton has signed a deal to open a hotel under the Curio Collection banner in Dubai.
The agreement between Hilton and the Khamas Group of Investments and Bethahab Group will see the new property opening in Business Bay in 2019.
“Curio Collection allows owners to develop unique concepts for upper upscale hotels and plug them into our Hilton system.” said Carlos Khneisser, vice president, development, Middle East and North Africa, Hilton.
“Business Bay is home to a number of developments designed to increase Dubai’s ability to provide stand out experiential attractions as part of Dubai’s Tourism Vision 2020. So we see the location as ideally suited to working with an owner who is committed to designing and developing an equally distinctive hospitality experience.”
The hotel will be located on the Dubai Water Canal and will feature four dining outlets including a lobby lounge, an outdoor lounge offering shisha and an all-day dining restaurant with views of downtown Dubai, Business Bay and the Dubai canal.
All guests will have access to spa, salon and fitness facilities along with an outdoor pool. The hotel will also offer a business centre, five meeting rooms and two boardrooms.
This latest property adds to the Curio brand’s growing portfolio in the Middle East which will see The Rosemont Hotel & Residences, Curio Collection by Hilton open in Dubai in 2018.
The region’s debut property, AlRayyan Hotel Doha, Curio Collection by Hilton opened in Qatar in 2016.
