Luxury lifestyle hotel brand, ME by Meliá, has announced its debut property in the Middle East with the launch of ME Dubai – which is expected to open at the end of 2018.
ME Dubai will consist of 93 rooms and suites, across 19 floors, the Suite ME, as well as 98 serviced apartments.
Gabriel Escarrer, vice chairman and CEO, at Meliá Hotels International, said: “We are incredibly excited to open ME Dubai, our first property in the Middle East. Dubai is a fascinating, exciting city, known for its progressive feats of design; all of which are characteristics that resonate with ME by Meliá hotels and the high standards we offer our guests. We are incredibly excited to open ME Dubai, our first property in the Middle East, in partnership with Omniyat to bring Zaha Hadid’s vision to life.
“We’re confident that our unwavering commitment to exemplary service, coupled with Zada Hadid’s remarkable design and ROKA’s sumptuous cuisine will make for an unparalleled experience for our guests in Dubai.”
ME Dubai will take residence in the 95-metre high Opus building, situated in the upcoming Burj Khalifa district in Downtown Dubai.
Mahdi Amjad, chairman and CEO at Omniyat, said: “The architectural wonder of The Opus requires a hotel partner that can resonate with its design and lifestyle appeal. We’re very proud and happy that ME by Melia is that partner and look forward to the first ME hotel in the region opening in The Opus.”
There are currently ME by Meliá hotels in Miami, Milan, London, Ibiza, Mallorca, Madrid and Cabo, with further openings in Sitges in 2018 and Barcelona in 2019.
