Hilton will be bringing its hospitality to Pakistan once again. An agreement signed with Dhabi Hospitality will see its upscale DoubleTree by Hilton brand launch in the city of Islamabad in 2025.
Carlos Khneisser, vice president of development, Middle East and Africa, Hilton says: “This is a landmark agreement for Hilton which signals our re-entry into the Pakistan market. We’re doing so as part of a groundbreaking development in the country’s business capital and one which will offer unparalleled convenience for travellers to the New Islamabad International Airport which is ultimately expected to handle around 25m passengers on an annual basis.”
Featuring 167 guest rooms, including 10 suites, the property will form part of a residential and commercial development. It will sit alongside newly built residential apartments, in a sub-urban complex containing healthcare, education and recreational facilities as well as a number of commercial outlets. Guests will be able to enjoy four restaurants, including a rooftop pool café, as well as on-site fitness facilities.
Muhammad Sadiq, CEO, Dhabi Hospitality says: “We aim to blend the comfort of sub-urban living with the convenience of city life offering our customers an unrivalled lifestyle and the very best in modern amenities and services. We’re proud to be bringing the DoubleTree by Hilton brand to Pakistan as part of this project and are excited to complement our offering with its world-renowned upscale hospitality and service.”
The hotel will be located to the West of Islamabad city centre, on the Srinagar Highway which connects the city with New Islamabad International Airport. Just 4km from the airport terminal, it will be equipped with three art meeting rooms and a 518sqm ballroom suitable for weddings and large events.
