Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has announced its continued expansion in Dubai with the opening of the 290-room Wyndham Dubai Deira, and the 94-key Super 8 by Wyndham Dubai Deira – its first property in the UAE under the economy brand.
The newly opened hotels are the first in the Deira Enrichment Project, a development by Ithra Dubai. Fully owned by the Investment Corporation of Dubai, it’s a mixed-use project situated along the Dubai Creek in the southern part of Deira.
Michel Augier, Regional Director, Middle East and Africa, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, says: “We’re thrilled to welcome these iconic brands to this important area of Dubai. The Deira Waterfront has great potential to attract visitors from around the world, many of whom bring varying accommodation needs, making it the ideal location to further expand our presence. With distinct offerings from economy to upscale, this marks yet another step in our continued commitment to making hotel travel possible for all.”
Designed for budget-conscious travellers, the Super 8 by Wyndham Dubai Deira features guestrooms with contemporary interior design elements complemented by traditional Arabian touches. During their stay, guests can enjoy international cuisine at Qahua, a restaurant where modern décor meets the famed Old Arabia. The hotel is located opposite Dubai Gold Souk and is close to the city’s popular landmarks.
The 14-floor Wyndham Dubai Deira boasts 290 rooms and suites. Amenities include a spa with two treatment rooms, a sauna and steam room, a fitness centre and a pool deck. The hotel also offers six food and beverage outlets including The Spicery, an all-day restaurant with 200 seats, a lounge bar, lobby lounge, pool bar and executive lounge.
An additional restaurant is expected to open in 2022, serving Latin American cuisine on the hotel’s all fresco terrace. Wyndham Deira Waterfront also features eight day-lit meeting rooms that can cater for up to 300 guests.
The new hotels add to Wyndham’s current portfolio of 16 hotels in the UAE, including 8 in Dubai. The company is also on track to open another hotel, the previously announced Days Hotel by Wyndham Dubai Deira, in the first half of 2021. The hotel is slated to be the first to open under the Days Inn® by Wyndham brand in the UAE.
