New-build hotel will form part of city centre mixed-use development
Hilton has announced the signing of the DoubleTree by Hilton Fujairah City Centre, expected to open later this year.
The new property will open under a management agreement with Al Taif Investment and will form part of a mixed-use development known as Al Taif Business Centre, which comprises offices and residences. The hotel also has direct access to the Al Taif Business Centre mall.
Al Taif Investment Chief Executive Khalid bin Kalban said: “We conceptualised and designed Al Taif Business Centre as an inclusive facility, providing an iconic fusion of business and leisure facilities, and we are pleased to be working with Hilton to open this world-class hotel at our flagship project in Fujairah.
“With the emirate continuing to be an important logistics hub for the UAE, hosting several world-class medical facilities and developing a pipeline of infrastructure projects, it is an ideal venue to host many domestic and international tourists – and we are positive that this new addition will serve as a catalyst for the emerging needs of the emirate.”
Expected to open in late 2022, DoubleTree by Hilton Fujairah City Centre will feature 228 guest rooms, meeting and event spaces and a diverse selection of restaurants and bars. The hotel is also located in close proximity to Fujairah Port and Fujairah Terminals, sports stadiums and the Fujairah International Marine Club.
Hilton vice president, development, Middle East & Africa Carlos Khneisser said: “This hotel will provide all of those travelling to and living in the emirate with Hilton’s world-class service standards and DoubleTree by Hilton’s signature hospitality.
“We are grateful for the opportunity provided to us and delighted to support the vision of our partners at Al Taif Investment, as we strive to push the emirate of Fujairah into the next phase of its tourism and economic development and expand our growing network effect throughout the country.”
