Hyatt has entered into a management agreement with wasl
Asset Management Group, one of the largest real estate development
and management companies in Dubai, for the development of an Andaz-branded
hotel at La Mer - a vibrant lifestyle district in the coastal area
Expected to open in 2020, the property will become
the first Andaz-branded hotel in Dubai and the second Andaz hotel
in the United Arab Emirates, after the Andaz Capital Gate Abu Dhabi.
Andaz Dubai La Mer will feature 156 rooms and
suites, two restaurants and a rooftop bar and
pool area. Meeting facilities, available to guests and locals, will encompass two
residential-style studio rooms.
Ludwig Bouldoukian, Hyatt’s Dubai-based regional vice president of
development, Middle East and North Africa, said, “We’re excited to
introduce the Andaz brand to Dubai, as we believe the brand will
bring to life the culture of this vibrant city. Given its location
at La Mer, the hotel will provide the ideal setting for visitors
looking to experience the ultra-modern, design-led façade of
Dubai, something that will be integrated in the hotel’s character.
It is a pleasure to continue our work with wasl Asset Management
Group to realise this vision.”
