Dubai’s hotel construction pipeline has hit new heights in 2017 – surpassing more than 100,000 rooms.
A new report by TOPHOTELPROJECTS prepared exclusively for the TOPHOTELPROJECTS World Tour Dubai reveals that 168 hotels and 110,691 hotel rooms are currently in the vision, planning, construction, and pre-opening stages across the emirate, maintaining its long-standing position as the busiest city for hotel construction in the Middle East. The majority of new properties are forecast to open before 2020, with 2018 scheduled to be a particularly busy year.
According to Dubai Tourism, Dubai’s existing hotel inventory reached 100,000 rooms in 2016. The new report highlights that the fast-growing city is well on its way to double this figure in the next five years.
The brands identified by the report as having the most hotels currently in the construction pipeline across Dubai are: aloft Hotels (Marriott International), Rotana Hotels & Resorts (Rotana Hotel Management) and Radisson Blu (Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group).
Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group currently has 11 hotels under construction totaling almost 3,000 rooms in Dubai. This growth is spread across its Radisson Blu, Park Inn by Radisson and Radisson RED brands.
, Area Senior Vice President, Middle East, Turkey and Africa at Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, commented: “We have a well-established presence in Europe with Radisson Blu as the largest upper upscale hotel brand and we are very pleased with our strong growth across the Middle East, where we aim to have 100 hotels in operation by 2020.”
“2017 is a significant year for the Group as we have over 20 hotel openings across the region in key destinations such as Dubai,” Willis continued. “Dubai has a strong international appeal and this can be attributed to the Emirate’s vision, diversification of its offering and dynamic response to various travel needs, whether that be business, hosting world class events and exhibitions or providing leading leisure attractions from beach resorts, theme parks to shopping.”
Three of the new Carlson Rezidor properties will open in Dubai this year are Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Waterfront (Q4 2017), Park Inn by Radisson Dubai Motor City (Q4 2017) and Park Inn by Radisson Dubai Al Jadaf (Q4 2017):
