06 Nov EMAAR launches new waterfront project in Dubai
The UAE’s Emaar Hospitality Group, the hospitality and leisure subsidiary of Emaar Properties, has unveiled plans for Vida Harbour Point, a new waterfront lifestyle project in Dubai and the seventh upcoming hotel project in the UAE under the Vida Hotels and Resorts brand.
Vida Harbour Point is the second hotel project by Emaar Hospitality Group at the Dubai Creek Harbour development, following the recent announcement regarding the Address Harbour Point, a premium lifestyle hotel and serviced residences to be operated by the Address Hotels + Resorts brand.
Vida Harbour Point will have 275 rooms. The hotel will maintain a similar design approach typical of other Vida hotels across the city.
The new project, located in The Island District of Dubai Creek Harbour mega-project, will offer views of the Dubai Creek, the Downtown Dubai skyline and the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary.
In addition to a range of in-hotel amenities such as an all-day dining restaurant, health and fitness facilities, meeting rooms and events venues, guests will have direct access to a vibrant 4.5 km long Creek Boardwalk and a marina that can berth yachts of varying sizes. The Boardwalk will feature retail, leisure, F&B outlets, event spaces, galleries and water features.
Olivier Harnisch, chief executive officer of Emaar Hospitality Group, said: “Dubai Creek Harbour is today one of the most sought-after lifestyle and residential destinations and will be one of the hospitality hubs of the future.”
Vida Hotels and Resorts currently has two operational properties in the UAE – the 156-room Vida Downtown and 197-room Manzil Downtown, both in Downtown Dubai. Other upcoming projects in the country include: Vida Dubai Marina, Vida Dubai Mall, Vida The Hills, Vida Townsquare, Vida Residences Downtown and Vida Beach Reem Island Abu Dhabi. The brand has expanded internationally with management agreements to operate Vida Jeddah Gate in Saudi Arabia, Vida Marassi Marina in Egypt and Vida Marassi Al Bahrain.
