DXB Entertainments, Merlin Entertainments unveil Legoland Dubai hotel
DXB Entertainments, the Dubai-based leisure and entertainment company, and theme park and attraction operators, Merlin Entertainments Group, is set to bring the first Legoland Hotel to the Middle East.
The family-fun hotel will open at Dubai Parks and Resorts, the Middle Easts largest integrated theme park destination. The hotel will be located adjacent to the existing Legoland Dubai theme park.
DXB Entertainments chief executive officer, Raed Kajoor Al Nuaimi, said: The addition of a Lego-themed hotel at Dubai Parks and Resorts will bring the total hospitality offering at the destination to over 750 rooms.
With more than 100 rides and attractions spread across three theme parks, one water park and Six Flags Dubai opening in 2019, we expect families to spend several days at the destination to enjoy all the amazing experiences we offer. We are very pleased to partner with Merlin Entertainments to deliver a fun-filled and convenient place for families to stay as well as long-term value to our shareholders.
Legoland Hotel is the first of its kind in the Middle East and the seventh to open worldwide. Every room in the hotel will have Lego models and theming for guests to continue their Legoland Park adventure into the evening.
Merlin Entertainments chief new openings officer, John Jakobsen, commented: Themed accommodation is an increasingly important part of the holiday and short-break visit, and were delighted to continue our partnership with DXB with the development of this hotel the first of its kind in the Middle East region, which will allow families and children to continue their amazing Legoland experience after the park closes.
