Nakheel teams up with Centara to create new resort
Nakheel is planning to partner Thailand-based Centara Hotels and Resorts to create a 550-room resort at Dubai’s newest tourism hotspot – Deira Islands.
The upscale beachfront resort, complete with its own waterpark, would be the first Centara establishment in the UAE.
Nakheel has 10 hotels – including five star, all inclusive and value-for-money concepts – currently underway and are planned at locations across Dubai, with five of them at Deira Islands.
Nakheel’s hotel portfolio also includes the five star Palm Tower on Palm Jumeirah, two hotels at Ibn Battuta Mall and two at Dragon City.
The planned partnership is Nakheel’s third joint venture for hotels at Deira Islands announced this year.
“We continuously explore new opportunities to strategically expand the Centara portfolio in international markets. Dubai is a key city for us and with Nakheel’s strength and success in the market, they make the ideal development partner,” said Thirayuth Chirathivat, CEO of Centara Hotels and Resorts.
