IHG opens up Dubai

Two new properties in Dubai’s Business Bay are on the way from InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), including a Crowne Plaza hotel and an InterContinental Residence Suites development.

Both properties are in partnership with API Hotels & Resorts, with IHG saying their location in the planned business capital of the Dubai region is in line with its strategy to grow the two brands in emerging commercial epicentres.

Expected to open in 2019, Crowne Plaza Dubai Business Bay will be situated on the Business Bay Canal, near the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Mall, as well as other developing commercial and residential communities.

With 290 rooms and suites, the hotel will offer guests all-day dining options a gym and an outdoor infinity pool and as a major draw for business travellers will also include a ballroom and several meeting rooms for hosting conferences and events.

The Residence Suites complex will be across from the Crowne Plaza in an area planned to become one of Dubai’s top destinations, with the region’s first purpose-built yacht harbour plus floating restaurants and cafés spread across five marinas.
