Dubai set to host first Legoland Hotel in the Middle East

DXB Entertainments and Merlin Entertainments Group say every one of 250 rooms will have Lego models and theming

Details have been revealed about plans to build the first Legoland Hotel in the Middle East in Dubai.

DXB Entertainments, a Dubai-based company, and Merlin Entertainments Group, one of the world’s biggest theme park and attraction operators, will open the hotel at Dubai Parks and Resorts. 

Every room in the first Legoland Hotel in the Middle East and the seventh to open worldwide will have Lego models and theming.

From the disco elevator to the Castle Play Area, Legoland designers have integrated Lego storylines for every guest to create a memorable adventure, a statement said.

The hotel will be built close to Legoland Dubai which has more than 40 rides and attractions, and Legoland Water Park which has 20 slides.

The Legoland Dubai Hotel is a 60:40 joint venture between DXB Entertainments PJSC and Merlin Entertainments, and will be operated by Merlin Entertainments once opened.

The 250-room hotel will be built on approximately 300,000 square feet of land earmarked for Legoland expansion as part of the Dubai Parks and Resorts destination. No date was given for the opening of the hotel.

Raed Kajoor Al Nuaimi, DXB Entertainments’ CEO 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.

"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.”

John Jakobsen, chief new openings officer at Merlin Entertainments, added: “Themed accommodation is an increasingly important part of the holiday and short-break visit, and we’re delighted to continue our partnership with DXB with the development of this hotel.”
