Luxury Dubai hotel Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina re-opened on Monday following an 11-month refurbishment.

The 220-room beachfront property, operated by Le Meridien Hotels & Resorts, has seen a major revamp across all of its guest rooms, public areas and food & beverage outlets.

New restaurants at the complex include ‘Latest Recipe’, specialising in international cuisine, Japanese eatery ‘Watatsumi’ and ‘Latitude’. Bar and expat favourite ‘Barasti’ also remains.

The newly refurbished property also features a number of leisure facilities such as swimming pool, private beach, water sports, tennis courts and gym.

“The hotel is positioned to provide a city escape for urbanites, a tranquil retreat for leisure travellers, as well as a meeting point for travellers seeking cultural discovery, wellness and relaxation,” said general manager Stewart Selbie.

Research published by STR Global in December 2012 showed the UAE has the biggest number of hotel rooms under construction in the Middle East and Africa region, a total of 20,030 rooms being built.

Statistics published in a separate report by Ernst and Young showed Dubai hotels enjoyed a 17.3 percent rise in revenue per available room (RevPAR) in October while occupancy rates rose more than 5 percent.

Its Middle East Hotel Benchmark Survey also showed that average room rates rose nearly 10 percent in October.
