Developer appoints interior fit-out contractor for 253-key resort and spa with focus on health and wellbeing
R Hotels has named Fourzone Middle East as its interior fit-out contractor for its new four-star resort and spa on Dubai's Palm Jumeirah.
The 253-key property, which will be the first holistic health and wellness resort in the region, is expected to open doors in April 2017.
The fit-out deal was signed by Samir Arora, the property's pre-opening general manager, and Ajish Nambiar, Fourzone Middle East's marketing director.
Fourzone Middle East is tasked to provide the complete interior fit-out solutions for the project - from production and sourcing of furniture and soft furnishings, and carrying out finishing works, a statement said.
In line with its concept, the general look and feel of the hotel will be organic, using design elements like wood and utilising earth colours in the interior and furnishings, it added.
With its focus on wellbeing, property will feature a restaurant with healthy menu, gym and tennis court, an area dedicated for fitness classes, swimming pool and private beach facilities, and separate spa for men and women with hamman, sauna, steam bath and treatment rooms.
Arora said: "R Hotels' new property in Palm Jumeirah is the group's sixth, and biggest project to date. The fit-out is crucial as it will set the overall character of the property, to convey the holistic wellness concept. We are confident, given Fourzone Middle East's track record, that they can deliver the job efficiently and within the given time frame."
