Rove Hotels has signed an agreement with Mada’in Properties PJSC to operate Rove Mina Seyahi in Dubai, the company announced on Monday.
The long-term management agreement will see Rove operate the 270-room Rove Mina Seyahi and Rove Residences Mina Seyahi, a collection of 443 serviced residence that the company says will “soon” open for sale.
The Rove Mina Seyahi, for its part, is envisioned as a 50-storey tower featuring a hotel and services residences. It is expected to be operational in 2021.
Additionally, the Rove Mina Seyahi will include a swimming pool, fitness facilities, meeting rooms, a children’s play area and a signature all-day restaurant, the Daily Mina Seyahi.
The property will be located adjacent to Dubai’s Al Sufouh Road, with easy access to the Dubai Metro and Dubai Tram, and within walking distance of the beach and Dubai Marina promenade.
“Rove Mina Seyahi is our first mixed-use hospitality development in the UAE, having delivered Marina Arcade, a chic residential super-tower,” said Abdulaziz Al Awar, chairman of Mada’in Properties PJSC. “With the strong focus of the Dubai Marina district and the surrounding areas on luxury hotel projects, the contemporary midscale value proposition of Rove Hotels will make Rove Mina Seyahi stand-out and appealing to the new generation of travellers, entrepreneurs and investors.”
Olivier Harnisch, the CEO OF Emaar Hospitality Group, said that the agreement “Seyahi underlines the clear value-add and distinctive identity that the home-grown Rove Hotels brand has earned in a short span of time since its inception.”
“Dubai Marina’s central location, the access to the wide choice of lifestyle amenities, and the signature identity of Rove Hotels to deliver fuss-free and super-efficient service will be key selling points of the development,” he added. “We will continue to explore such management contracts in the UAE and the region for Rove Hotels.”
Mada’in Properties PJSC, A UAE-based private joint stock company, is also currently developing a residential community in Dubai South, as well as a community retail centre in Dubai Marina.
At the moment, there are four Rove Hotels in Dubai: Rove Downtown, Rove City Centre, Rover Healthcare City and Rove Trade Centre.For all the latest travel news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
