Paramount Dubai puts back launch to the end of September as finishing touches are added
The launch date for Paramount Hotels and Resorts' first Hollywood-themed hotel in Dubai has been postponed, it was reported on Tuesday.
Initially slated to open on September 1, the property will now officially launch at the end of the month, a source told Hotelier Middle East.
While the property refused to comment on the reasons behind the delay, Wael Soueid, general manager, said final touches were being added "to ensure the hotel’s premier is on top of the Box Office chart".
Soueid told Hotelier Middle East: “We are in process of finalising and training our Paramount cast. Our ensemble of executive directors are working in tandem to design, deliver and detail memorable experiences.”
Located in Dubai’s Business Bay, the hotel will feature 823 rooms including suites from a variety of films such as the Great Gatsby Suite and The Godfather Suite.
It will also feature several F&B concepts such as the Speakeasy Bar & Lounge for custom cocktails in a Hollywood setting, complete with moving posters and two private rooms.
The hotel also features immersive video walls in the lobby, Paramount Screening Room, PAUSE Spa, a fitness centre and events facilities as well as their signature co-working work/play suites.
