Emaar Hospitality has decided to 'temporarily refocus on a selected number of assets'
Emaar Hospitality will stop taking bookings at three hotels in Dubai for more than five months as it temporarily “refocuses” on certain assets amid the ongoing coronavirus epidemic, according to the company.
In a statement, an Emaar spokesperson said that “following the recent global impact on the travel industry drawing us into a state of force majeure, Emaar Hospitality Group has taken the decision to temporarily refocus on a selected number of assets”.
It is understood that the hotels are Address Fountain Views, Vida Creek Harbour and Vida Emirates Hills.
The decision will come into force on March 15 and last until August 31, the document said.
Restaurants, gyms and pools at the three locations will remain open, while guests will be rebooked at other Emaar properties in Dubai.
