Emaar launches boutique hotel in Dubai

February 2015

EMAAR Hospitality Group, the hospitality and leisure subsidiary of Emaar Properties, has officially opened Manzil Downtown Dubai, a new upscale lifestyle boutique hotel.

Managed by Vida Hotels and Resorts, the lifestyle hotel brand targets the new generation of business executives, entrepreneurs and leisure travellers.

Manzil Downtown Dubai is located centrally on Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard in Emaar’s mega-development, which is described as ‘The Centre of Now.’

Overlooking Souk Al Bahar, the 197-room hotel is within walking distance of Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, and The Dubai Mall.

Philippe Zuber, chief operating officer, Emaar Hospitality Group, said: “Manzil Downtown Dubai stands apart across all touch-points – from design to décor and service standards – and will focus on engaging guests meaningfully and assuring them authentic must-return lifestyle experiences.”

“The addition of Manzil Downtown Dubai to the Vida Hotels and Resorts portfolio also reflects our goal of connecting with the new generation of global travellers, especially local Emirati and GCC guests, who are discerning in their preferences, seek consistent value and cherish a fuss-free hospitality choice.”

The hotel is distinguished by a palette of brown, beige and white. It has 155 standard king rooms, spaciously laid out in a 32-sq-m area, with Burj Khalifa or pool views, as well as 56 twin rooms and eight Burj View suites with balcony spanning an area of 48 sq m.

The hotel features Boulevard Kitchen, an all-day dining restaurant that serves food from across the Middle East, prepared in an open plan kitchen.
