Corinthia Hotels set to open first property in Middle East, Corinthia Meydan Beach Dubai

April 11th, 2019

Corinthia, the family of unique, uplifting luxury destinations, has announced the opening of its first hotel in the Middle East. Due to launch in 2020, this contemporary beachfront hotel marks the beginning of ambitious expansion plans by the hotel group. Corinthia Meydan Beach Dubai will be located on the prestigious JBR beachfront, reflecting the enriching brand values for which Corinthia is known. As such, this opening represents an important, landmark moment for Corinthia in both the region and worldwide.

Working in partnership with Meydan Group, Corinthia Meydan Beach has been designed as a spectacular new beachfront resort that will exquisitely reflect both the bliss of the beach and the excitement of the city; allowing guests to discover something new about Dubai and themselves. Situated within Dubai Marina, overlooking a pristine stretch of white sand, the 55-storey hotel will be home to 360 exquisite rooms and suites. This beachfront landmark will be complete with cascading infinity pools, the region’s first ESPALife Spa and unforgettable culinary experiences. It’s also intelligently designed for spectacular views across to the Dubai Eye and Palm Jumeirah. Internationally renowned American design professionals AE7 have ensured each detail of the hotel has been meticulously considered to create a tribute to the region’s tradition of architectural grandeur and cultural traditions.

The existing Corinthia portfolio features the flagship Corinthia London, as well as award-winning Corinthia Hotels in Budapest, Malta, St Petersburg, Prague, Lisbon, Khartoum and Tripoli. From city-centre hotels to coastal resorts, each one is connected by a strong Corinthia philosophy. Inspired by its Mediterranean, family-run heritage, the brand is dedicated to providing uplifting moments, unforgettable experiences and exquisite service.

Corinthia’s Area Managing Director Middle East Matthew Dixon said: “Corinthia Meydan Beach is an exciting addition to the region’s hospitality landscape, representing both a landmark milestone for us as a brand, and for Dubai. The energy, vision and quality of resources assembled for this project by Meydan means that this hotel is in the enviable position of offering the market something fresh and new; an interpretation of heritage, culture and service values that we feel have not yet been bought to the UAE. We are confident that this property will enhance the Corinthia brand in the region, brilliantly enhancing our existing portfolio.”
