Hotels & Resorts
Mövenpick heads to Dubai Media City

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts will open its first property in Dubai Media City (DMC) in 2017.

The move capitalises on the fast-paced expansion of vibrant business district in Dubai, UAE.

The 251-key property will stand adjacent to the $1.23-billion “innovation hub” announced by the Dubai government last year – a new centre for communications and technology facilities that spans an area the size of two football pitches across DMC, Dubai Internet City and Knowledge Village.

“Dubai Media City is already home to more than 2,000 businesses according to Tecom and attracts thousands more workers and visitors on a daily basis. The cutting-edge innovation hub will significantly expand the district’s population and Mövenpick Hotel Dubai Media City will be well placed to cater to this community and beyond,” says Andreas Mattmüller, Chief Operating Officer, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, Middle East and Asia.

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ DMC debut will take the upscale hospitality specialist’s Dubai portfolio to eight properties by 2017. 

The company recently unveiled plans to open the 246-key Mövenpick Hotel Apartments Downtown Dubai in the same year.

Mövenpick Hotel Dubai Media City will feature rooms and suites with a minimum size of 42 sq m. The property will also have four restaurants and lounges, a spa, gymnasium and swimming pool, while a large divisible ballroom and four meeting venues with natural daylight will be available for events and conferences.

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts’ current Dubai portfolio spans six properties in locations including Ibn Battuta Mall near Jebel Ali, Jumeirah Lakes Towers, Jumeirah Beach on The Walk, Bur Dubai, Deira and Mamzar near Sharjah.

Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts, an international upscale hotel management company with over 16’000 staff members, is represented in 25 countries with 82 hotels, resorts and Nile cruisers currently in operation. Around 30 properties are planned or under construction, including Chiang Mai (Thailand), Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) and Tunis (Tunisia).

Of Swiss heritage and headquartered in central Switzerland (Baar), Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is passionate about delivering premium service and culinary enjoyment. 

The hotel company is owned by the Mövenpick Holding (66.7 per cent) and the Kingdom Group (33.3 per cent).
