Dubai: A second Mandarin Oriental hotel is set to open in Dubai, according to wasl Asset Management Group, the real estate development and management company behind the project in Dubai.
It is due to open in November 2020, and will be located on Shaikh Zayed Road, anchoring the 63-storey mixed-use wasl Tower.
The hotel will open two years after the first Mandarin Oriental in Dubai, opening on Jumeirah Beach in the fourth quarter of 2018.
His Excellency Hesham Al Qasim, CEO of wasl Asset Management Group, commented: “We are pleased to be partnering once again with Mandarin Oriental to bring another elegant and sophisticated hotel to Dubai, which furthers wasl’s mandate to supply the Emirate’s hospitality sector with quality hotels. Combined with the premium property offering at wasl Tower, we are offering the height of luxury in both the hospitality and residential sectors, which wasl works to support in alignment with the vision of the UAE’s wise leadership.”
Integrated urban environment
Both hotels are being developed in collaboration with Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, the international hotel investment and management group, while Amsterdam-based UN Studio is the appointed architect of the 300-metre-high building, wasl Tower, which has been designed as an integrated urban environment that promotes connectivity and sustainability.
The hotel will have 257 rooms, suites, and serviced apartments, which will be located on floors 16 to 38 of the tower.
Adding to wasl Tower’s residential offering, the hotel will also be home to 144 residences located on the tower’s upper floors.
