Filipino residents are in for a special treat at the Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Deira Creek. Dubai’s first five-star hotel has launched exclusive offers for all Filipino expats living in the UAE. 

There are over 679,819 Filipinos living in the UAE, and about 450,000 live in Dubai. Forming 5 per cent of the population of the entire country, the Philippines ranks number four in the largest number of population by nationality.

With about 450,000 Filipinos living in Dubai, the Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Deira Creek has seen a massive spike in Filipino guests dining in their restaurants.

“We have seen a massive increase in the number of Filipino dining guests in our hotel. Establishing relationships with various official organisations related to the Filipino community such as the Filipino Social Club and the Philippine Business Council, has also helped increase the percentage of this demographic for our business,” says Jan Hanak, general manager of the Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Deira Creek. “Over the last few years, the Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Deira Creek has hosted several delegations and conferences for Filipino bureaucrats and officials. In addition, we have been visited by top Filipino celebrities such as 2018 Miss Universe Catriona Gray, actress and television host, Maymay Entrata, and singer, Lovi Poe, to name a few.”

Because of this, the food and beverage team seized the opportunity to reward this community’s continued patronage. Ben Hipolito, Assistant Food and Beverage Manager at the Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Deira Creek, is a Filipino national and is the person who discovered the great potential of this piece of business. “Out of our award-winning fifteen restaurants and bars, we have around four outlets that serve Asian cuisine, including Japanese, Southeast Asian, Chinese, and Korean food – typically flavours that appeal a lot to the Filipino palate. Over the last two years, we have had over 30,000 Filipino guests dining in our hotel, contributing a good chunk of percentage towards our overall food and beverage revenues.”
