Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts is planning to open a new property in Dubai’s International Finance Centre in 2016. It will complement the brand’s just-opened resort on Jumeirah Beach.
Four Seasons Hotel Dubai at DIFC will feature 106 rooms as well as four executive-style meeting rooms. Other amenities targeted at international business travellers include a 24-hour restaurant; a lobby level tea lounge and terrace for casual meetings; and an 8th floor sky bar and cigar room on the mezzanine, both offering views of the Burj Khalifa.
“Our entry into Dubai has been extremely well received by locals and global travellers alike, and we are very pleased to be able to ooffer them a second Four Seasons experience in the city,” says Allen Smith, president and CEO, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “Together with our partner Bright Start, we introduced Four Seasons to the Dubai market last year and raised the standard for luxury hospitality in this incredibly competitive market. We look forward to building on our reputation with our second hotel at the epicentre of the financial district.”
Four Seasons also announced the appointment of veteran hotelier Carlo Stragiotto as general manager of the new hotel.
