Rove Hotels will expand its portfolio with a new hotel adjacent to Dubai Parks and Resorts. The new 458-room Rove At The Park hotel will be located off Sheikh Zayed Road, close to Palm Jebel Ali midway between the Dubai and Abu Dhabi International Airports. Dubai Parks and Resorts will become the region’s largest integrated theme park destination when it opens in October 2016.
The resort comprises three separate theme parks; Motiongate Dubai, a Hollywood movie inspired theme park; Legoland Dubai, the first Legoland theme park in the Middle East; and Bollywood Parks Dubai, an entertainment destination that will showcase the Bollywood movie experiences. Legoland Water Park, the region’s first water park catering to families with children 2-12 will also open on the site.
The destination will also host the Lapita Hotel, a Polynesian-themed hotel, and Riverland Dubai, a centrally located retail, dining and entertainment district that serves as the gateway to the resort.
Chris Newman, corporate director, operations, Emaar Hospitality Group, said, “Rove Hotels defines a new dimension in the evolution of the city’s hospitality sector. Integrating innovation, sophistication and cultural enrichment, the new Rove property will deliver incredible value as it prepares to welcome guests from around the world, particularly leisure travellers who will arrive in the area to experience Dubai Parks and Resorts’ leisure attractions. We are keen to leverage the significant business opportunity within the proximity of Dubai Parks and Resorts that is set to catalyse Dubai’s leisure and tourism sector.”
The hotel will feature a contemporary and urban design with Arabesque elements and display local art-pieces throughout the public areas. The hotel will also offer a business centre, 24-hour convenience store, 24-hour gym, pool, sun deck and a self-service laundromat.
Rove Hotels plans to operate 10 hotels with over 2,660 keys to support the ongoing preparation for Expo 2020 Dubai.
