Luxury Mayfair boutique hotel, Dukes London, is set to open its first international property in Dubai, ready for launch in 2016.
The 273-bedroom Dukes Oceana will be located on Palm Jumeirah and will mark Dukes Collection’s debut international acquisition when it officially opens its doors next year.
The new hotel will bring a “distinctly English flavour to the city’s luxury hospitality offering”, and will consist of leisure and entertainment facilities, including a private beach, indoor and outdoor pool, plus a gym and a number of restaurants.
Alongside Dukes Oceana, the brand will also be launching 185 studios and 42 one-bedroom apartments adjacent to the main hotel site, which will open on 14 April this year, targeted at the regional and international investment community.
Debrah Dhuggah, DUKES managing director commented, “We couldn’t be more thrilled to bring the DUKES brand to an exciting city like Dubai, which is rich in culture, art, and sophistication. There is a missing piece in the Dubai hotel market for something quintessentially British and DUKES is a British gem which will certainly fill this gap.”
Established in 2004, Seven Tides has developed its own portfolio of commercial, residential and resort properties in the world, including Dukes London.
