The new-build five-star hotel will feature a spa, 300sqm of meeting space, several restaurants and bars, a smoking lounge and business centre. 

According to Sol Melia the hotel will become the first property run by a Spanish hotel group in the Middle East when it opens in January 2011. The group recently recently opened a Gran Melia property in Shanghai in time for the World Expo (see online news February 8).
