Wyndham Hotels and Resorts has opened two new hotels in Deira as it continues to expand across the UAE.
The Wyndham Dubai Deira and Super 8 by Wyndham Dubai Deira (the budget brand’s first property in the country) are part of the ongoing Deira Enrichment Project, a mixed-use development along the Dubai creek.
Owned by Investment Corporation of Dubai and under development by Ithra Dubai, the project aims to expand “the urban fabric of the existing Deira community towards the waterfront” and is expected to become one of the largest waterfronts and man-made developments in the world.
The Super 8 by Wyndham Dubai Deira is located opposite Dubai Gold Souk, and features 94 rooms with contemporary design and traditional Arabian touches. The hotel’s restaurant Qahua serves international cuisine, with interiors described as “where modern décor meets famed Old Arabia”.
Meanwhile, the upscale Wyndham Dubai Deira comprises 290 rooms and suites across 14 floors. Amenities include a spa with two treatment rooms, a sauna and steam room, a fitness centre and pool deck. The hotel also boasts six dining outlets, including all-day restaurant The Spicery, a lounge bar, lobby lounge, pool bar and executive lounge, and there are eight meeting rooms with capacity for 300 guests. The property plans to open a Latin American restaurant in 2022 on its al-fresco terrace.
The hotels are located a 20-minute drive from Dubai International airport and The Dubai Mall. The properties are also close to Deira’s metro stations, bus routes and the Old Souk water taxi station.
Michel Augier, regional director, Middle East and Africa, Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, said:
“We are thrilled to welcome these iconic brands to this important area of Dubai. The Deira Waterfront has great potential to attract visitors from around the world, many of whom bring varying accommodation needs, making it the ideal location to further expand our presence. With distinct offerings from economy to upscale, this marks yet another step in our continued commitment to making hotel travel possible for all.”
The new hotels will join the group’s 16 hotels in the UAE, including eight in Dubai. The group also plans to open Days Hotel by Wyndham Dubai Deira in the first half of next year – the first Days Inn by Wyndham brand in the UAE.
