“This is an important and exciting time for Dubai’s hospitality and leisure industry,” said Gary Williams, Event Director of the dmg events hospitality portfolio including The Hotel Show and The Leisure Show. “Over the course of the next six months, world-famous brands including W Hotels & Resorts, Hard Rock Hotels, and Nikki Beach are entering the Dubai market for the first time, while two major new theme parks – IMG Worlds of Adventure and Dubai Parks and Resorts – are set to open their gates.”
Alexander Schneider, General Manager of the Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Dubai commented: “More than 40,000 people visited the Nikki Beach Club Dubai in its first 3 months of opening, and our hotel, villas, residences and Nikki Spa will open here by the end of 2016. We are proud to bring a unique product to this market in an exclusive location on the Pearl Jumeira.”
Schneider continued: “When it fully opens to the public later this year, Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Dubai will be the 13th permanent Nikki Beach location and its 4th hotel property to open worldwide. Dubai is one of the world’s fastest growing tourist, leisure and entertainment destinations, synonymous with luxury and good living. The general message of the Nikki Beach brand is “Celebrate Life”, and it is known for its luxurious offering, exceptional entertainment and elite clientele. Dubai was a clear choice for Nikki Beach and its most extensive resort to date.”
