ME by Meliá announces Middle East property
ME by Meliá has announced its debut property in the Middle East with the launch of ME Dubai at the end of 2018.
Designed by late architect, Zaha Hadid, ME Dubai is the only hotel project where she personally designed all of the interiors and exteriors, showcasing her vision of ‘interconnectedness’.
It will be located in the 95 metre-high, Opus building, which is the newest architectural icon in the Dubai skyline.
Situated in the upcoming Burj Khalifa district in Downtown Dubai, The Opus building is managed by Middle East real estate developer, Omniyat.
The hotel will consist of 93 rooms and suites, across 19 floors, the ultra-luxurious ‘Suite ME’, as well as 98 serviced apartments. The property will feature dramatic, signature furniture in the lobby, vertical café, lounges and reception area, which were either designed or personally selected by Zaha Hadid.
The lifestyle hotel will offer 15 restaurants, including ROKA, the contemporary Japanese robatayaki restaurant.
Gabriel Escarrer, vice Chairman and CEO, at Meliá Hotels International, said: “We are incredibly excited to open ME Dubai, our first ME property in the Middle East. Dubai is a fascinating, exciting city, known for its progressive feats of design; all of which are characteristics that resonate with ME by Meliá hotels and the high standards we offer our guests. We’re confident that our unwavering commitment to exemplary service, coupled with Zada Hadid’s remarkable design and ROKA’s sumptuous cuisine will make for an unparalleled experience for our guests in Dubai.”
