Expansion: Marriott to Open More Than 80 Hotels in UAE


Marriott International continues to reinforce its position as a leading hospitality company in the UAE with the expected addition of 11 new properties by year-end and a robust development outlook over the next five years.

Year-to-date, the company has added six new properties and is scheduled to add five more in the country – bringing its portfolio in the UAE to 59 properties and over 17,000 rooms across six Emirates by the end of the year.

Two of Marriott’s openings in 2018 feature regional brand debuts: Element Hotels, which opened earlier this year in Dubai, and the EDITION, which will open in Abu Dhabi later this year.

Fueled by a strong demand for its diverse range of lifestyle brands, Marriott plans to expand in the UAE with the addition of more than 20 new properties in the next 5 years. The company expects this development pipeline could generate over 5,000 new jobs in the country.

2018 has been a milestone year for Marriott International in the UAE, with the company anticipating having added a total of 11 properties and over 2,600 rooms by year-end.

The design-led Aloft Hotels made its debut in Dubai with three new openings – Aloft Palm Jumeirah, Aloft Me’aisam and Aloft City Centre Deira – all within the first half the year.

The company launched its eco-conscious Element Hotels brand in the region with the opening of Element Me’aisam. In the luxury space, the Ritz-Carlton brand opened its fifth property in the UAE – The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Hamra Beach in Ras Al Khaimah.

The company also took over the operations of the Yas Island Hotel, which is scheduled to be flagged as a W Hotel early next year – marking the debut of the brand in Abu Dhabi.

Across the Middle East and Africa, Marriott currently operates 3 branded residential properties, including the Bulgari Residences in Dubai, and anticipates to more than double its residential portfolio in the region with eight projects scheduled to open by 2022.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
