The contract for the four-star resort takes Nakheel’s infrastructure and construction investment at Deira Islands to nearly AED8.8 billion so far, a statement said.
Out of the 601 rooms, 114 rooms are specifically for families, covering 450 sq ft. There are also rooms for people with special needs, standard rooms, deluxe rooms, suites and 1,200 sq ft duplexes.
Nakheel chairman Ali Rashid Lootah said:
“Our joint venture with Centara underlines our commitment to working with trusted international brands to bring new hospitality concepts to Dubai, and today’s crucial milestone brings this exciting new resort ever closer. I look forward to delivering one of Dubai’s most sought-after destinations for travellers from all over the world.”
