James Riley, Group Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group and His Excellency Hesham Al Qassim, CEO of wasl Asset Management Group

The duty-free zone of Dubai is a shopper’s paradise, with miles of pristine beach and luxe hotels. Here too much is never enough. Little wonder then that yet another established hotel marque has further extended their portfolio.

Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has announced today that it will manage a second luxury hotel and branded residences in Dubai which is set to open in late 2020. The hotel, located in downtown Dubai, will complement Mandarin Oriental Jumeira Beach, Dubai, the Group’s previously announced urban resort which is currently under construction on the beachfront and due to open in the fourth quarter of 2018. Both hotels are owned and developed by wasl Asset Management Group.

The hotel will be the anchor of a 63-storey, mixed-use building, to be known as wasl tower, located on Sheikh Zayed Road. The property will have direct access to the area’s business and leisure attractions, including Dubai Opera, Burj Park and Dubai Mall.

The downtown Mandarin Oriental hotel will feature 257 spacious and contemporary guestrooms, suites and serviced apartments, which will be located on floors 16 to 38 of the tower, providing outstanding views over downtown Dubai and the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. The accommodation will be designed to reflect local culture, with features inspired by Mandarin Oriental’s Asian heritage.

The Group will also manage 144 Residences at Mandarin Oriental, located on the tower’s upper floors, which will provide some of the most luxurious private homes in the city. The Residences will have their own private access, with dedicated facilities including a Resident’s Lounge, while also benefiting from Mandarin Oriental’s legendary service and direct access to the hotel.

Both Mandarin Oriental hotels are within easy reach of the city’s two airports, being 20 minutes from Dubai International Airport and 40 minutes from Dubai South – Al Maktoum International Airport.
