DAMAC Maison Royale The Distinction Set to Open in June

April 25, 2017

DAMAC Properties, a leading luxury real estate developer in the region, today announced that the highly-anticipated DAMAC Maison Royale The Distinction, located in Dubai’s prestigious Downtown district, is set to open in June. The new ultra-luxury five-star hotel, to be operated by DAMAC’s premium hotel operator, DAMAC Maison Royale, provides luxury hospitality and accommodation where guests can indulge in a unique leisure and relaxation experience in the city of dreams.

Boasting stunning views from each of its fifty-two floors, the 305-key DAMAC Maison Royale The Distinction offers a choice of fully serviced deluxe rooms as well as one, two and three-bedroom suites that are complemented by a full kitchen. The five-star property’s amenities, including spa, recreational facilities, health club, amongst others, will ensure guests enjoy their stay at this five-star haven on the Dubai skyline and at the centre of the city’s major attractions.

Niall McLoughlin, Senior Vice President, DAMAC Properties said: “Dubai has recently reached the 100,000-room mark and has been ranked ninth among the top 10 cities with the largest supply of hotel rooms in the world. Moreover, Dubai is poised for tremendous growth and in the next three to four years, a number of changes are culminating in the lead up to Expo 2020. There is no doubt that Dubai will go from strength to strength as the city continues to develop for the future and attract more tourists to meet the growing supply of hotels. Therefore, investments in the hospitality sector within strategic locations represent one of the cornerstones of this growth.”

“For investors, this distinctive property presents a unique opportunity to own a luxury hotel room or apartment in the centre of Dubai’s most desirable district. With the number of visitors to the emirate and the demand for such accommodation in a prime location, owning such properties makes great investment sense. Dubai enjoys amongst the highest occupancy rates in the world – in the high eighties -  and it will continue to be an attractive tourist destination due to major events and expansion of leisure and entertainment offerings for years to come.”

According to the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing, Dubai attracted 14.9 million overnight visitors in 2016, registering a 5% increase over 2015, and 8% CAGR (2012-2016) since His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, launched the 2020 tourism strategy.

A rise in the number of millennials globally is also compelling the hospitality and tourism industry players to mould their offerings based on behaviour, purchasing power, and interest areas of this generation. For example, millennials prefer locations within the heart of the city for ease of navigating around.

Other attractive features of the property include the kids club, offering a wide range of activities that ensure an unforgettable stay for younger guests. Furthermore, Casper & Gambini’s will offer the finest international cuisines and culinary delights served in a relaxed atmosphere, with exceptional service.

In addition, in line with the service pillars of DAMAC Hotels & Resorts, 24-hour check-in, check-out and stay policy, free stays for children, with child-friendly facilities and entertainment, personalized services as well as “no-tipping” policy apply.
