DAMAC Maison Hotels & Resorts – the five-star luxury hotel service provider – is set to become one of the largest hospitality operators in the Middle East, with 6,050 keys to be completed by the end of 2017.
The company opened its first project, DAMAC Maison Dubai Mall Street in December 2013 and already has over 1,122 keys across four properties in the Burj Area of Dubai. Further projects are currently under development in Dubai, Riyadh and Doha which will take the total number of units to 6,050 across the region.
DAMAC Properties, the luxury real estate developer which owns DAMAC Maison Hotels & Resorts is showcasing the luxury service standards and exceptional suites on offer under its premium brand at the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai World Trade Centre.
“In just 18 months, DAMAC Maison Hotels & Resorts has become known for its luxury service standards offered within the comfortable surrounds of an expansive suite,” said Niall McLoughlin, Senior Vice President, DAMAC Properties. “We have been delighted with the response from our owners and guests, which has helped our expansion plans across the region, potentially making us one of the largest hospitality operators in the Middle East.”
Each unit within a project is purchased by an owner, which has the option to return the unit to DAMAC Maison Hotels & Resorts, who will manage all aspects of the unit under a rental pool scheme. Owners receive a percentage of the room rates. Those choosing to stay at a DAMAC Maison Hotels & Resorts property receive all of the services of a five-star hotel, but in the comfort of a luxury suite, with studios, one-, two- and three bedroom options available in some of the most desirable locations.
DAMAC Maison Hotels & Resorts has also agreed collaboration with Paramount Hotels & Resorts to build both hotels and hotel apartments which are styled with the ambience and flavor of the Paramount Pictures movies. DAMAC Towers by Paramount Hotels & Resorts is a hugely anticipated four-tower project being built in the Burj Area, which will house 1,080 luxury hotel apartment and a 772 key hotel. The project will open by the end of next year.
