Spanish hospitality holding giant, Barceló Hotel Group, has unveiled plans for the debut of its latest project – Occidental IMPZ Dubai, Conference and Events Centre – set to open in September 2018.
With close proximity to the EXPO 2020 landmark and only 30 minutes away from the Dubai airports, the new hotel will cement the brand’s presence in the Middle East, while simultaneously increasing its foothold in the region.
Occidental IMPZ Dubai, Conference and Events Centre will comprise two buildings adjacent to one another and connected via X. Both buildings – Target and Seeb – will each house 111 and 128 spacious rooms, as well as conference areas with projectors and screens.
Catering to business travellers, the guestrooms and the five meeting rooms will be equipped with cutting-edge technology, featuring Smart Automation System, Smart TVs and high-speed WiFi. The vast ballroom and foyer will make for an ideal location to host bigger themed events.
The property will also be home to an all-day dining restaurant, coffee shop, tapas sports bar, pool bar, a rooftop lounge and a multifunctional dining offering.
Recreational facilities featured at the hotel will include a fully-equipped gym and indulgent spa services, as well as two swimming pools.
“From concept to completion, Occidental IMPZ Dubai, Conference and Events Centre represents a modern and striking additional to Dubai’s hospitality scene,” CEO, Barceló Gulf (partner of Barceló Hotel Group in the Middle East), Goulam Amarsy commented. “We continue to grow in the UAE and we are adapting our strategy to suit the unique needs of the local residents, as well as international business and leisure travellers.”
Amarsy shared that there is a strong demand for Barceló in the Middle East and a desire for the distinctive design, prime locations and all-round top-quality service that brand is recognised for worldwide.
The new property is just one of eight new ventures in the pipeline for the UAE, as revealed earlier this year by chief development officer, Barceló Hotel Group, Jaime Buxó. As a pioneer for hospitality globally, Barceló Hotel Group’s vision is to provide its excellence in service across the UAE. Barceló Hotel Group currently operates two hotels in the region: Barceló Residences Dubai Marina and Occidental Sharjah Grand, and is set to open Dubai property Barceló Al Jadaf in June 2019.
