IHG’s Hotel Indigo to debut in Middle East this year

Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) is set to open its premier Hotel Indigo-branded property in the Middle East in the summer of 2020.

The flagship Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown will open its doors along the banks of the Dubai Creek, a stone’s throw from a number of iconic landmarks and attractions, including one of the world’s largest retail hubs, The Dubai Mall, and Burj Khalifa.

Hotel Indigo properties offer a gateway to discover some of the world’s most inspiring locations. Each hotel brings the outside in, drawing from the local area to inspire every aspect of each hotel, from intriguing design to locally inspired menus. Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown is no exception, taking inspiration from the story of its neighbourhood areas to help guests feel part of the destination.

“We are excited to be opening the first Hotel Indigo in the Middle East,” general manager, Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown, Laura Eggleton stated. “As our first opening in the region, Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown combines the city’s heritage with the new, fresh buzz of the ever-evolving landscape through local collaborations. We’re looking forward to sharing our neighbourhood story with you.”

Each of the hotel’s 269 rooms are inspired by the story of Dubai Creek– whether that’s through the surrealist wallpaper exclusively created by local artists, bespoke shisha lamps or the wardrobes with carved wooden doors, hand-crafted in Mashrabiya style with a modern twist.

As part of the Hotel Indigo brand ethos, the hotel has supported local creatives through their close associations with the Alserkal Cultural Foundation, Tashkeel and XVA gallery. The hotel boasts over 200 pieces of art and local design as well as intricately designed carpet that adorns the hotel floors, created through a partnership with the Fatima Bint Mohammed Bin Zayed Initiative (FBMI).

Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown will also feature various stellar F&B venues, an infinity pool, and a wellness deck with a gym and yoga studio.
