Majid Al Futtaim has recently unveiled the refurbished Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates, following a $100 million renovation project, expected to consolidate the hotel’s position as a leading luxury destination for fine dining and leisure in the UAE.
The project has seen the refurbishment of all 373 guest rooms and suites, the placement of new state-of-the-art conference and catering facilities, the opening of three new restaurants and lounges, Olea, Salero Tapas & Bodega and Noir, the re-launch of Aspen by Kempinski – the hotel’s luxury lobby lounge – as well as the enhancement of the hotel lobby. The final phase of the renovation programme will launch 20 re-designed luxury Aspen Chalets overlooking Ski Dubai that are expected to open for guests by early 2016.
CEO, Hotels at Majid Al Futtaim Properties, Simon Barlow said: “In line with our vision to create great moments for everyone every day and to remain at the top in Dubai’s evolving and highly competitive luxury hotel sector, we always embrace the very latest in design, technology and architecture. We continue to demonstrate commitment to keep all our hotels fresh and relevant through ongoing investment, innovation and property renovation. We believe the refurbishment will not only provide our guests with a new level of experience but Dubai with a new luxury landmark.”
Each guest room has also been equipped with the latest smart technology and media hubs that with the touch of an iPad, allows guests to control their television, order room service, make a restaurant reservation, book a spa treatment and access Mall of the Emirates information and promotions.
As part of the refurbishment, multi-use spaces for pre-function, breakout, boardrooms and meeting rooms have been equipped with state-of-the-art AV equipment and high-speed Internet. In addition, conference and meeting rooms have been naturally lit to improve aesthetics and encourage greater focus and alertness.
General manager, Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates, Grant Ruddiman added: “Our key priority during the refurbishment programme was to maintain our guests’ convenience in line with the Kempinski Hotel unique and world-class services. We are looking forward to our new and returning guests visiting to experience our crisp and modern new look and innovative outlets and facilities.”
