Nakheel and RIU Hotels & Resorts release construction tender for Deira Islands hotel


Nakheel and RIU Hotels & Resorts have joined forces to develop an 800-key, beachfront resort and waterpark at Deira Islands in Dubai, and thus, have released the construction tender for the development.

Valued at $182.4 million, the resort will represent RIU’s entry into the Middle East market. It is scheduled to reach completion in Q4 of 2019 and will present visitors to Dubai with a new hospitality concept; a mid-scale, family-orientated, all-inclusive beachfront resort.

As for facilities, the property will be home to seven F&B outlets, three swimming pools, a fitness complex, a children’s club and a waterpark. In an ideal location, a handful of new attractions, including Deira Mall, Deira Islands Night Souk and Deira Boulevard, will be within arm’s reach.
