InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) launches its boutique hotel brand Hotel Indigo in the UAE with the signing of a management agreement for a new, meticulously designed 285-room Hotel Indigo in Dubai. Located in the upcoming Business Bay District near the world renowned Burj Khalifa, The Dubai Mall and the emerging Design District, the hotel’s design, food & beverage, amenities and services will reflect the area’s vibrant business, cultural and high-end residential community.
Featuring an infinity edged pool boasting unparalleled views of the world’s tallest building, a fitness centre and meeting space, the hotel is set to cater to well-travelled guests looking for a unique and individual hotel experience combined with exceptional facilities, dining and great service. This is exactly what Hotel Indigo provides – the style and flair of a boutique hotel with the reassurance and quality that a leading hotel group offers.
An all-day dining restaurant, delicatessen, specialty restaurant and bar will provide guests and locals with a great neighbourhood dining destination in the heart of Dubai's Business Bay. The rooftop pool terrace, lounge, bar and restaurant will also provide relaxing spaces for guests to unwind in.
Pascal Gauvin, Chief Operating Officer, India, Middle East & Africa, IHG, said: “Hotel Indigo is one of the fastest growing boutique hotel brands in the world and we know our guests love the unique neighbourhood story each Hotel Indigo property is designed to reflect. When complete in 2017, we are confident Hotel Indigo Dubai Business Bay will be one of the preferred hotels amongst travellers to Dubai, whether they visit on business or leisure," he added.
IHG currently has 18 hotels open in the UAE, with another 10 hotels due to open in the next three to five years. Hotel Indigo Dubai Business Bay will be the first Hotel Indigo in the UAE and second in the Middle East, joining Hotel Indigo Riyadh King Abdullah Financial District in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia which is set to open in 2016. The company opened the first hotel under the brand in South East Asia – Hotel Indigo Bangkok Wireless Road – earlier this year.
There are currently 62 Hotel Indigo hotels around the world and 62 hotels in IHG's global pipeline due to open in the next three to five years.
