Rixos, a significant partner of the French Accor Group, is getting ready to become a part of the Dubai Islands project.
Known as the largest hotel chain in Turkish tourism, Rixos has established a prominent presence with 30 hotels across 6 countries. In December of the previous year, Rixos inaugurated its 31st hotel in the United Arab Emirates, the Rixos Marina Abu Dhabi, a luxurious 5-star ultra-luxury property. Barely 9 months after the opening of this lavish establishment, which is owned and developed by entrepreneur Fettah Tamince, the brand is set to add another jewel to its crown within the country.
Adding an 8th Gem
With the significant partnership of the French Accor Group, Rixos is going to be a part of the Dubai Islands project developed by Nakheel, one of the largest real estate companies in the Gulf Region. Consequently, Rixos will gain ownership of its 8th hotel in the United Arab Emirates.
A Project by Sheikh Maktoum!
Occupying a bay with a 700-meter-long beach, the hotel will be named Rixos Dubai Islands, Hotel & Residences. Expected to be completed by 2025, the property will feature a signature Rixos spa and fitness center, infinity pools, and residential units.
Regarding the project, Nakheel's CCO, Rasha Hasan, stated, "We are committed to redefining beachfront living in Dubai and launching a project that will enhance the lives of Dubai's citizens, residents, and visitors alike. By bringing the globally renowned Rixos brand to Dubai Islands, we are creating an exclusive, family-friendly living environment that offers a luxurious seaside lifestyle combined with a metropolitan feel."
Controlled by the Dubai Emir Al Maktoum family, Nakheel generates an annual revenue of approximately 2 billion dollars, solidifying its position as the country's second-largest real estate firm. Nakheel, renowned for its globally acclaimed projects like Jumeirah Islands and Palm Islands, initiated the Dubai Islands project two decades ago. The project is even visible from space, an illustration of its grandeur and magnitude.
