Dubai’s flagship YOTEL Hotel, for which The HIDI Group is providing mechanical, electrical, plumbing and ELV design services, has broken ground. The 750,000 ft2 hotel is scheduled to open in 2018 and will feature 582 affordable ‘smart cabins’ and serviced apartments and amenities such as co-working and meeting spaces, a gym and a luxury pool deck. Only three other YOTEL hotels, found in New York, London and Amsterdam, are currently operational.
“We are delighted at the excellent progress we’re seeing with our first location in the Middle East,” says Hubert Viriot, CEO of YOTEL. “Dubai is one of the most visited cities in the world, and we are excited to bring affordable luxury to its visitors. The thriving hospitality market here is a natural place for our debut into the serviced apartment segment, delivering outstanding quality at an affordable price.”
Conceived for busy international travellers, YOTEL hotels are conveniently located close to global transportation hubs, including airports and monorail stations, within their respective cities. Expanding rapidly, eight new hotels are under development globally.
