Emaar Hospitality Group has expanded the portfolio of hotel projects under its Vida Hotels and Resorts brand, with the new Vida Za’abeel.
Za’abeel is a mixed-use development in the heart of Dubai, overlooking the Zabeel Park, and will feature residences, commercial offices, hotels and leisure attractions. Vida Za’abeel is at the heart of Za’abeel, with direct views of the Dubai Frame and Burj Khalifa in Downtown Dubai, and Dubai Creek Tower in Dubai Creek Harbour.
A twin-tower development of 70 and 68 storeys, Vida Za’abeel will be home to the 220-room Vida Za’abeel hotel and Vida Residences Za’abeel, a collection of serviced apartments in 1, 2 and 3-bedrooms.
Olivier Harnisch, CEO of Emaar Hospitality Group, said: “Vida Za’abeel is a significant addition to our portfolio of hotel projects that stands out for its central location and spectacular views of the city’s landmarks. With its focus on convenience, creativity and connectivity, Vida Za’abeel will add to the choice of hotel guests and discerning customers who are seeking a vibrant and social hub were inspiring minds can create and connect.”
Vida Residences Za’abeel will offer a wide range of amenities for its residents including gyms, multi-purpose halls and indoor kids play areas, opening out to landscaped terraces. Individually designed courts, gardens and pools add to the identity of the residential tower and the hotel. For the convenience of residents, the development also has about 3,000 square metres for retail use, including a supermarket.
