MGallery announced today the signing of two landmark agreements with Khamas Group of Investments, a multi-industry investor and operator, for the opening of two upper upscale lifestyle properties in Dubai.
The 144-room MGallery Dubai Business Bay, set to open in 2021, will be situated adjacent to the upcoming Marasi Business Bay development and in close proximity to dynamic leisure projects such as the Dubai Design District and Dubai Canal.
MGallery Dubai Business Bay will occupy the same building as Mama Shelter, designed by world-renowned architects and interior designers Franklin Azzi and Thierry Gaugain. Drawing from MGallery’s focus on innovative dining concepts, the hotel will feature four distinct options including a trendy rooftop bar and restaurant, rooftop pool bar, all-day dining restaurant and executive lounge which will help establish MGallery as a lifestyle destination.
Commenting on the signing, Bader Mohamed Yousuf Bukhamas, Chairman of Khamas Group of Investment Companies said: “We are delighted and proud with this partnership for two hotels with MGallery, a brand within the Luxury and Upper Upscale portfolio of AccorHotels.”
The 164-room MGallery Bur Dubai will open to guests in August of this year, following the rebrand of an iconic existing hotel. The revitalization of this property is part of the on-going evolution of a historically significant area of Bur Dubai, home to some of the emirate’s largest heritage attractions such as the Dubai Gold Souq and Al Fahidi Historical District and new developments such as La Mer, City Walk, Al Seef and The Pearl Jumeirah.
A collection of inimitably enchanting, unique boutique hotels, the launch of the two hotels will further accelerate the expansion of the hotel operator in the Middle East, which has 90 unique addresses including flagship properties in 24 countries around the world. The Retreat Palm Dubai MGallery was the first in the Middle East in addition to becoming the first wellness-focused resort in the region when it opened its doors last year.
