Melia Opens Dubai Hotel; Launches New Brand

multi_1970

Meliá Hotels International has launched its expansion into the Arab States of the Gulf with the opening of its Meliá Hotels & Resorts brand’s first property, Meliá Dubai. Located in the traditional Bur Dubai, the hotel is close to Dubai’s main shopping and commercial districts and 10 minutes away from Dubai International Airport.

Of the hotel's dining options, we're intrigued by Titanic, which offers European signature dishes by British Master Chef Marco Pierre White. First courses include Carpaccio of Scallops with fresh ginger and coriander and Chilled Andalucian soup with langoustines. For entrees, Pierre White has fashioned a Magret of Duck Marco Polo with white peaches and sauternes roasting juices, Roast rack of lamb à la Dijonnaise with a mustard and herb crust and finally, for dessert, a hot raspberry soufflé.

The second phase of openings at Meliá Dubai will see the introduction of their signature spa concept, Yhi Spa; Signature By Sanjeev Kapoor, the Indian Master Chef’s first UAE restaurant; and “The Level,” an exclusive selection of rooms and suites offering personalized services and a private lounge with all-day chefs selection and selected beverages. Finally, Mansion nightclub will feature sets by international DJs.
