Asked who would take over operations at The Royal Amwaj — now expected to launch in 2013 —Seven Tides head of asset management and hospitality Tim Klitscher said he was unable to comment as the firm was in “exclusive and confidential discussions with an operator,” but the site also hinted that Dubai’s Emaar Hospitality Group was Seven Tides’ front runner for the contract, with plans to manage the property under The Address Hotels + Resorts brand.

The Asian-style resort on the crescent of The Palm Jumeirah will have 293 hotel rooms and 450 condominium apartments when it opens.
