Minor Hotel Group to open two new United Arab Emirates hotels in 2018
The Minor Hotel Group will open two new properties in the United Arab Emirates in 2018. Anantara Jebel Dhanna and AVANI Jebel Dhanna will both be located in the Al Gharbia region of Abu Dhabi, offering a total of 290 guest rooms and an array of facilities including gourmet restaurants, a luxury spa, fitness centres, and swimming pools.
The Minor Hotel Group has announced it will open two new properties in Abu Dhabi under its Anantara and AVANI brands in 2018. Located on the coast of the Al Gharbia region in Abu Dhabi, Anantara Jebel Dhanna and AVANI Jebel Dhanna will offer a total of 290 guest rooms and suites. Dhabi Contracting LLC is the developer of the two new hotels and its architecture and interior design will be led by Aecom.
Anantara Jebel Dhanna Villas will have 20 One-Bedroom Villas, 38 Two-Bedroom Villas and two beautiful Three-Bedroom Villas. Facilities at the new Anantara hotel include two restaurants, a pool bar, a fitness centre, a swimming pool and an Anantara Spa with an array of pampering signature treatment and services.
Next to the hotel will be the AVANI Jebel Dhanna Hotel with 230 guest rooms including 170 Deluxe Rooms and 60 Superior Rooms with kitchenettes. Guests can enjoy facilities including several restaurants, a fitness centre, and a swimming pool. The two hotels will offer shared facilities such as flexible meeting and events space, a kid’s club and outdoor play areas.
“Minor Hotel Group is already well established in Abu Dhabi through our existing Anantara portfolio in the city, desert and on Sir Bani Yas Island and we are excited to today announce the first AVANI in Abu Dhabi, to be developed alongside what will be our sixth Anantara,” stated Dillip Rajakarier, the Chief Executive of the Minor Hotel Group.
The Anantara brand was established 15 years ago and it currently operates 35 hotels and resorts across 11 countries, including six hotels in the United Arab Emirates with five in Abu Dhabi and one in Dubai.
“We are looking forward to partnering with Dhabi Contracting in this exciting new project.”
AVANI announced in September last year that it would make its debut in the UAE in 2018 with the development of a resort in Dubai.
Jebel Dhanna is a region located close to the ferry departure point for Sir Bani Yas Island, 240 kilometres from Abu Dhabi city. The under-developed Jebel Dhanna peninsula has a royal palace, an industrial area, and new hotel developments.
