AVANI’s plans for third Dubai property

The rapidly expanding AVANI brand will establish a third location in Dubai by 2020, having announced plans for a 48-storey new-build hotel adjacent to the Dubai Marina.

The 527-key property is being constructed by Dubai conglomerate Alfahim and will involve both AVANI hotel suites and residences overlooking the city’s iconic Palm Jumeirah.

The suites and residences will offer floor-to-ceiling windows and living areas with private terraces that provide sweeping views of The Palm or the city. They will range from 45m2 to 180m2, catering to a mix of leisure, corporate and extended stay guests.

“When it opens in 2020, the impressive AVANI Hotel Suites & Branded Residences will be our third property in Dubai, signalling the brand’s steady growth in the region as well as around the world,” said AVANI vice president Alejandro Bernabe, referring to the existing AVANI Deira Dubai and the planned AVANI Ibn Battuta Dubai, due to open in late 2019.

Facilities at the new property will include a gym and lap pool, an AVANISPA, an all-day dining restaurant, a casual dining outlet and a bar connected to a swimming pool. Its 263 residences will be marketed to investors as a sale and lease-back product, with a mix of one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom options.

Launched by Minor Hotels in 2011, AVANI Hotels & Resorts currently has 23 properties in operation in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Portugal and Australasia.
