Dubai-based developer Meraas has launched four new hotel brands called Evado, Re Vera, Vivus, and MQ that will range from luxury hotels to mid-market hotels. The first few hotel brands will be launched at Meraas’ Bluewaters Island, HotelierMiddleEast.com reports.
The hotels are on schedule to open their doors in 2018, and will be a short walk from Ain Dubai, the world’s tallest and largest observation wheel, being built the island.
The 178-key Luxury Re Vera Bluewaters Resort will have 96 serviced apartments.
Vivus Bluewaters Resort, which Meraas calls “upper upscale comprises 301 rooms and 119 serviced apartments. Guests will also have direct access to a 450-metre private beach.
Meraas group chairman Abdulla Al Habbai said: “Meraas has firmly established itself as a key innovator in the UAE through its portfolio of landmark destinations. In line with our commitment towards contributing to Dubai Tourism Vision 2020, approved by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, we have identified a opportunity to introduce new, home-grown hotel brands, across different segments.”
MQ is an “upper midscale brand” which will see the lobby as the key focus, and will combine working spaces, pop-up stores, and live music.
Re Vera (pictured) will be located in landmark buildings that are close to prominent attractions, while Evado is a collection of luxury boutique hotels, which will have no more than 80 rooms.
