New Dubai-based operator Abidos Hotels has opened its first property, Abidos Hotel Apartments, in Dubailand.

The upscale tower, built by Al Shafar General Contracting (ASGC), features 132 apartments offering one, two- and three bedrooms. Each unit has a living room, a private balcony and a kitchen.

The property also features a 24-hour reception, all-day dining restaurant MnM, ‘Energize’ gym, rootop swimming pool, wireless internet in public areas and a mobile business centre.

ASGC president Emad Azmy said the project would cater to an increasing demand for luxury hotel apartments in the region.

“As expectations rise, convenient location, high-speed Internet connection, widescreen televisions, five-star service, the option to cook your meal, order room service or dine in a restaurant, full range of business and recreation facilities – all play a crucial role in choosing a hotel,” said Azmy.

“The Abidos brand has been conceptualised to provide quality lifestyle at affordable rates,” he added.“Owing to the ever-increasing demand, Dubai continues to be a wide-open market for hotel developers. There are clear opportunities available and we are keen to take advantage of this lucrative sector.”
The property is located close the Dubai Academic City in the residential area of Dubailand, one of the Gulf emirate’s most ambitious mixed-use developments, announced at the height of the real estate bubble.
