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.

There are clear opportunities available and we are keen to take advantage of this lucrative sector.”
