Rebranded Dubai hotel opens following revamp
Donatello Hotel Apartments team will also embark on $5m expansion soon
Donatello Hotel Apartments, Dubai, formerly the Hospitality Management Holdings (HMH)-run Coral Boutique Hotel Apartment, has reopened to guests following the renovation of its 78 suites.
Renovations to the Al Barsha property included the replacement of carpeting, wall coverings, furnishings, curtains and lighting in the guestrooms.
This is to be followed in summer 2013 by a further US $5 million worth of works to revamp public areas, including the addition of new restaurants and meeting spaces.
The management contract with HMH ended in Q4, 2012 following the owner's decision to rebrand it under its Donatello brand, including an extension of the property and the introduction of an alcohol licence.
“The re-branding and upgrading of the product will enhance our representation with the first Donatello-branded hotel in the Middle East”, said general manager Salim Touma said.
Donatello made its debut in Almaty, Kazakhstan in 2011 with its first Donatello Boutique Hotel.
In 2012, Donatello Italian Restaurant and Lounge was launched in Dubai World Trade Centre, Dubai.
