Tryp Abu Dhabi opens ahead of Dubai hotel
Tryp by Wyndham Dubai originally set to be region's debut of lifestyle brand
Tryp by Wyndham Abu Dhabi has opened ahead of Dubai’s Tryp by Wyndham, which was set to introduce the brand to the region.
The Dubai property is now set to open in 2017, having previously been announced for 2016.
Tryp by Wyndham Abu Dhabi is the first Tryp-branded property in the Middle East and was inaugurated on Sunday night in the capital city by Sheikh Musallam Bin Ham Al Amri during an opening ceremony.
The lifestyle hotel has 146 rooms and is being operated under a franchise agreement with Gromaxx Hotels Group.
The property is located next to the Sheikh Khalifa Energy Complex. It has a spa, gym, outdoor pool and free WiFi throughout the property.
F&B facilities include an all-day dining outlet, an Indian restaurant and room service.
Wyndham describes the upper-midscale Tryp brand as “cosmopolitan, select-service brand”.
A spokesperson for Wyndham said: “Starting life in Spain, the brand has a Mediterranean flavour and an energetic spirit, where passionate employees are on hand to serve passionate travellers.”
A feature of the brand is ‘Own the City’ and Wyndham Hotel Group regional vice president MEA Bani Haddad commented in an interview with Hotelier: “It will be very vibrant and there’s a big emphasis on staff and their knowledge of the city”.
The previously announced Tryp by Wyndham Dubai is now anticipated to be the second Tryp in the UAE when it opens its doors in 2017, having originally been expected to open in 2016.
Tryp by Wyndham Dubai will have 672 rooms and will be operated by Wyndham Hotel Group under a management contract.
It is being developed by Omega I, a subsidiary of British-owned developer The First Group.
