Dubai will be home to the world's first Lego-themed hotel, where undoubtedly, everything will be awesome.
Although details of the hotel have not been released yet, it will be built as a part of expansion activities scheduled to take place at Legoland Dubai from 2018.
The hotel, according to officials from Dubai Parks and Resorts, will be the first of its kind in the region, and the fifth globally.
Paul La France, chief projects officer, Dubai Parks and Resorts told Construction Week: “As a part of our expansion strategy, we plan to have a Lego-themed hotel in the future, mostly in 2018. I can’t divulge any details right now but it will be the first of its kind in the region."
Legoland Dubai, which is expected to open to the public next year, will occupy approximately 27 hectares of space, and will include over 40 rides, shows and attractions set in six themed lands – City, Adventure, Kingdom, Create, Factory, and Miniland, featuring buildings and landmarks from the Middle East. More than 60m Lego bricks will be required for the construction of the park, and will be used to recreate buildings and depictions of landmarks from across the Middle East.
The entertainment venue will form a part of the $2.7bn (AED10.54bn), three theme park leisure development, first announced in November 2012.
