Cityland Group, headquarted in Dubai, revealed that it’s planning to develop three and four-star hotels in Dubailand.

The hotels will be located adjacent to the company’s upcoming AED 1.2 billion Cityland Mall in the same area, a company official told Zawya.

“We have dedicated another piece of land adjacent to the mall where we plan to build three 3 and 4-star properties. We are still working on the conceptual designs,” Fahimuddin Sharfuddin, chief executive officer and board member at Cityland Group, said at a press conference in Dubai on Tuesday according to the report.

However, Sharfuddin went onto say that the company is definitely developing three hotels as it views Dubailand as a growing tourist hub, but he noted that it’s "too early" to commit to launch dates.

“The area has destinations like IMG World, Global Village and Dubai Miracle Garden, and with new tourism-related projects planned for this area and no hotels nearby, we believe that setting up hotels makes sense,” added Sharfuddin.

The mall is on track to be completed by Q4 of 2018, the company said in a statement.
