Checking In: Radisson Red Hotel Dubai Silicon Oasis
The Digital Park property is the group’s first Red property in the region, designed to suit the modern traveller
Comprising 112 rooms and suites and 59 apartments, Radisson Red Hotel Dubai Silicon Oasis is located in Dubai Digital Park. Radisson Hotel Group’s ﬁrst lifestyle hotel, the property is also Dubai’s ﬁrst smart city project built with the latest AI and IOT technologies.
Doubling up as community social hubs, the hotel’s signature dining outlets include a permanent food truck Van Rouge, all-day restaurant and live entertainment hub OUIBar + Terrace and alfresco hang out Red Roof. Ideal for midday snacks or grab and go breakfast, Van Rouge serves up fresh ingredients in wraps and sandwiches along with frothy coffees and just-pressed juices. Regular live music, sports game streaming and bold international flavours makes OUIBar + Terrace Dubai Digital Park’s resident hot spot. RedRoof bar offers Red guests a day to night hang out offering everything from healthy salads by the pool to evening sundowners accompanied by a live DJ.
Delivering statement design, Radisson Red worked with a wealth of local talent from mural specialist Art Painting Lab to curator and sculptor Neel Shukla, to create a vibrant space. Deviating from run-of-the-mill hotel art, walls are the labour of four local artists each one with their own inspiration and design. Their work breathes life into the property and creates backdrops for Instagram moments. Highlights include shower units complete with a microphone mosaic and the hotel's signature falcon recreated in various ways – in graphic form on an in-room mural and as a gleaming red and metal sculpture perched outside the main entrance.
Staying true to its Dubai Digital Park location, the hotel boasts the latest technology to keep its guests happy. The lobby’s interactive digiwall features hotel information and serves as a city guide with information about the best hidden gems in Dubai. There's even a selfie cam which allows guests to post direct to their feeds. In room, guests are encouraged to bring their own devices and stream their own shows via slickly designed portals. For everything from fashion shows to corporate conferences, a dedicated HUB is kitted out with the latest software for a fresh take on meetings and events spaces.
Targeted towards millennials and guests with a millennial mind set, the first Radisson Red property opened in Brussels, Belgium on April 18, 2016. The brand currently has 23 properties in operation or in the pipeline.
