Developer Emaar expects to open its first Rove hotel near the massive theme park under construction on the outskirts of Dubai.
The 458-room, mid-market Rove At The Park will open adjacent to Dubai Parks and Resorts in Jebel Ali. The company did not announce an opening date.
Rove Hotels expects to operate 10 hotels in Dubai with more than 2,660 rooms ahead of Expo 2020 in partnership with Meraas Holding.
The first property, Rove Downtown Dubai, is expected to open this year with 420 rooms across 14 floors. Other locations earmarked for Rove hotels include Al Jafiliya, Oud Metha, Port Saeed and Dubai Marina.
The Rove At The Park will be close to Palm Jebel Ali, midway between Dubai and Abu Dhabi International Airports. About 30 per cent of the rooms will be interconnected to encourage guests who come as families.
Dubai Parks and Resorts is scheduled to open the theme park complex this year. It will include Motiongate Dubai, inspired by Hollywood films, Legoland and Bollywood Parks to provide a showcase for Bollywood films. The complex will also feature a Legoland Water Park, the Lapita Hotel and retail space.
