By next summer, Hard Rock International is expected to open a Hard Rock Hotel at Dubai Marina in the United Arab Emirates. The 101-floor Hard Rock Dubai Marina, which will be the second tallest building in the UAE when it’s done, will include a 281-room hotel on the first 33 floors, and a entertainment venue on the top floor.
“As an ongoing effort to continue expanding the Hard Rock Hotels portfolio, we are thrilled to announce our plans to construct Hard Rock Hotel Dubai Marina with experienced partners like the Abu Dhabi Financial Group,” said Hamish Dodds, CEO of Hard Rock International. “We look forward to launching our hotel product to a region already familiar with our café brand and who embraces us.”
“We are pleased to bring the Hard Rock Hotel Dubai to the Marina 101 development at a time where Dubai’s tourism sector is experiencing continued rapid growth,” said Jassim Alseddiqi, CEO of Abu Dhabi Financial. “When choosing a hotel to be placed, we were seeking an iconic global brand boasting the same irreverent spirit as the destination it represents and found that in our collaboration with Hard Rock.”
Hard Rock Hotel Dubai Marina will also include a Rock Spa, a Body Rock workout facility, and a Rock Shop featuring Hard Rock’s music-themed merchandise.
