Morgans Hotel Group Co., owner of the Hard Rock Hotel Casino in Las Vegas, announced development of Delano Dubai, scheduled to open by 2012.
Delano Dubai will consist of a three-building complex overlooking the iconic Palm Jebel Ali, with panoramic views of the Persian Gulf, the open spaces of the waterfront and beachfront parks.
The hotel is expected to have approximately 200 guest rooms and 100 branded residences, and will include a restaurant, bar and spa.
Adjacent to the property will be another 360 residences with hotel services, rising 44 stories over the waterfront.
Visitors and residents of the complex will have access to a retail promenade lined with luxury boutiques, stretching to the beachfront. Plans also call for a vast cabana bar built into the pier that will offer a dock for boats and gondolas.
Morgans also plans to build a Delano hotel at Boyd Gaming’s now-delayed Echelon development in Las Vegas.
