Al Khoory Hotels, the hospitality arm of Dubai-based Emirati family-owned diversified business conglomerate Al Khoory Group, is getting ready to open its sixth hotel – Al Khoory Sky Garden – in Dubai as Expo 2020 has started to attract international tourists to the UAE.
The opening of Al Khoory Sky Garden comes as the tourism industry in Dubai and the UAE starts to grow after 18 months of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Group Vice-Chairman Abdullah Khoory said: “The opening of Al Khoory Sky Garden Hotel reflects our strong commitment to the UAE economy and especially the tourism industry.” Al Khoory Group is also reaching 50 years soon after the Golden Jubilee of the UAE federation.
“We prepped ourselves for the opening of Al Khoory Sky Garden Hotel during the Covid-19 pandemic – a very challenging time – which also reflects our commitment towards the long-term sustainability of the UAE economy and Dubai’s tourism industry,” he said.
“We are pleased with our readiness to serve the tourism industry and contribute to the UAE economy. Soon, Al Khoory Sky Garden will start to offer international and regional tourists the best of our hospitality services.”
Dubai welcomed 2.85 million visitors from January-July 2021 and is set to accelerate growth in the fourth quarter with events including Expo 2020 and the UAE Golden Jubilee celebrations.
Dubai ranks second globally in terms of hotel occupancy with hotels enjoying 61 per cent average occupancy levels in the first seven months of 2021, according to the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM).
Located on the Airport Road, Al Khoory Sky Garden is within walking distance of Deira City Centre, Dubai Metro and five minutes away from Dubai International Airport.
With 279 rooms and suites with premium amenities and interconnecting facilities, the hotel also features four food and beverage outlets including an all-day dining facility, spa, gymnasium, outdoor swimming pool, kids club, games room, a large ballroom and three meeting rooms.
Al Khoory Hotels is going to open two more properties in the UAE in the next few months while three hotels are currently being developed in Oman.
