MGallery signs brace of Dubai properties

UAE: Accor’s MGallery collection has announced the signing of two new hotels with the Khamas Group of Investments.

The agreement is for the opening of two lifestyle properties in Dubai – MGallery Dubai Business Bay and MGallery Bur Dubai.

Sami Nasser, chief operating officer, luxury brands, AccorHotels Middle East, said: “Today marks the strategic expansion of one of our signature lifestyle concepts in the Middle East. MGallery is internationally acclaimed as a collection of storied boutique hotels, standing as a gateway for guests into another world. Since its launch in the region with The Retreat Palm Dubai MGallery, we have witnessed an increasing demand for hospitality concepts with a memorable and charming, yet singular personality, rooted in its surrounding history and local culture. Through the expansion of MGallery – with the MGallery Dubai Business Bay and MGallery Bur Dubai – we hope to better cater towards this dynamic within the industry.”

He added: “As Dubai continues to grow as a world-class destination, we have seen the emergence of many different leisure and business destinations which presents an opportunity to grow the presence of our lifestyle portfolio through concepts such as MGallery, 25Hours and Mama Shelter. The expansion of MGallery into the upcoming Dubai Canal area and in Bur Dubai remains in line with our strategy to increase the reach of our most loved concepts across the most vibrant, up and coming areas within the markets in which we operate.”

The 144-room MGallery Dubai Business Bay, set to open in 2021, will be situated adjacent to the upcoming Marasi Business Bay development. The 164-room MGallery Bur Dubai will open to guests in August of this year.

Bader Mohamed Yousuf Bukhamas, chairman of Khamas Group of Investment Companies said: “We are delighted and proud with this partnership for two hotels with MGallery, a brand within the Luxury and Upper Upscale portfolio of AccorHotels.”
