Finding hotel and meetings space in Dubai for medium to large size groups will soon be less of a challenge when the Bavaria Executive Suites Dubai opens late summer 2008 with 2,100 designer suites in two 40-storey towers located on Sheikh Zayed Road within the Dubai Technology and Media Free Zone in the heart of the city’s vibrant business district.
With 2,100 luxurious 1, 2, and 3-bedroom suites ranging in size from 65 – 190sqm, offering well equipped work stations, high speed internet access, additional storage areas in all rooms and terraces from which to enjoy spectacular sunsets, Bavaria Executive Suites Dubai ensures that groups of all sizes can sleep, meet and relax under one roof. In addition, each bedroom has its own bathroom, enabling delegates to share accommodation without compromising privacy, and all suites offer a compact laundry room with washer/dryer facilities as well as full access to hotel laundry services.
Thomas Gertz, CEO Bavaria Hotels International, said, “For conferences large or small, Bavaria Executive Suites Dubai is more than a hotel; it is a flexible marketing tool, with all the components necessary for successful business under one roof. We do not merely host groups; we are partners in the delivery and execution of successful meetings and events, from before the arrival to beyond the departure. Our objective, as host hotel, is to ensure the delegates experience the very best of Dubai, and depart with a sense of achievement and fulfillment.
The extensive facilities at the Bavaria Executive Suites incorporate the following features:
• Meeting Centre: Situated on the 4th Floor, the Meeting Centre offers 6 meeting rooms for 10 to 1000 persons, terraces, powerful audio-visual equipment and wireless connectivity. The multipurpose Conference Room and 4 breakout rooms have natural daylight and access to the terrace overlooking the ocean; an option that is quite rare in Dubai.
• Business Centre, adjacent to the Meeting Centre on the 4th Floor, with fully equipped and manned offices of varying sizes, and service support provided by a trained and dedicated team, taking care of all administrative and document processing requirements.
• Business Club: delivering luxury and exclusivity to its members, with a dedicated Rooftop Business Club Lounge. Membership benefits include complimentary access to Business Club Lounges, private car park, guaranteed accommodation and complimentary upgrade in all Bavaria Hotels International properties, as well as access to the Lifestyle Fitness Club and all other wellness facilities.
• Personal Assistant Service: an exclusive service of Bavaria Hotels International to support corporate and business clients in meeting their deadlines, in the language of their choice.
Mr Gertz, added, “60% of our business will be corporate, with 30% of this coming from the MICE market. MICE Groups generally stay an average of 4 nights, with 50+ participants. At least one day consists of official meetings, with the remainder of the time being spent exploring the city either on organized excursions or personal leisure. This represents a considerable amount of money being brought into the city by Bavaria Executive Suites Dubai. The average rates we will be charging make Bavaria Executive Suites Dubai a very affordable option for groups and incentives to the region.”
Not only will it be possible for medium to large conferences to take place under one roof, the flexible suite accommodations ensure that families have the option to join delegates at no extra cost, and to enjoy a number of activities ranging from treatments in the Angsana Spa, workout in the Lifestyle Fitness Club or at the Rooftop Sports Arena, or swim in one of the two 25 m pools – with the little ones professionally cared for and entertained throughout it all in the extensive Kids Club adjoining the Angsana Spa.
All this just minutes from the Jumeirah beaches, and the city’s newest shopping malls – Ibn Battuta and Mall of the Emirates. The hotel will also be connected to the Media City station of the Dubai Metro.
Online reservations will be possible from early summer 2008, with group requests considered for arrival dates from October 2008 onwards.
