Marriott Bonvoy has expanded its portfolio in the UAE with the opening of two hotels, Aloft Al Mina and Element Al Mina, in Dubai.

The two new hotels are located on Sheikh Rashid Road in the Al Raffa neighbourhood Dubai.

Aloft Al Mina has 192 guestrooms and suites that are equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi, 55in flatscreen televisions and bathrooms with walk-in showers and more.

The hotel also offers signature brand amenities such as W XYZ Bar, the Re:mix Lounge for locals and travellers, and a 24/7 Re:charge fitness centre with advanced equipment, as well as the all-day restaurant, MIX, an outdoor infinity pool, and events and meeting spaces.

Element Al Mina is designed for holidaymakers, business travellers and longer staying guests. It features a collection of 96 studios, and one and two-bedroom apartments.

All the apartments in the hotel feature a fully equipped kitchen, a spa-inspired bathroom, oversized closets and the signature Heavenly bed.

Additionally, the hotel boasts a compact meeting room and an advanced fitness centre that is open 24 hours.

Marriott International UAE Area vice-president Sandeep Walia said: “Dubai is a thriving destination for leisure and business travellers who seek original experiences.

“Aloft Hotels and Element Hotels are two distinctive brands that deliver a fresh approach to design, streamlined and warm service, all at an attractive price point.

“Aloft Hotels’ eclectic spaces thrive off a bold design and live music programming, while Element’s ergonomic design and eco-conscious ethos speaks to today’s healthy, active traveller.”

Last month, Marriott International reached an agreement to debut its JW Marriott brand in Madrid, Spain in 2022.
