UAE-based hospitality company Twenty14 Holdings has collaborated with French hospitality group Accor to open a new Pullman in Dubai, Business Bay.

The new hotel, named the Pullman Downtown Dubai, comprises 353 rooms and suites, a ballroom, two meeting rooms, a private boardroom, a club lounge, a spa, fitness facilities with sauna and steam rooms, a squash court, a lop pool, a children’s pool, and outdoor Jacuzzi.

It offers views of the Dubai Canal, the Dubai Skyline and the iconic Burj Khalifa, and is situated near the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), and the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition centre.

Twenty14 Holdings managing director Adeeb Ahamed said: “We are pleased to partner with Accor and be part of their strong footprint and network in the region.

“Pullman is aligned with our expectations and vision as an asset owning company, and with Accor’s loyalty programme and management expertise, we are confident that guests at our property will get to experience the best of global hospitality.”

The company has made an investment of more than $750m in assets across the Middle East, Europe, the UK and India, including Great Scotland Yard Hotel, London, Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh’s The Caledonian, and Port Muziris, Kochi, Kerala (Marriott’s first Tribute Portfolio Hotel in South Asia).

Additionally, Accor and Twenty14 Holdings are also working together to develop the dining offering at the hotel.

Recently, Qatar-based Katara Hospitality has partnered with Accor to launch Maison Delano brand in Paris.

To be located in the 8th Arrondissement in an 18th century mansion at 4 Rue d’Anjou, the new Maison Delano hotel will feature 56 rooms and suites, a restaurant and a bar in the mansion’s historical courtyard.
