DXB Entertainments PJSC and Merlin Entertainments Group have announced plans for a new LEGOLAND® Dubai Hotel.
The new LEGO® themed hotel to open at Dubai Parks and Resorts will be the first LEGOLAND® Hotel in the Middle East.
The LEGOLAND Dubai Hotel will be a 60:40 joint venture between DXB Entertainments PJSC, owners of Dubai Parks & Resorts, and Merlin Entertainments, and will be operated by Merlin Entertainments.
Commenting on the announcement, Raed Kajoor Al Nuaimi, DXB Entertainments’ Chief Executive Officer, said, “The addition of a LEGO themed hotel at Dubai Parks and Resorts will bring the total hospitality offering at the destination to over 750 rooms. With more than 100 rides and attractions spread across three theme parks, one water park and Six Flags Dubai opening in 2019, we expect families to spend several days at the destination to enjoy all the amazing experiences we offer. We are very pleased to partner with Merlin Entertainments to deliver a fun-filled and convenient place for families to stay as well as long-term value to our shareholders.”
Chief New Openings Officer at Merlin Entertainments John Jakobsen, added, “Themed accommodation is an increasingly important part of the holiday and short-break visit, and we’re delighted to continue our partnership with DXB with the development of this hotel – the first of its kind in the Middle East region, which will allow families and children to continue their amazing LEGOLAND experience after the Park closes.”
