AWARD-WINNING CONRAD DUBAI CELEBRATES ITS FIRST YEAR ANNIVERSARY
AWARD-WINNING CONRAD DUBAI CELEBRATES ITS FIRST YEAR ANNIVERSARY
Dubai, UAE, October 2014 – Conrad Dubai, a stylish haven located on Sheikh Zayed Road in the heart of cosmopolitan Dubai, is excited to celebrate its first year anniversary. The 58 eight story hotel with 555 rooms boasts six remarkable restaurants and bars for its discerning guests. The hotel, which fits into the luxury tier of Hilton Worldwide’s group portfolio, has won seven respectable hospitality awards, a testament to its successful first year. These accolades include ‘Middle East’s Leading New Hotel’ at the World Travel Awards; ‘Best Business Hotel’ at MENA Travel Awards, ‘Best New Hotel’ at the Middle East Hotel Awards and the ‘Certificate of Excellence Award’ by TripAdvisor.
World-class dining and entertainment forms the foundation of Conrad Dubai with its exceptional culinary concepts that all have their own identity, feel and tone. A number of the outlets have succeeded in different categories at the Ahlan! Hot 100 Awards, Time Out Restaurant Awards, and Restaurant and Bar Design Awards for their sophisticated surroundings. Cave, the trendy wine bar, stood out in the ranking with TripAdvisor and was rated 90 out of 5,574 restaurants in Dubai. Particularly popular, especially for group bookings, is Purobeach Urban Oasis, which is the biggest elevated pool deck in Dubai at 5,500m2 and located 40m above street level.
The hotel also offers 4,400m2 of inspiring MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions) space, which counts as one of the largest in the GCC. With two impressive adjoining ballrooms for up to 1,100 visitors, 11 meeting rooms and three boardrooms, as well as close proximity to the World Trade Center, Conrad Dubai’s MICE offering is highly sought after. Guests will not struggle to find a parking in the second largest automated car park in the world, with a capacity of 1053 cars and then arriving on a 32m long escalator, making it the longest in the UAE. The hotel has also become a wedding destination with key features such as the only ballroom in Dubai with a car lift for bridal arrival or car showcases, capable of carrying 4.0 tons.
General Manager Andreas Jersabeck commented: “We are delighted that we’ve built excellent brand awareness in our inaugural year and our month on month performance continues to see an upward trajectory. To have received so many accolades in such a short space of time, I only have my 700-strong team members from 70 nations to thank. Each of them takes the time to understand the wants, needs and desires of our guests that make their experiences exceptional and unique,” adding “smart luxury is our focus, where guests are offered a one-of-a-kind experience and a service that is much more than personal, it is intuitive, individually tailored, intelligently planned and flawlessly executed. Our concierges also offer unrivalled connections to enjoy exclusive access and an opportunity to connect with the local culture here in the UAE.”
Of the 144 nationalities, which visited in the last year to enjoy the contemporary guest rooms, Saudi Arabia topped the charts in terms of occupancy figures and Kuwait was the other notable GCC nation. The United Kingdom led the international visitor figures, with the United States and Germany, not far behind. The Indian Subcontinent produced strong results but two continents, which were particularly notable in visitor numbers, were Africa and Australia because of the stopover popularity with the Qantas and Emirates airlines partnerships.
Recent records have shown leisure travelers made up 37% of the business, corporate business travelers 26%, and 25% are MICE bookings. The HHonors loyalty program has supported business and customer loyalty and retention; 35% of guests are members.
Conrad Dubai sets the scene for a new generation of global travelers for whom life, business and pleasure seamlessly intersect and where they have the luxury of being themselves.
