DUBAI, United Arab Emirates—Wyndham Hotel Group announced plans for the first TRYP by Wyndham hotel in the Middle East, following the signing of a management agreement with Omega I, a subsidiary of British-owned developer The First Group.
The property is currently planned to be the select-service brand’s largest in the world upon opening in Dubai, anticipated for late 2016.
The announcement, which will see the 672-room TRYP by Wyndham Dubai developed in the city’s TECOM district, comes just months after the two companies revealed plans to introduce the first upscale Wyndham Hotels and Resorts property to the United Arab Emirates in the exclusive Dubai Marina in the next three years.
The four-star TRYP by Wyndham Dubai will be located in the heart of the Al Barsha South business district, within easy reach of attractions including Mall of the Emirates and The Palm Jumeirah.
Hotel facilities will include expansive meeting space, a spa and gymnasium, and a wide variety of food and beverage outlets including all-day dining and speciality restaurants, as well as a coffee shop, lounge area, and bar.
With construction already underway, the hotel is expected to create some 500 jobs in the city and will be managed by Wyndham Hotel Group (UK) Limited, or one of its affiliates, adding to Wyndham Hotel Group’s growing portfolio of managed hotels around the world.
“We are delighted about our expanding partnership with Wyndham Hotel Group and what it will mean for our owners,” commented The First Group’s co-founder and joint-chairman, Danny Lubert. “Thanks to Wyndham’s extensive global reach, we know this collaboration will have a positive impact on the success of our hotel properties, in turn, spelling higher demand and occupancy levels and great returns for our investors.”
