With the growing number of tourists visiting Dubai for business and leisure, demand for quality hotels is surging along with room rates.

The emirate’s Al Barsha area will soon be home to a new, 228-keys Corp Al Khoory Hotel, which will be managed by HMH (Hospitality Management Holdings), the company said in a media statement today.

HMH has signed a new management contract to operate the Corp Al Khoory Hotel in Al Barsha – Dubai, which is owned by Mohammed Tayyeb Khoory and Sons.

Laurent A. Voivenel, CEO, HMH, said: “We are thrilled to have an opportunity to operate another fantastic hotel in Dubai for Mohammed Tayyeb Khoory and Sons. We are delighted to build on our strong relationship with the Al Khoory family for whom we already manage two superb properties namely Coral Al Khoory Hotel Apartments – Dubai and Corp Executive Al Khoory Hotel – Al Wasl and are truly grateful to them for having given us this latest project. Their exceptional experience in developing quality hotels will help us deliver yet another fabulous address for travellers to Dubai.”

Scheduled to open in first quarter of 2016, Corp Al Khoory Hotel in Al Barsha – Dubai will be located in Al Barsha and will feature all standard facilities. The property will offer multiple F&B outlets, including an international all-day-dining restaurant and a lobby lounge. It will also house a conference hall as well as a superb spa and swimming pool.
