Dubai to get world’s largest hotel

By Staff

Dubai-based conglomerate Al Habtoor Group plans to build world’s largest hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai, which would be nearly 25 per cent bigger than the Atlantis hotel located at Palm Jumeirah in terms of number of rooms.

The hotel will add over 2,000 rooms and suites to the emirate’s burgeoning supply of rooms while Atlantis houses nearly 1, 539 rooms, Al Habtoor told The National.

The chairman is sanguine about the emirate’s hospitality and tourism sectors and betting on its growth prospects.

"Hotels are doing well. There is improvement - 2010 was good, and 2011 will be even better," he said.

The group might go alone and not seek any partnerships to finance the UAE’s biggest hotel.

"I hate partnerships," he said.
