If film fans are still reeling from the failed Universal Studios in Dubai, then there’s good news with the iconic production company, Paramount, set to launch a new, movie-themed hotel in Dubai.

The announcement was made earlier yesterday at the annual Cityscape Global exhibition in Dubai.

The new Paramount Hotel Dubai, Downtown – set to be the third largest hotel in Dubai behind Atlantis and JW Marriott Marquis – promises to showcase timeless Hollywood elegance meets cool Californian lifestyle. Developers also plan to use certain elements of Paramount Pictures movies from films such as Iron Man, Transformers and The Godfather and project these in the lobby and communal areas using high tech media mapping and digital technology.

The property will also honour its own identity taking influences from the local creative communities in the UAE and becoming a platform for contemporary arts in the region.

Every floor or the 1,250-roomed hotel will also have subtle film themes, and a selection of the hotel’s elite ‘Producer’ suites will be themed on actors and films.

This marks the fourth project for Dubai developers Damac and Paramount Hotels and Resorts. The two companies are also collaborating on a beach-front hotel, Paramount Hotel Dubai, Jumeirah Waterfront, serviced villas in AKOYA, namely DAMAC Villas by Paramount Hotels & Resorts and a serviced hotel apartment project on King Fahd Road in Riyadh in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, DAMAC Towers by Paramount Hotels & Resorts.

Work on Paramount Hotel Dubai, Downtown, which will be located just off Sheikh Zayed Road in Downtown Dubai, is already underway with plans to officially open the hotel in 2018.
