It’s the first hotel in the Expo 2020 area…

A brand new Aloft hotel has just opened its doors in Dubai. Found in Aviation City, it’s the first hotel to open in the new Dubai South district.

Promising a ‘tech-forward approach and a modern style’, the hotel boasts 145 loft-inspired guest rooms, four meeting rooms, a 24-hour fitness centre and outdoor splash pool.

For eating and drinking, the hotel will be home to four restaurants and bars. Nook will be the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant, serving international cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. While W XYZ and Re:mix lounge, two signature Aloft offerings will be cosy, casual spaces to grab a drink through the day or into the evening.

For travelers on the go, head to Re:fuel, a 24/7 grab and go counter, which will serve up light bites, healthy meals and snacks to go.

The Live At Aloft Hotels program will also facilitate live acoustic performances by up-and-coming artists on several occasions.

The new hotel is a short distance from Al Maktoum International Airport and the Expo 2020 site, which marked it’s two-year countdown over the weekend.

Elaine Watson, General Manager of Aloft Dubai South commented, “We’re delighted to announce the official opening of Aloft Dubai South and are excited to watch the area and neighborhoods develop over the next 12 to 18 months. Located just minutes away from Al Maktoum International Airport, we’re looking forward to opening our doors and catering to the ever-changing needs of tech-savvy business and leisure guests.”

It’s the fourth Aloft hotel to open its doors in Dubai this year, following on from openings on The Palm, adjacent to City Centre Deira and in Production City.
