German hotel company, Bavaria Hotels International will make its regional debut by opening the largest all-suite hotel in the Middle East in early 2006. The Bavaria Executive Suites will feature 2,100 suites, and will be located within the Dubai Technology and Media Free Zone. Featuring two 40-floor towers, connected by a secure, temperature controlled bridge, which will also offer direct access to Dubai’s forthcoming Dubai Light Rail system, the property will cater to both transient and long-term guests. “Bavaria Executive Suites is quite unique in its product conception and delivery. It is a smart product and it has been designed and built to deliver a very comfortable and secure lifestyle,” Thomas Gertz, CEO of Bavaria Hotels International, told Hotelier Middle East. “Hospitality trends indicate that there is a shifting away from the classical stereotype hotel, and there is a growing demand for added value features that give a guest more options and flexibility,” Gertz says. “The Bavaria Executive Suites will most definitely accommodate a lot of short term corporate and leisure guests. Being located at the heart of the business hub of the region allows us to offer attractive corporate and leisure packages.” The 2,100 one-, two- and three-bedroom designer suites are equipped with smart technology features such as IP telephones, plasma screen TVs and wireless connectivity, with complimentary high speed internet access. An Angsana Spa, operated by Banyan Tree, two 25-metre swimming pools and a lifestyle fitness club with a rooftop sports arena, are some of the key features. Office and meeting facilities will cater to both the MICE market and business residents in Dubai. Ten office modules will be available for short and long-term lease, while a meeting centre will include six meeting rooms capable of accommodating from 10 to 1,000 persons. “Due to the increasing mobility of the professional work force, we project that up to 40% of the 2,100 luxury suites will be occupied by medium and long-term guests, who will benefit from the competitive pricing structure. Corporate individuals and groups who will be utilising our meeting centre or who simply wish to take advantage of the outstanding location, will also contribute substantially to the occupancy,” Gertz explains. Further regional development for Bavaria Hotels International is on the cards. “We will soon announce our next new opening, which has 1,200 rooms, and is also strategically located within the MENA region,” Gertz affirms. Bavaria Hotels International specialises in the development and management of hotels worldwide. It has its headquarters in Bavaria, Germany. The company also operates two regional offices; one in Dubai and one in Beirut.
