Dubai-based Seven Tides Hospitality has signed a partnership with Preferred Hotels & Resorts, a global provider of sales, marketing and distribution services to independent luxury hotels. Dubai’s latest luxury hotel, which is set to open in Q4 2016, will be showcased through Preferred’s online booking platform, which generates over US$1 billion in reservations annually.
As part of an roster of high profile international brands, DUKES Dubai will have the opportunity to capitalise on Preferred’s 48-year tourism industry pedigree, with access to its sales and marketing expertise and network in 35 offices worldwide.
“Our new partnership with Preferred Hotels & Resorts is further endorsement of the huge potential of DUKES Dubai as we count down to our launch later this year. The Middle East market is fast becoming a strong financial contributor to the company’s overall growth and the addition of DUKES Dubai to their portfolio is a win-win situation for both parties, with Preferred Hotels & Resorts generating more than US$1 billion in revenues for its 650 plus partners in 2015, a notable increase of 15% on 2014 figures,” said Debrah Dhugga Managing Director of DUKES COLLECTION
Located on the west trunk of Palm Jumeirah, DUKES Dubai will deliver an upscale blend of cosmopolitan luxury twinned with British charm and tradition across 279 guestrooms including 64 stylish suites and the women-only Duchess Floor plus 227 fully furnished hotel apartments, along with six distinctive dining experiences and extensive landscaped leisure facilities including a private beach club and spa.
