In this discussion table will be involved specification studios, specialised in hospitality projects and international hotel groups from the United Arab Emirates. The professionals will deal on the current situation of the contract-hospitality market in the Arab Emirates, as well as the perspectives beyond 2020 in this important international market for the sector. This is an interesting discussion table interesting for those companies and specification studios interested in entering the UAE contract market.

The discussion table will be preceded by 2 case study presentations of outstanding hotel projects, given by 2 specification studios of this market.

Ritz Carlton Al Wadi Desert Resort

Inspired by a travellers’ journey through the desert, Kristina Zanic Consultants chose to base the refurbishment design theme for this project around Arabian culture, but with a touch of luxury. And the resulting interiors are elegant, intricate and unique.

Colliers International was tasked with the project management, which involved covering the existing open space of the reception courtyard to increase the seating capacity for the lobby lounge. The design focused on a Bedouin tent with a skylight and tree feature in the middle of the courtyard that allows natural light to come into the seating space. The Farmhouse restaurant was also redone to offer guests a farm to table dining experience, with interiors that feature barn doors, eclectic fixtures and bold colours in soft furnishings. Subtle traditional Arabian elements have been included throughout in the interior architecture.
