Wyndham Dubai Marina, the first dedicated hotel development from leading Dubai-based property developer, The First Group, has celebrated its grand opening. The opening of the property marks the debut of the Wyndham brand in the UAE.
The four-star deluxe Wyndham Dubai Marina, which is managed by Wyndham Hotels & Resorts - the world's largest hotel management firm - marks a major milestone for The First Group, which has built its reputation on developing high-quality serviced apartments and 'aparthotels' in Dubai.

The 32-storey, 486-room property is situated in a prime location offering stunning views of the Gulf and Dubai Marina, as well as nearby Bluewater Island, which will soon be home to the world's largest Ferris wheel, the Dubai Eye.

It is expected to prove popular with business and leisure guests as it is within walking distance of the Marina's major attractions, amenities and transportation links including Dubai Metro and tram services.

Wyndham Dubai Marina boasts dining options such as the Range Grill Restaurant & Bar, Essence all-day dining outlet, Chillz Pool Bar and Café Azur Lobby Lounge. The Wyndham Club Lounge provides views overlooking the Palm Jumeirah and Arabian Gulf. There are also extensive meetings and conference facilities.

Said Danny Lubert, the company's co-founder and Joint Chairman: "In partnership with Wyndham Hotel Group, we will set new standards for affordable luxury, catering to business and leisure guests alike. Given Wyndham Hotel Group's vast global experience in hotel management, we are supremely confident Wyndham Dubai Marina will set a new benchmark for hospitality service in Dubai."

The Wyndham Hotel Group manages more than 7,800 properties in 72 countries worldwide, is one of the hospitality industry's most respected operators.
