A Legoland hotel is going to open in Dubai



Dubai Parks and Resorts will be making every kid’s (and let’s face it, adult’s) dreams come true when they open the region’s first ever Legoland hotel. Sweet!

While no opening date has been confirmed, we do know that it will have 250 rooms and that each room will be designed to depict a specific storyline… how cool is that? When the hotel opens, it will be the seventh of its kind, with hotels already in Malaysia, California and Florida.

The joint project between DXB Entertainments and Merlin Entertainments will spans across 300,000 sq ft of land and will be located right next to the theme park that features everything from Legoland Dubai, Motiongate Dubai and Bollywood Parks.

Speaking on the project, Merlin Entertainments’ John Jakobsen says: “Themed accommodation is an increasingly important part of the holiday and short-break visit, and we’re delighted to continue our partnership with DXB [Entertainments] with the development of this hotel, which will allow families and children to continue their amazing Legoland experience after the park closes.”

In case you’re wondering what Legoland experience Jakobsen is talking about, allow us to elaborate…

There’s Legoland Water Park which features 20 slides, a Lego pool, a build-a-raft-river, and cabana services. Perfect for Lego fanatics between the ages of 2-12 as well as families.

Then there’s Legoland Dubai which features over 40 themed Lego rides, shows and attractions and although the park claims to be primarily for kids between the ages of 2 and 12, it’s great fun for all ages. Trust us, we’ve tried them.

The park also features six themed lands which includes Factory, Imagination and Adventure. There’s also over 15,000 Lego models which includes India’s famed Taj Mahal to Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa. Ohw, and there’s over 60 million Lego bricks so that should be more than enough to keep you busy till the hotel opens.
