New waterpark planned for Dubai
A luxury 550-room resort is planned for Dubai Deira Islands and, great news for big kids across the city, it’s going to come complete with a waterpark. The beachfront resort, which is a collaboration between Nakheel and Centara Hotels & Resorts, will see 6,400 new shops, restaurants and cafes open, as well as entertainment destinations.
The resort and waterpark is expected to attract plenty of people to Deira Islands, and being as it’s within easy reach of Deira Mall and Deira Islands Night Souk, the area is expected to become a hub for tourists and residents.
Nakheel is on an aggressive expansion mission at the moment, and this project is just one of ten which have been announced in Dubai – five of them are on Deira Islands. These new openings are expected to add a whopping 40km to Dubai’s coastline.
"We are committed to partnering with reputable international hotel brands to bring new tourism concepts to Dubai in line with the Government of Dubai's tourism vision, and our joint venture with Centara is another fine example,” said Nakheel chairman Ali Rashid Lootah. “We are delighted that one of Thailand's biggest, most popular hotel operators has chosen to invest in Dubai and help us create yet another unique offering at Deira Islands."
We don’t yet know what date the project is likely to be complete, but the prospect of another waterpark in the city is extremely exciting.
