Nakheel plans partnership with Centara for Deira Islands resort

The Dubai developer Nakheel is planning to partner with one of Thailand’s leading hotel groups, Centara, to create a 550-room resort at its Deira Islands development.

The resort would include a water park and be located close to Deira Mall and Deira Islands Night Souk.

Nakheel has 10 hotels in the pipeline for Dubai, with five of them on Deira Islands.

The planned partnership with Centara is Nakheel’s third joint venture for hotels on Deira Islands announced this year. The company is already working on a 750-room resort with Spain’s RIU Hotels & Resorts and a 500-room Avani resort with Thailand’s Minor Hotel Group.

Centara’s portfolio includes around 14,000 rooms across 67 hotels and resorts under six brands across Asia, Indian Ocean, Africa and the Middle East.
