His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum Inaugurates The Oberoi, Dubai
November 5, 2013
The ribbon cutting ceremony was officiated by guests of honor Sheikh Adel Al Aujan, Chairman of Aujan Group Holding, and Mr. P.R.S. Oberoi, Executive Chairman of The Oberoi Group.
Sheikh Adel Aujan, Chairman, Aujan Group Holding, said: “The Oberoi Group's commitment to excellence, attention to detail and personalized service makes them one of the leading hospitality providers worldwide and an ideal partner for Aujan. With The Oberoi, Dubai now open, we look forward to contributing to Dubai's vision for the Expo 2020, while providing visitors with a unique hospitality experience.”
Dubai-based Aujan Group Holding, owner and developer of The Oberoi, Dubai, is the parent company to a number of regional and international businesses active in a wide range of industry sectors, including soft drinks, packaging materials, hospitality, and real estate.
Mr. P.R.S Oberoi said: “The Oberoi, Dubai is The Oberoi Group's first property in the UAE so this occasion of the inauguration of the hotel represents a significant milestone for the company and for me personally. When the hotel opened in June we promised that it heralded a new era of luxury in the UAE. I believe that we have delivered on this promise with a team that offers the exceptionally attentive, consistent and warm personalized service for which The Oberoi Group is known worldwide.”
The Oberoi, Dubai is a contemporary luxury hotel that embodies height, light and space. The property overlooks the iconic Burj Khalifa and all of the spacious 252 luxury rooms and suites feature floor to ceiling windows with spectacular views of the city's skyline. The hotel offers three signature restaurants, Umai, which features contemporary Asian cuisine, Ananta, the specialty Indian restaurant and Nine7One, the world cuisine restaurant, a 24-hour spa and a Wellness Centre with a gymnasium and an infinity swimming pool. Every guest has access to a personal butler and Les Clefs d'Or concierge services in keeping with The Oberoi Group's ethos of ‘service without compromise'. The hotel is located at The Oberoi Centre in Business Bay in Dubai, in close proximity to Downtown Dubai, Dubai International Financial Centre and Dubai Mall.
The Oberoi, Dubai opened its doors on 15 June 2013 and is one of the first hotels in Dubai to be awarded an ‘A' grade by the Dubai Municipality within the first six months of opening. It is already ranked number 9 out of all the hotels in Dubai on TripAdvisor, testament to the positive response from guests since the opening. The hotel's design has received recognition with Wallpaper* Magazine short listing it for the Annual Best Urban Hotels 2013 – the only hotel in the UAE featured - and it was included in Executive Travel's list of ‘Most Spectacular Hotel Lobbies'. General Manager, Karim Bizid, who has witnessed the growth of Dubai over the past two decades, heads a team of over 400 staff from 31 countries. His senior management team includes Executive Chef Dirk Haltenhof, who was recently named ‘Innovation Chef of the Year' at the Pro Chef Middle East Awards.
The Oberoi Group's portfolio includes properties in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, as well as hotels in India, Indonesia, Mauritius. Oberoi Hotels & Resorts, a subsidiary of The Oberoi Group, was recently voted the World's Best Hotel Brand by readers of Travel + Leisure. The Oberoi, Dubai is the result of a partnership with Rani Investment, the Dubai based investment holding firm for Aujan Group Holding.
