A subtle addition to a historically significant district

SESC worked as commissioning agents on behalf of Hilton Hotels & Resorts to get their latest middle east asset up and running. The project was particularly significant due to the its proximity to such a historic district.

The 326-guest-room hotel is located between Dubai International Airport and Downtown Dubai and just 100 meters from Al Jadaf Metro station. It offers easy access to the Dubai Mall, Dubai World Trade Centre, Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and other key destinations in the city, all while being just seven kilometres from the airport.

The hotel will be located next to Dubai Culture Village, an area under development, which will be dedicated to the arts. Al Jadaf is one of the most historically significant neighbourhoods in Dubai as it was the first hub for traditional dhow vessel building and repairing – putting it at the heart of the city’s vital trade routes. It remains the last location where dhows are crafted, and with significant investment, is shaping up to be a truly unique tourist destination in the region.
