ALL THIS AND MORE INSIDE
Two iconic Las Vegas hotels – MGM and Bellagio – are to be built in Dubai. US-based MGM Resorts International will bring the world-famous brands to the city, which will mark their Middle East debut. It follows a deal signed with Dubaibased Wasl Hospitality, part of Wasl Asset Management Group, with the first non-gaming beachfront resort expected to open in Dubai by 2021.
MGM will provide an advisory role during the construction phase and then go on to manage the mega resort development, which will feature an MGM Hotel, MGM Residences and a Bellagio Hotel, covering an area of some 26 acres.
“This marks the first time we will offer multiple MGM luxury brands at a prime beachfront location,” said MGM Resorts president Bill Hornbuckle. The project will feature 1,000 rooms and 10 villas and will occupy the longest stretch of waterfront ever developed in Dubai. It will be located near the Burj Al Arab, initial US media reports revealed. Click here for full story
