UAE: Time Hotels Management has signed an agreement to operate Dunes Hotel Apartments’ three properties in Dubai.

Time Hotels took over day-to-day operations of the properties following the signing of a management agreement on January 24 in Dubai between Mohamed Awadalla, CEO of Time Hotels and Abdallah Mohamed Jaber Al Harbi, owner of Dunes Hotel Apartments.

Awadalla said: "Our partnership with Dunes Hotel Apartments further reinforces our growth strategy to expand our footprint in the UAE with further openings in Dubai, and Sharjah, as well as other properties across the region in Saudi Arabia and Egypt - taking our total portfolio to 20 properties by the end of 2020. Time Hotels has a great deal of experience across the UAE, and more importantly an in-depth understanding of how to add value and drive in business."

Dunes Hotel Apartment Al Barsha comprises 83 rooms, while Dunes Hotel Apartments Al Qusais features 108 rooms and Dunes Hotel Apartments Oud Metha has 80 rooms in total. All three properties include studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments - with the Al Barsha property also offering three-bedroom penthouse apartments.

Each property features a Dunes Delight restaurant which serves Middle Eastern, Arabic, Indian and Chinese cuisine. Guests also have access to a health and fitness centre with a fully-equipped gym and separate male and female steam rooms; heated outdoor swimming pool; a business centre and 24-hour reception and maintenance service.
All three properties will undergo a rebrand this month, becoming Time Dunes Hotel Apartment Al Barsha, Time Dunes Hotel Apartments Oud Metha and Time Dunes Hotel Apartments Al Qusais.

Al Harbi, owner, Dunes Hotel Apartments, said: "Time Hotels was appointed to manage all three Dunes Hotel Apartments in Dubai, because it is a dynamic and flexible hospitality company, with a wealth of experience, successfully running midscale properties in the UAE and across the Middle East, delivering a consistently high-quality hospitality experience. Time also has a solid marketing proposition. It is excellent at cross-selling its properties and has exceptional relationships with GCC travel agents, as well as international tour operators," he added.
