Featuring two of the most elite 5-star properties in one complex, it offers 512 of the most elegant rooms and suites with seven meeting rooms and a ballroom with exclusive parking and much more on offer.

The complex, located on the pristine Jumeirah beach, is a few minutes away from the business precincts which consist of media and internet city apart from others. Also, it is closer to leisure areas such as the Walk JBR, Emirates Golf Club, and Mall of the Emirates.

An ideal retreat
Overlooking the exceptional views over the Arabian Gulf, the 5-star resort Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina offers 292 rooms. The adjacent Le Méridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina on the Jumeirah coastline offers 220 guest rooms.

Loyalties and agents
The success of the property depends on the number of return guests and agents who will book them in. Tolga Lacin, Cluster General Manager of the complex explains their importance. “Agents are very important since we have a high number of leisure guests who book through agents, and large number of corporate travellers who have their own bookers. Marriott Bonvoy, our loyalty programme, is a great incentive tool that offers many benefits on property, and with third parties such as airlines, etc. Apart from this, we promote the properties through online/offline marketing, viz. through website, social media, radio, events and activations, workshops and travel show.”

Source markets
Middle East plays an important role mainly for travellers from the UAE and KSA. Russia, Germany and UK are the other source markets and recently the complex has seen an increase in the number of Indian families. What lures travellers are great outdoor facilities and the large ballroom which is a perfect for weddings and social events, etc.
