Geared to accommodate families looking for at least a five-night stay, TIME Dunes Hotel Apartments Oud Metha and Al Qusais are popular among travellers from the GCC, India, and Europe. Ghassan Farhat, Hotel Manager for the two properties, says that proximity to the airport plays to their advantage.
What makes the two properties unique?
Location plays a key role for both properties. They are both in close proximity to Dubai’s international airport as well as leisure and business districts. In addition to this, the personalised service that we offer to guests makes us a preferred stay option, evident in the increasing numbers of our repeat guests.
Could you describe the Oud Metha property?
TIME Dunes Hotel Apartments Oud Metha has a total inventory of 108 units, including studio, one-bedroom, and two bedroom apartments stretched across an 11-storey building. The property also has two levels of underground parking, a gym, and an outdoor swimming pool located on the first floor. Spice Fusion, the 40-seater restaurant, serves a buffet breakfast and continues to open for à la carte for the rest of the day. Needless to say, we also have a 24-hour reception service as well as airport pick-up and drop services.
TIME Dunes Hotel Apartments Oud Metha is only 15 minutes’ drive from Dubai International Airport and a 15-minute walk from Oud Metha metro station. It is centrally located at a five-minute walk from Dubai Healthcare City and a short drive from Wafi Mall, BurJuman Mall, and Dubai Creek Park.
What about the Al Qusais property?
TIME Dunes Hotel Apartments Al Qusais is only a 15-minute drive from Dubai International Airport and located quite close to Dubai Free Zone. It drives in more corporate business due to this location but at the same time, the component of family stays combining business has also seen an increase over the past few years. The property houses a total inventory of 80 units of studio, one- bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments. It also has a gym and an outdoor swimming pool. That said, both properties receive a fair share of leisure and business travellers.
What is the plan for the last quarter?
We plan to tie-up with select operators that cater to families wanting to spend a minimum of five to seven nights per stay.
