Kleindienst Group, the UAE's largest European property developer, said work is in full swing on its $5 billion master-planned leisure tourism island destination - The Heart of Europe - with Phase One, which includes Portofino Hotel, an authentic Italian retreat in Dubai, set for completion by the fourth quarter.
The Heart of Europe is a cluster of seven man-made islands reclaimed from the Arabian Gulf, part of The World - a cluster of 300 islands that make up a miniature version of the world just 4 km offshore frp, Dubai’s coast off the Jumeirah 1 beach.
With more than 1,200 workers, technicians, engineers and environmental experts working full time in a healthy and safe environment, Kleindienst said it has speeded up the construction activities to hand over the luxury project on time.
Once delivered, it will create a unique experiential touristic attraction for local, regional and international visitors, who will discover an upgraded leisure and hospitality experience from Europe and the Maldives in Dubai.
At the Portofino Hotel, visitors will be greeted in Italian language, offered fresh Italian food – with an arrival experience aligned on the original coastal city and its residential harbor – to offer a complete Italian experience. Each hotel suite has been designed for families where kids have separate sleeping areas, said the developer.
It is the first five-star family-only hotel and resort in the region dedicated to family (enjoy time together and also relax in their own space and privacy) and with traditional Italian design and contemporary Mediterranean architecture.
All hotel suites have been designed to offer the ultimate upgrade with en-suite viewing decks and panoramic sea views, it added.
Portofino Hotel will deploy specially trained staff to take care of children so that the parents could have their own free time to enjoy the attractions across the hotel such as swimming, snorkelling, diving and in other water sports.
Portofino hotel is deploying technologies that offers ‘touchless’ experience to guests – keyless or card-less entry to the room – through a mobile phone app that opens the doors to the suites, controls the television, preferred music channels, room temperature and shades, and the booking of customised services in the entire destination.-TradeArabia News Service
