New Mövenpick Hotel Deira offers 100% fun with 25% discount –variety and Arabic charm of ‘old town’ attracts visitors from the GCC countries.

The Mövenpick Hotel Deira, the latest five-star addition to Dubai’s ‘old town’ skyline, has launched its summer promotional rates, focusing on the traditional GCC markets with a proposition that offers some urban summer fun.

Michael Nugent, the hotel’s general manager explained; “Not every visitor to Dubai wants sun, sand and sea, many, especially those from Middle Eastern countries want shade, shops and sales, irrespective of their length of stay.

“As the saying goes, ‘variety’s the very spice of life, that gives it all its flavour,’ and Deira has that in bucket-loads,” added Nugent.

The hotel has taken what was its lowest room rate and applied a 25% discount across the board. Summer rates, valid until 31 August, now start at AED295 subject to tax and service charges with additional discounts on pre-booked meals

The Deira area is well known for its myriad of independent Arabic restaurants, cafes and shops. For those requiring some serious retail therapy, the hotel operates complimentary bus shuttles to Al Ghurair Centre, Mirdiff City Centre and Outlet Mall.

However for those intrepid shoppers, intent on deals in heels, Deira City Centre and even Dubai Mall are both within easy reach via taxi. In addition, other attractions that Deira boasts include, The Gold Souq, The Creek, the Heritage Village, numerous multi-screen cinemas and much more.

“Obviously location is key,” said Nugent. “Being in the heart of Deira, taxis are plentiful and the area is so compact, the cost of getting around is very reasonable as well,” he added. The hotel is also offering some extremely competitive incentives to local companies over the summer period.

“The world of commerce does not shut down over the summer in Dubai and many business meetings still take place. However the summer does provide busy executives with the opportunity to bring their families with them for a short break and we want to make that a reality for as many as possible,” said Nugent.

The hotel has two restaurants, a lively bar, an outdoor swimming pool and a fully equipped fitness centre. In-house guests also have access and complimentary transfer to the hotel’s private Oceana Beach Club on The Palm Jumeriah.
