Nakheel proudly presents Avani Ibn Battuta Dubai to the world

Nakheel has once again outdone itself, having officially opened the utterly stunning Avani Ibn Battuta Dubai.

The opulent property, developed in collaboration with Thailand’s Minor International (owner of the reputable Avani brand), is Nakheel’s second to open at the ever-prominent Ibn Battuta Mall.

Ready to sweep discerning guests off their feet are 360 beautifully appointed guestrooms, inclusive of 15 luxuriant suites, as well as a pool deck with dining and recreational facilities, an exquisite all-day dining restaurant, a coffee shop, a gym and expansive meetings facilities. 

Avani Ibn Battuta Dubai is situated less than a minute’s walk from Nakheel’s world-famous mall and its 400 outlets.

Ali Rashid Lootah, chairman, Nakheel elaborated on the opening: “Nakheel continues to play a key role in enhancing Dubai’s hospitality offering in line with the emirate’s economic and tourism goals, and we are proud to partner with Minor Hotels to bring the Avani brand to Ibn Battuta Mall.

“With more than 21 million visitors a year, the mall is a world-leading destination where quality accommodation is in demand, as is clear from the constantly-high occupancy rates of our first hotel here. The arrival of this new hotel comes as Dubai’s busiest time of year gets into full swing, and we look forward to a successful winter season – and beyond – at Avani Ibn Battuta,” he concluded. 

Meanwhile, Minor International’s chairman, founder and group CEO, William E. Heinecke, also said: “Minor Hotels is thrilled to officially inaugurate Avani Ibn Battuta Dubai today, which represents both a fantastic addition to the brand’s fast-growing portfolio and our first new-build Avani in the Middle East region. We are confident the property will be very well received in the Dubai market and look forward to working with our partners, Nakheel, to ensure Avani Ibn Battuta is a great success.”
