NEW DELHI, INDIA (April 10, 2013) — Mahindra Holidays & Resorts India Limited (MHRIL), one of India’s leading leisure hospitality providers has announced an addition to its network, ‘Arabian Dreams Hotel Apartments’ in Dubai. This hotel has 75 rooms which are a combination of studios and apartments and is centrally located in Dubai. This is the second addition the company has made in an international destination after Bangkok in November 2012.
Speaking about the addition, Mr. Arun Nanda, Chairman, MHRIL said, “We are committed to expanding the choice of destinations for our members. Following through with our strategy of building where Indians love to go – outside India, we have now added Dubai to our footprint. Indians have named Dubai among their top three favoured destinations and as leaders in leisure hospitality we were quick to close the gap. We soon hope to have our presence in other locations like Sri Lanka and Malaysia.”
Dubai is among the favoured destinations for Indians to visit and holiday. According to a press release issued by the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing, Government of Dubai, India is a major source market for Dubai’s vibrant tourism industry, and in 2011, India ranked at the top for the strongest passenger growth in passenger numbers at the Dubai International Airport which closed the year with over 51 million passengers.
With its many attractions, including loads of shopping and a large percentage of Indian residents, Dubai feels like a home away from home. Flights from 16 Indian cities, some of them more than once daily, ensure that Dubai is no more than a few hours away. The demand for travel to Dubai has kept fares well within reach. The geographical and cultural proximity make Dubai an ideal family holiday destination.
