(MENAFN Press) Dubai Creek Continues to Drive Tourism and Hospitality Sector



Dubai, United Arab Emirate



The Dubai Creek is continuing to drive the tourism and hospitality sectors in the Emirate, in the lead up to the iconic area's bid to be registered as a UNESCO World Heritage site in June of this year



With century-old architectural structures and a number of bustling souks (markets) and other tourist attractions, Dubai Municipality is expecting the number of visitors to the area to double to four million following the UNESCO registration, generating extra revenue of AED10 billion per year, according to Rashid Bukhash, Director of the Architectural Heritage Department



Dubai Municipality is investing in a number of projects, including the expansion and refurbishment of existing attractions, aimed at supporting the UNESCO bid, as the Dubai Creek's popularity amongst residents and travellers alike continues to soar



In line with the Dubai Municipality's vision to reaffirm the Creek's position as a bustling trade, tourism and hospitality hub, the iconic Sheraton Dubai Creek Hotel & Towers is set to reopen its doors on 9 April, following a USD50 million renovations and refurbishment project of its guestrooms, public spaces and restaurants



"The Creek has long been known as the heart and soul of Dubai, and the Sheraton Dubai Creek Hotel & Towers has been a part of this history for over 35 years. We have had the pleasure of extending our warm hospitality on the trade waters of Dubai Creek for close to four decades, and we're proud to be able to help discerning guests rediscover Dubai's iconic gathering place," said Stephan Vanden Auweele, General Manager, who was appointed in 2013 to spearhead the extensive renovation of the landmark hotel, representing his fourth opening and Sheraton property in his career to date



The 268 fully refurbished and brand new rooms and suites provide a stylish, relaxing escape from the bustling city for both business and leisure travellers, in the perfect setting of style and technology, offering unparalleled views of the historic Dubai Creek or Dubai's unique skyline









With its unique location just inches from the Dubai Creek, the hotel is the perfect respite for travellers to immerse themselves in the charms of old Dubai. Located in the heart of Dubai's heritage, it offers the chance to discover the authenticity of traditional Dubai markets, the old merchant market of Al Bastakiya, the Dubai Museum, or simply the Creek itself via the many dhow cruises available on the hotel's doorstep



The refurbished Vivaldi, heralded as one of the best Italian restaurants in Dubai since 2000, will now offer a creative and exciting menu with unrivalled views of the Creek and skyline



Diners can enjoy the theatre of cooking at the live-action Creekside Japanese Restaurant, or be whisked away to India by the award-winning Indian restaurant, Ashiana. Hatta, an international buffet restaurant overlooking the pool and Creek, offers a relaxed dining experience for breakfast and lunch



The very first English pub in Dubai, Chelsea Arms, continues to offer a truly British experience, while the Lobby Caf - the social hub of the neighbourhood - will offer a magnificent selection of cakes and pastries 24 hours a day



Sheraton Dubai Creek Hotel & Towers continues to offer extensive meeting and function rooms, with the elegant Dubai Ballroom capable of accommodating up to 500 guests, and 4 state-of-the-art breakout rooms located in the Executive Conference Centre



A state of the art Technogym-equipped gymnasium is available 24 hours a day for guests seeking to wind up or down at any time.



Sheraton Dubai Creek Hotel & Towers will reopen from 9 April 2014, and bookings can be made via http://www.sheratondubaicreek.com
