DAMAC Properties’ DICO International has signed an international hospitality partnership with Roberto Cavalli Group which will design several properties to be launched in Dubai.
The announcement coincides with 2018’s Cityscape Global, one of the world's largest exhibitions and conferences on property development taking place from 2nd to the 4th of October, and celebrates another milestone for the branded real estate sector.
The first property, a 220-room five-star hotel outfitted by the eye-catching designs of Roberto Cavalli, will be situated within the signature Al Sofouh, Dubai Marina development, and minutes away from some of the world’s most iconic tourism attractions.
The tower, scheduled for completion in 2023, will offer unmatched views of the Dubai Media City skyline and Dubai Marina, while the Roberto Cavalli Hotel will feature a jaw-dropping infinity pool overlooking the Palm Jumeirah. Complete with extravagant hospitality facilities befitting the first Roberto Cavalli Hotel, including a private majlis and stylish Bridal Suite, the property will also host premium-styled F&B outlets.
This isn’t the first time for Roberto Cavalli Group to showcase its flair for interior design. Witnessing a growing demand for branded real estate, in 2017 DAMAC Properties announced their collaboration with the renowned fashion house. This saw the launch of the world's first villas to feature interiors with the coveted 'Just Cavalli' signature style, and marked the Roberto Cavalli Group’s entry into the real estate industry.
