DUBAI, UAE: Towering over the Dubai skyline, the InterContinental Residence Suites combine elegant comfort with the service and amenities of a five-star hotel. Ideally located, the InterContinental Residence Suites is minutes from the Dubai Festival City Mall, Downtown Dubai and the Dubai International Finance Centre.

With convenience as the main aim, the contemporary waterside apartments offers add-on services such as in-room dining, on call doctors, limousine drivers, same day dry cleaning and babysitting and even secretarial services.  For an extensive range of dining including Belgian Café, Pierre’s Bistro & Bar and Black Tap, as well as access to the Festival City Mall residents can use the complimentary shuttle bus to InterContinental Dubai Festival City.

The additional 52 new suites have been under construction for the last year as part of a multi-million dollar program to enhance the iconic Marsa Plaza property in which the InterContinental Residence Suites are located.  The new suites designed by award winning interior design company MAZARAKI – FBK feature an artfully contemporary look and feel, with a soothing colour palette of warms greys, golds, purples and plum with stylish furniture and art pieces curated by Eastern Fusion.

Under the direction of the newly appointed Area General Manager Mathieu van Alphen, InterContinental’s strategic decision to expand ahead of 2020 puts them in a solid position for bookings from long-stay business travelers and tourists. He says ‘The extended stay market is growing year on year and we have now a unique opportunity to capitalize on this with 52 additional units. The rooms are exceptional, and are designed to fit the sophisticated needs of the modern day traveler.’

The enhancement program to Marsa Plaza also included developing the central driveway and landscaping with beautiful and eco-friendly foliage, creating a mini oasis on the doorstep of the residential suites.

A recent Colliers International report said at least 10,000 additional serviced apartment units were needed to fulfill projected demand in Saudi Arabia and the UAE, and the combination view of Dubai Creek against the city skyline, InterContinental combines the perfect package of easy living and picturesque sunsets.
