New Openings, Dubai


With confidence improving in Dubai after the global economic downturn and real GDP projected to grow by around 4.6% in 2011, some high-profile openings may improve the beleaguered emirate’s profile.

The Dubai International Finance Centre – a  341-room hotel complete with more than 100 executive residences – opened earlier this year, the second property from the Ritz-Carlton group in this region.
