Magnificence at The Meydan

15 Mar 2010

The world's first five-star trackside hotel is now open

The Meydan, the world's first five-star trackside hotel, opened its doors to the world on March 4, 2010. And with its very first guest checking into the property, the hotel carved its distinct place in the world of luxury.

It’s an integral part of the Meydan Grandstand and Racecourse, the new home to the world's richest horse racing event, the Dubai World Cup. But what really makes The Meydan stand out is that it is the most distinctive hotel to combine horse racing and entertainment with superior hospitality and service.

Says Abdin Nasralla, Vice President Meydan Hotels and Hospitality Division, "The Meydan and its offering of unique experiences is a gift not only to the racing world, but for all who can appreciate superior service and hospitality excellence. We are especially pleased to open The Meydan in time for this year's Dubai World Cup where a room at the The Meydan will naturally make this already special occasion a once in a lifetime experience."

It’s special every which way as The Meydan also offers a high-quality experience for the taste buds, with three gourmet dining outlets, including an international all day dining restaurant, steakhouse and Japanese restaurant, which are sure to form a new hotspot for Dubai's culinary set. The hotel’s facilities also include a wellness spa, gym, business centre, club lounge, conferencing and meeting facilities offering unique panoramic views of the racecourse.

Guests staying at The Meydan on its opening night enjoyed not just the thrill of an evening programme of racing events, but also experienced from their balcony a live performance and concert by Sting. Following the running of the Dubai World Cup on March 27, the double star power of Elton John and Santanna will entertain guests and fans. Sounds fantastic, doesn't it? We'll see you there!
