Three beachfront hotels to open this year in Dubai

Three beachfront hotels located on Dubai's Palm Jumeirah will open this year, thus strengthening the island’s position as a popular tourist spot. Located along Palm Jumeirah's trunk and crescent, the hotels from a series of operators and developers will join Atlantis, The Palm, currently the only hotel there. "While much of the recent attention has focused on the impact of the downturn on the hospitality sector, the UAE continues to be one of the world's active areas for hotel openings," Maggie Moore, Exhibition Director of The Hotel Show the annual event for hotel suppliers said in a recent statement.

"The UAE alone has over 5,700 rooms coming to market in 2010. Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia are also seeing increased activity."
