1. Assumes management of The Montgomerie Dubai clubhouse
2. Now called The Address Montgomerie Dubai
3. Troon Golf to continue to manage golf facility
The Address Hotels + Resorts, the five star premium hotel brand of Emaar Hospitality Group, has strengthened its portfolio in the UAE with the addition of The Montgomerie Dubai golf club with effect from October 8, 2009. The Address will now operate and manage the boutique styled clubhouse and focus on offering tangible guest benefits in line with the brandâ€™s operational ethos.
This latest addition of The Address Hotels + Resorts will increase their ever-growing portfolio in the UAE to five, which includes the already opened properties of The Address Downtown Burj Dubai, The Address Dubai Mall, and The Palace â€“ The Old Town and the soon to open hotel The Address Dubai Marina.
Mr. Marc Dardenne, Chief Executive Officer, Emaar Hospitality Group and Emaar Hotels & Resorts, said: â€œTo operate and manage The Montgomerie Dubai is a logical move forward for The Address Hotels + Resorts. By integrating this luxury retreat under The Address umbrella, we are building on the strong platform of growth that we have already created for the brand. The Address Montgomerie Dubai, thus, becomes the first retreat hotel in our portfolio, a unique positioning that we will further build on.â€
He added: â€œIn line with the new brand identity and positioning, The Address Montgomerie Dubai will also focus on offering tangible guest benefits through a one size fits one strategy. Among the signature services that will be implemented with immediate effect are the 24-hour stay check-in policy and free Internet access across the hotel which are sure to add to The Montgomerieâ€™s already existing world-class reputation. A retreat hotel is the ultimate in personalised service and that is what we assure our guests.â€
The Address Hotels + Resorts will manage all operational aspects of the property. The golf course and adjoining golf academy, which have been immensely successful since their launch in October 2002, will continue to be managed by the worldâ€™s foremost luxury Golf brand, Troon Golf.
Mr. Colin Montgomerie said: â€œThe association of The Address brand is a great added benefit for The Montgomerie in Dubai. The Montgomerie has achieved numerous milestones and accolades since its opening in 2002 and is certain to further strengthen its appeal under this new management agreement in the foreseeable future.â€
The ongoing expansion strategy of The Address Hotels + Resorts includes an international outlook having already signed management contracts to oversee the Jnan Amar Polo Retreat in Morocco. The brand has also marked its entry into Europe with a management contract for Domaine de Lavagnac, a luxury award winning resort in South of France. Other destinations for The Address brand include Egypt, Morocco, Lombok in Indonesia, Budapest, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, Kuwait, Shanghai, London, Los Angeles and New York.
