Shangri-La Hotel, Dubai
As client representative, Ròya was involved from pre-concept through to operational handover in 2003 and provided hospitality advisory services as part of the client representative role, particularly during the design development stage. Ròya also provided an invaluable contribution in identifying design elements which hindered the commercial efficiency of the property. Ròya sourced, negotiated and secured a reputable hotel operator to manage the property which led to the Shangri-La chain being appointed, and opening their first property in the Middle East region.
Ròya continues its client representative role with hotel management oversight services for the 301 room, five-star hotel and 126 serviced apartments.
