this new hotel has two separate blocks on either side of the road with a climate controlled walkway connecting the two.

The Bavaria Executive Suites, as the project is called, is pegged as the largest Suite Hotel in the Middle East, North Africa and Europe.

Bavaria itself is well known for its natural beauty, tradition, renowned for its warmth, elegant hotels and resorts and a long history of hospitality, while there is something about German precision that makes everything run smoothly.

Announcing plans for the proposed project, Thomas Gertz, CEO of Bavaria Hotels outlined the salient features of the Suite Hotel.

"This luxury property of 2100 suites will offer unparalleled levels of service and comfort, featuring the latest technology complete with seamless security systems ensuring privacy and peace of mind, plus superb panoramic views of the surrounding area.

Strategically located within the Dubai Technology and Media Free Zone, the two 40-floor towers are directly adjacent to Shaikh Zayed Road, in close proximity to the Jumeirah beaches, the Palm and the Emirates mall, with easy access to the airport, downtown Dubai and Jebel Ali Free Zone," he said.

Another unique element of this project is that it will connect directly to the Dubai Light Rail System, the city's newest transport system that is expected to be operational in the years to come.

The 2100 one, two and three bedroom designer suites are planned to be fully furnished and equipped with smart technology features such as IP telephones, Plasma Screen TVs and wireless connectivity with high speed internet access all of which go towards offering what the Bavaria Hotels International calls it "the convenience of a luxury hotel yet with the comfort and privacy of a home".

The hotel also boasts of a rooftop sports arena, a cycling track, squash, basketball, badminton and tennis courts, a jogging track and a flood-lit golf course but what brings out the best in the project is it's the conference and meeting centre that is different from the others and offers flexible seating for upto 1000 people, six rooms with double height ceilings, terraces and daylight, a commodity that is virtually absent from most convention centres.

Being built with a Dh800 million investment, the Suite Hotel, which is located in the Dubai Free Zone is expected to offer its guests luxury for less, "as the price benefits of being in the free zone will be passed on to our guests," as an official of Bavaria Hotels International explained.
