StayWell Holdings, one of the largest hotel management groups in Asia Pacific and a subsidiary of Seibu Prince Hotels Worldwide Inc, one of Japan's leading hotel and leisure companies, has signed the first hotel under the evolved brand banner of Park Regis - Park Regis by Prince Deira Islands (Dubai). The addition of this new property to the StayWell stable complements the existing portfolio of hotels in the UAE.



An upscale and premium brand, Park Regis by Prince is a significant evolution of the reputable Park Regis hotel brand, which first launched in 2006. With the positioning statement 'The World's Most Thoughtful Hotels', Park Regis by Prince is the latest offering in the company's impressive line-up of brands. Designed to be exceptional yet accessible, guests travelling for business and leisure can enjoy the tradition and luxury of a beautifully curated classic hotel experience, blended seamlessly with modern technology. Each property will embody a fusion of the company's Australian and Japanese heritage whilst seeking to highlight and celebrate the local influences and culture that make each location special.

The announcement of the group's new brand is punctuated with the signing of its first hotel in Deira (UAE). Park Regis by Prince Deira Islands is a resort-style property, and one of only three hotels located on the Deira Islands, providing guests with direct access to the beach. The property will feature state of the art business and leisure facilities as well as multiple food and beverage options including two restaurants, a coffee shop, a swim-up pool bar, as well as a lounge bar, gym, spa, and parking. Overlooking the Arabian Sea, 95 per cent of the property's rooms have direct sea views. The hotel is just minutes away from local attractions including a popular Night Souk, as well as the soon to be completed Souk Al Marfa which will feature 2,500 shops and pavilions, making it one of the biggest shopping destinations in the region.

Guests of Park Regis by Prince Deira Islands will also enjoy premium in-room amenities in partnership with Atkinson's (London, 1799) and the hotel will boast a bespoke signature scent and specially curated music selections, part of the overarching brand blueprint for future hotels under the new brand banner. Park Regis by Prince's newly created guest services AI tool Jean will also feature, and has been designed to assist with all guest service operations to ensure quality and consistency at every touchpoint. Open plan design, signature glass panelling, and 'clouds of foliage' will greet guests on arrival, with spacious rooms boasting luxury touches including curved showers, brass accents, and natural stone finishes.
