Newly Appointed General Manager

Emaar Hospitality Group has appointed Riad Abi Haidar as the General Manager of Manzil Downtown Dubai.

A natural leader, Abi Haidar has demonstrated an ability to lead, train and organise a team into a competent and impressive unit achieving results, and delivering outstanding service for guests. Riad brings more than a decade of experience in the hospitality business to his new role, much of which has been spent in the UAE – within Emaar Hospitality Group and several properties under another UAE-based hotelier.

New Meeting Room Facilities

Manzil Downtown Dubai has expanded its facilities and added two new meeting rooms to its portfolio. Since its opening two years ago, the hotel has strived to offer dynamic and innovative opportunities for successful meetings and events. The brand-new, multi-functional meeting rooms, with direct access to the terrace on the mezzanine floor are available to book for a number of occasions including conferences, private dinners, board meetings or team building events.

Manzil Downtown Dubai’s Commitment To Sustainable Practices

The innovative boutique hotel is expanding its green footprint by becoming an eco-friendly property focused on reducing waste consumption and implementing a recycling and compost program. Known for its commitment to the environment, Manzil Downtown Dubai has implemented several different programs aimed at providing an environmentally friendly atmosphere for its employees and guests. The team has recently taken steps to cultivate the property’s first herb garden which has shown great progress in a short amount of time. Lastly, Manzil Downtown promotes a healthy lifestyle by offering guests the use of its beautiful vintage bikes which can be used to get around the Downtown area. There is no better way to see the sights up close while also getting in a daily work out too.
