The Royal Amwaj is due to be completed early 2010.
Michael Scully, Managing Director Hospitality for Seven Tides, said: "These five-star developments are multi-use and have been designed for sophisticated lifestyles, whether it's business or leisure. However we will create a fun environment and it is that combination that underpins our unique proposition. They also mark the arrival of a new name in the hospitality sector - Seven Tides which remains committed to its development plans despite the global economic climate."
Scully said that Seven Tides and associated companie was confident in the long-term future of the hospitality industry not only in the UAE, but throughout the region and beyond. "As well as the four developments we are showcasing at ATM Royal Amwaj and Oceana on Palm Jumeirah, Ibn Battuta Gate and Movenpick Deira we are planning future hotel developments in Dubai as well as continuing with our drive to acquire hotels worldwide."
