R Hotels named Fourzone Middle East as its interior fit-out contractor for its new four-star resort and spa in Palm Jumeirah.
The 253-key property, which will be the first holistic health and wellness resort in the region, is expected to open doors in April 2017.
The fit-out deal was signed by Samir Arora, the property’s pre-opening general manager, and Ajish Nambiar, Fourzone Middle East’s marketing director. Fourzone Middle East is tasked to provide the complete interior fit-out solutions for the project – from production and sourcing of furniture and soft furnishings, and carrying out finishing works.
In line with its concept, the general look and feel of the hotel will be organic, using design elements like wood and utilising earth colours in the interior and furnishings. It will offer room and suite options, plus Executive and Presidential Suites on the sixth and seventh floor, and an Executive Lounge on the seventh floor. With its focus on wellbeing, property will feature a restaurant with healthy menu; gym and tennis court; an area dedicated for fitness classes; swimming pool and private beach facilities; and separate spa for men and women with hamman, sauna, steam bath and treatment rooms.
R Hotels’ Arora commented: “R Hotels’ new property in Palm Jumeirah is the group’s sixth, and biggest project to date. The fit-out is crucial as it will set the overall character of the property, to convey the holistic wellness concept. We are confident, given Fourzone Middle East’s track record, that they can deliver the job efficiently and within the given time frame.”
Fourzone’s Ajish Nambiar affirmed: “We are privileged to be handpicked by R Hotels in this groundbreaking development. Our team of seasoned fit-out professionals will ensure that all aspects of the projects are of the highest standards. We hope that this will be the start of a strong partnership and we aim to work with the group on its other projects in the future.”
