Integrated property developer The First Group has celebrated the opening of its latest award-winning hotel development, The First Collection at Jumeirah Village Circle (JVC).
Featuring an array of sophisticated guest, dining, leisure facilities and 491-guestroom, The First Collection at JVC sets new standards in the Jumeirah Village precinct for upper midscale accommodation.
Centrally located close to Dubai’s major transportation links and just 15 minutes from the Expo 2020 Dubai site in Dubai South, The First Group expects the hotel to prove extremely popular with international leisure guests and business travellers alike.
Highlights of the four-star property include a large swimming pool, fully equipped gymnasium and sundeck, alongside separate male and female spa facilities. Business travellers can take advantage of the hotel’s Nest VIP Lounge and Co-Working Space, which provides access to a range of office-style facilities in a quiet, comfortable environment.
The First Collection at JVC boasts extensive and innovative restaurants and bars, headlined by Santè Ria, a Latino-inspired venue that will serve up fresh, South American-inspired flavours and all-day dining outlet The Village Bistro.
The opening also marks the global debut of The First Group’s new lifestyle-hotel brand, The First Collection. The new brand encompasses The First Group’s future hotel, F&B, and lifestyle venues alongside select existing properties.
“The First Collection at Jumeirah Village Circle is one of Dubai’s most exciting new hotel openings of 2021,” commented Rob Burns, Chief Executive Officer of The First Group.
“The hotel will set new standards for upscale and upper-midscale accommodation in the heart of this dynamic, up-and-coming precinct, and thanks to its world-class dining and leisure facilities, will become a popular destination in its own right, befitting the ambitions of The First Collection as a lifestyle-focused brand.”
