Media City Hotel
by WONG JO-HANN
Home to diverse news and tech companies, Dubai’s Media City is the pride of Saudi Arabia and the leading hub of mass communication. Media City Hotel, more famously known as Grand Plaza Mövenpick, is located in the heart of this modern jungle. Newly opened in 2019, this five star hotel has a distinct looking architecture, very much inspired by Arabian culture. The building houses an especially large, state of the art convention centre that can hold up to eight hundred guests, which is perfect for large weddings, meetings and celebrations. Convenient and elegant, the hotel features five exquisite bars and restaurants, sure to bring one on an international gastronomic adventure.
Mövenpick hotel’s rooms are incredibly comfortable and spacious, all offering scenic views of the Palm Jumeirah and famous Emirates Golf Club. When one returns from a busy day, the rooms offer peace and quiet; a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Coincidence? I think not, as Thalia Real Estate, the project partners of the hotel chose to furnish every room with FR-One fabrics, curtains and upholstery. Because of the use of high quality and premium material, our collections have strong sound absorption properties, classified and tested under the “Extremely Absorbing” category A and B.
All FR-One fabrics are fully washable and maintain their colour for years to come. They also do not release any harmful finishes as the fabric are made of fire retardant threads and not sprayed with cheap and toxic topical sprays. This ensures that they are especially safe for families and pets. FR-One is also under OEKOTEX-100, an environmental certification system relating to the complete production process of textile products. To maintain trust and safety, our fabrics have to meet strict requirements that are constantly checked and updated. As a company with integrity, we care for your guests, your family and your wellbeing.
