Despite only opening last November Caesars Palace Bluewater in Dubai has scooped its first accolade.
The first non-gaming premises – currently – from the international operator has come out on top at the 2019 Leaders in Hospitality Awards and been crowned as the Resort of the Year. Accepting the award, Vincent McGrath, area general manager of Caesars Bluewaters Dubai said: “The team at Caesars Palace Bluewaters Dubai is thrilled with the accolade, which places us at the forefront of the Middle East’s luxury hospitality sector, and reinforces the hard work carried out by each of our colleagues. We work together to delight our guests – exceeding their expectations through creative and memorable experiences – all whilst inspiring grown-ups to play. We are honoured to have been named Resort of the Year, and look forward to reaching even higher standards.”
The incredibly lucrative Dubai market is a natural fit for the company’s high-end resort stylings even if its traditional gaming offering has been held back on account of regional religious reasons.
The Bluewater resort is located on an artificial island area which styles itself as a city within a city experience. Given the eventual implementation of gambling practices in other nations with similar cultural prohibitions it would seem natural to assume that it will make its way to Dubai in time.
Operations in countries such as Egypt are restricted to international visitors and given the natural separation offered by Bluewater island Caesar’s Palace is perfectly positioned to differentiate itself from the wider city should needs must.
