UK-based contractor Dutco Styles&Wood has announced that it has completed a AED 20m fit out of the Waldorf Astoria hotel in Ras Al Khaimah.
The company said that the refurbishment of 47,000ft2 of the resort was carried out through its joint venture with Dutco. It involved a fit-out of the hotel’s restaurants, conference centre and reception area.
The hotel’s operator, Hilton Worldwide, announced its opening in August last year. This was followed earlier this month by a second UAE Waldorf Astoria on a site at Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah owned by Al Habtoor Group.
Warren Gemlik, general manager at Dutco Styles&Wood, said: “The Waldorf Astoria brand is synonymous with quality and being selected to support its market entrance in the UAE is a significant vote of confidence in our ability to perform high-end works in a region with an increasing number of prospects.”
