UK-based contractor Styles & Wood has announced that it has completed a £5.5mn (AED 20m) fit out of the Waldorf Astoria hotel in Ras Al Khaimah.
The company said that a refurbishment of the 47,000ft2 of the resort was carried 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.”
