Refurbishing Hotels in Dubai

Dubai went from a dusty Emirate in the 1980s to a global phenomenon in the space of a decade. With its abundant oil-generated wealth, the United Arab Emirates paid big money to foreigners to work there and built the city we know today.

From the airline Emirates to hotels, the UAE employed the same model: state-owned companies, managed by western experts which thrive in a modern open competitive market. The skyline of the city continues to grow taller and brighter, and new hotels are opening up on every corner of the city. A staggering 97 percent of all Dubai residents are foreign and its visitors come from all over the world.

The heydey of growth was the early 2000s as visitors from neighbouring theocracies, such as Iran and Saudi, came to visit Dubai to escape the mundane life back at home. Russians visited to buy goods to sell back home while Australians stopped over for a few days on their big trips to Europe. Business was booming and the hotel industry went on a wild ride.

One of the amazing attractions of Dubai is the fact that no one cares if it’s tacky. As long as it is expensive, no one really cares. But therein lies the challenge. Because Dubai has always been regarded as something that was ultra modern, it immediately starts to lose its shine as soon as things start to look a bit dated.

This is why many hotels and venues are opting to remodel, refurbish, and redesign their products and offerings. It has been a boon for interior designers as well as turnkey companies that strip, paint, and refurbish places.

Much like Peter Pan, Dubai has to stay forever young. If it fails to do so, it will rapidly be forgotten by visitors who always want to see the most opulent malls, the highest and tallest buildings and the most modern things that the world has to offer.
