SETTING NEW INDUSTRY BENCHMARKS

Over the past two decades, The First Group has received multiple international awards for its lifestyle-focused hospitality and leisure brands, upscale hotel developments and efforts to set new quality benchmarks in the UAE’s hotel and hospitality sectors.

This widespread recognition is a testament to the firm’s enduring ability to deliver exciting hotel investment opportunities and the very finest services to its clients who hail from more than 120 countries worldwide.

The First Group has received more than two dozen international awards to date, including multiple accolades for its fast-growing hotel portfolio comprising The First Collection at Jumeirah Village Circle, Wyndham Dubai Marina, Millennium Place Marina, and TRYP by Wyndham Dubai, as well as new properties under development across Dubai.

Ciel, its landmark hotel being built in the heart of Dubai Marina – which will be the world’s tallest hotel upon completion – has already earned seven major international awards, including International Property Awards (IPAs) for Best International Hotel Architecture, Best Hotel Architecture Arabia and Best High-rise Architecture Arabia.

The sheer scale of ambition encapsulated in Ciel and the international recognition the project has received to date reflects The First Group’s commitment to setting new benchmarks in Dubai’s hotel sector and delivering the very best services to its investors and hotel guests.
