Located in the Jebel Ali area of Dubai and in close proximity to the Expo 2020 Dubai site, the 396-key property and Ibn Battuta Gate complex are well known for the iconic gate design which has become a landmark sight in the city.

The hotel is situated opposite Ibn Battuta Mall, with the Dubai Metro close by allowing visitors to travel conveniently across the city, including being able to reach many of Dubai’s tourist highlights and business districts. Dubai Marina is also easily reachable, with its many attractions including Marina Mall, multiple dining options, sky diving and the beach. Dubai International Airport (DXB) is 30 minutes’ drive, with Dubai Al Maktoum Airport (DWC) also easily accessible and Abu Dhabi International Airport under an hour away.

Marking the second Oaks property in Dubai and the third in the UAE, Oaks Ibn Battuta Gate offers modern accommodation options for both business and leisure travellers. These include 352 guest rooms across three different categories, plus 44 suites. The three guest room types – Premier, Deluxe and Executive – are stylishly furnished with Moroccan influences, whilst the Suites have décor inspired by the explorer Ibn Battuta’s adventures across the world.

The 13 Family Suites offer 55sqm of flexible space, with the 29 Battuta Suites providing a generous 85 sqm including living area and a spacious terrace with city views. The two, Two Bedroom Royal Suites, each an impressive 140 sqm, have two king bedrooms, a living and dining area, plus an outdoor terrace. All room types offer a 40-inch HD LCD television, complimentary wifi, tea and coffee making facilities and a bathroom with walk-in shower and separate bathtub.

“We are delighted to add Oaks Ibn Battuta Gate to our portfolio of hotels and resorts in Dubai,” commented Dillip Rajakarier, CEO Minor Hotels and Minor International. “With its close proximity to Dubai Exhibition Centre and the site for Dubai Expo, the property is perfectly situated to capitalise on this hugely significant global event, now rescheduled to a year later and therefore extending the opportunity further. We look forward to working with our partners Seven Tides, to build on the success of this impressive hotel.”
