Abu Dhabi: Dubai’s popular Cove Beach will open its second location in the UAE in Abu Dhabi’s Makers District on Al Reem Island in collaboration with developer Imkan Properties.
The new venue, which according to Cove Beach will open soon, will sit directly along the coastline of the Makers district, with more than 300 meters of beach and a sleeping area for 1,000 guests.
The opening of the new beach club will also help create 100 new jobs for Abu Dhabi’s hospitality sector, providing a timely boost to the leisure industry.
“This is an important milestone, not only for the Cove Beach brand, but also for the hospitality sector in the region,” said Adel Ghazzawi, co-founder of Cove Beach and LIVIT Hospitality Management.
“The opening of the UAE’s second Cove Beach venue reflects the appetite for delicious dining, entertainment and premium lifestyle venues – a positive sign for the post-COVID era,” he added.
“It also highlights the resilience of the industry, and we are proud to welcome 100 additional employees in the hospitality industry to the Cove Beach family.”
Makers District, which plans to begin the handover and first phase of its completion by next year, is a mixed-use hub that aims to cater to some residents, including creatives, entrepreneurs and innovators. Future phases of the Makers district include a waterfront boutique hotel and a range of residential, F&B shops and co-op spaces.
“Our Makers District development emphasizes our unique approach to place-making and commitment to creating vibrant communities,” said Richard Larmer, Head of Development at IMKAN Properties. “Our partnership with Cove Beach was the natural choice to offer our residents and visitors a first-class lifestyle experience against the backdrop of our exceptional architecture and a truly soulful destination,” he added.
