Mövenpick-managed Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel to attend World Travel Market in London – hotel to extend unique all-inclusive winter break package

Following the successful launch of its all-inclusive package earlier this year, the five-star Mövenpick-managed Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel Dubai will be extending its ‘all-in’ offer throughout the winter season until the end of April 2012.

Along with its sister property the Oceana Beach Club, on Palm Jumeirah, ‘The Gate’ is reopening reservations for its optional £ 47 supplement per person per night, (free for children under six and 50% for kids under 12). Normal restaurant menus apply, along with quality house and branded beverages. The ‘dine, sign and relax’ offer applies to advanced bed and breakfast bookings for four consecutive nights or more.

“The initial launch of our all-inclusive winter offer was a major success, with heavy demand from UK and German tour operators. The deadline for bookings passed recently and due to its popularity, we have decided to extend the offer until the end of April next year,“ said Andrew Hughes, Director of Sales and Marketing at the Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel.

“Some leading tour operators are now packaging this offer for as little as UKP899 per person, using Qatar Airways out of London Heathrow,” added Hughes.

The hotel announced the extension ahead of its participation at World Travel Market (WTM) exhibition in London which starts on 7th November. WTM is a key event for the international travel industry and attracts over 46,000 travel professionals from all over the world.

At Oceana Beach Club, guests can also enjoy the sun, sand and sea, with a private beach, infinity pool and outdoor dining accessible through the hotel’s complimentary 10-minute shuttle bus. A 20% discount is applied to Oceana’s highly popular West 14th Steak House, a New York-style Grill.

For an extra supplement of just €95 guests can also enjoy a lavish gala dinner on New Year’s Eve at the hotel’s main atrium; Al Bahou, an authentic example of traditional Arabic architecture.

The Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel is a comprehensive destination in itself, offering larger families the option of interconnecting rooms, a dedicated metro link and of course for those in need of some retail therapy, the extensive Ibn Battuta Mall is just next door.
