Caesars To Run Dubai Resorts
Company’s first venture into non-gaming properties
Caesars Entertainment Corp. is set to manage two luxury hotels and a beach club at Meraas Holdings' Dubai-based Bluewaters Island development. Slated to open late this year, Caesars Palace Bluewaters Dubai and Caesars Bluewaters Dubai are the company first non-gaming resorts. Information about properties’ designers was not immediately available.
Situated along the beachfront of a man-made island, the two resort hotels will include 479 keys. The resorts’ amenities will include 12 bars and restaurants, a beach club, indoor and outdoor pools, a spa with a wellness center and meeting/convention space.

Caesars operates 47 casinos in 13 U.S. states and five countries. Projects in its pipeline include an integrated resort in Incheon, South Korea; a meetings and conference center in Las Vegas; and a Harrah's-branded facility in Northern California.
