New lounge experience at DXB promised by Marhaba
Dubai-based marhaba, dnata’s airport hospitality brand, has unveiled a brand-new design and experience at one of its flagship Dubai International Airport (DXB) lounges after an extensive renovation.
As a result, it boasts that travellers can expect an entirely new lounge experience at Dubai International Airport’s Terminal 3.
A highly-anticipated, bespoke feature for the Dubai market will be offered through the introduction of a second, enhanced PDL Salon & Café for the city – offering a unique salon experience for travellers.
Shahab Al Awadhi, head of marhaba global, commented: “The refurbishment of one of our original marhaba lounges in Dubai represents the marhaba of the future, with a customer experience and hospitality focused approach to its design and layout.
“Its six, distinct new spaces have been designed to suit the needs of every type of traveller, offering something for everyone.”
The new marhaba airport lounge experience at Dubai International Airport, Terminal 3, Concourse B follows the new ‘marhaba global lounge experience ’, which offers at its core six, distinct new areas to feature in marhaba lounges, worldwide.
The new areas – Lounge, Studio, Dining, Play, Relax and Flex – are designed to meet the needs and wants of travellers across the world, with the aim to create memorable travel experiences.
According to marhaba, the innovative new Flex zone is an area which can be repurposed for the particular needs and wants of travellers in each local area, anything from a yoga studio to a salon.
At DXB, the new ‘Flex’ zone will be based on the original PDL Coffee Co & Barbershop, a home-grown brand located at the heart of the Al Safa area.
The first café and spa under one roof to open in Dubai – PDL is expanding its existing offering at the marhaba lounge to include services for both male and female travellers.
Staying true to its original approach, customers can expect a unique salon experience, a range of services and the chance to taste its popular coffee.
Al Awadhi said: “Dubai is an established global hub for travel and we are proud to be a part of its growth story, and of the expansion of its home-grown travel services internationally.
“As the base and foundation of marhaba airport services, including our local Meet & Greet and global lounge offerings, we look forward to revealing our brand-new lounge design at Dubai International Airport with Arabian hospitality and innovation in focus, and taking this internationally, as we have done successfully throughout the course of marhaba’s history.”
