Elie Saab, the Lebanese designer, is known throughout the world for his fashionable tailoring. Now, he is to lend his name to a series of luxury boutique hotels to be built in the Middle East. The first, costing a reported Dh600 million (US$163 million), will be built at The Tiger Woods Dubai, Tatweer’s mixed-use development at Dubailand, in the emirate of Dubai. The hotel, which is to have 89 suites and 14 bungalows of various sizes, will overlook Al Ruwaya, an 18-hole golf course that is the first to be designed by Tiger Woods. The development should be ready in September 2009.
