The First Collection At Jumeirah Village Circle Celebrates Its First Birthday Anniversary

The First Collection at Jumeirah Village Circle – the flagship property of The First Group’s lifestyle hotel brand, The First Collection – is proud to be celebrating an extremely successful year since opening its doors in September 2021.

To mark the occasion, guests are invited to enjoy the hotel’s world-class hospitality with an array of special offers on stays and dining, and exciting social media competitions.  

From 15th to 30th September 2022, guests can book a fun-filled stay, including breakfast, for only AED 249 per night. A half-board package is also available for AED 379 per night.

For party revellers, Santè Ria, the hotel’s ultra-trendy Latino restaurant, is hosting a birthday brunch on Saturday 24th September. Packages start from AED 199 per person for a special 3-course menu and unlimited beverages.

With its warm and inviting atmosphere, excellent service and multi-generational appeal, The First Collection at Jumeirah Village Circle reflects The First Group’s vision to combine luxury and affordability in Dubai’s fast-growing lifestyle hotel market.

This forward-thinking approach has already won the hotel various awards, including being recognised as one of Tripadvisor’s ‘Hottest New Hotels for 2022’ in the online platform’s annual Traveller’s Choice Awards. More recently, the hotel was shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Best New Luxury Hotel’ category in the Middle East Hozpitality Excellence Awards 2022.

Karim Abdelhamid, Vice President – Hotel Operations, at The First Group comments:

“We are truly humbled to have had such a strong year since we opened last September. Furthermore, the reaction from guests and visitors has been second to none. Having been awarded such excellent accolades is testament to a talented team that is committed to creating unique and memorable experiences for all guests. Their dedication and attention to detail has made The First Collection at Jumeirah Village Circle what it is today.

“The opening of The First Collection at JVC has been an essential part of our growth strategy – and a core element of The First Group’s aspirations to increase our brand existence in the region. This has already begun with the recent opening of our second hotel in Business Bay, with more properties to follow next year.”

Guests who have stayed at the hotel also stand a chance to win a one-night stay by sharing their favourite highlights on social media. All they need to do is upload their best photo from their stay at The First Collection at JVC using the hashtag #FirstJVCAnniversaryMoments. The winner will be announced on 30th September 2022.
