Nakheel and Centara have awarded a key $80mn contract as part of their joint venture to build a major resort in Dubai's Deira Islands. 

Parkway International Contracting LLC will deliver the 601-room hotel and waterpark complex by the end of 2020 as part of the government's push to develop a broader range of four-star accommodation.

The build represents a first UAE project for Centara, a Thailand-based hotels company which entered the Middle East market with the opening of Centara Muscat Hotel in 2017.
