A "top-of-the-range" boutique hotel and apartments is set to open its doors in Prestwick this summer.

DeiRa, which is expected to be graded four-stars, will sit directly above the popular Taj Bar & Kitchen, and will aim to add a new dimension of luxury to Prestwick's hospitality scene.

DeiRa is the latest venture by the owners of Taj Bar & Kitchen, which has been a firm favourite in Prestwick for over 40 years.

It will be a 10-room boutique, and is set to open in July.

The owners are promising to bring the same dedication to luxury and hospitality to their new hotel.
