The fourth luxury beachfront hotel has opened on the crescent of the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai; the Kempinski Hotel & Residences Palm Jumeirah.
Developed by EPG Hotels and Resorts and managed by European hotel chain Kempinski, the new hotel consists of 244 suites, penthouses and villas varying in size between 112m² and 894m². It joins the recently opened One&Only The Palm and Jumeirah Zabeel Saray on the west end of the crescent of the Palm Jumeirah, and Atlantis The Palm located at the crescent’s centre.
Facilities at the Kempinski include a 500-metre beach, a 1200m² outdoor swimming pool, a gym and spa, a kids’ club and playground, Italian restaurant, a beach bar and grill, and a cigar bar.
Hotel general manager Burkhard Wolter said: “Kempinski was one of the first hotel groups to announce a property on Palm Jumeirah. We’ve built an impressive portfolio in the region over the past 14 years and we’re proud that Kempinski Hotel & Residences Palm Jumeirah will offer something distinct in Dubai’s luxury travel and residential market — unmatched space and privacy in an iconic location, complemented by Kempinski’s five-star service and signature European style”.
The hotel has been designed by Godwin Austen Johnson and features custom-made furniture hand-crafted by the Italian company Francesco Molon.
It is Kempinski’s first beachfront property in Dubai and the company’s fourth hotel in the UAE
