Three new hotels for Palm Jumeirah

Three beachfront hotels are scheduled to open this year on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah. The new properties, from a series of different operators and developers, will join Atlantis, The Palm, currently the sole hotel, offering visitors a broader choice. First to open will be the Zabeel Saray by Rixos, a 410 room hotel which will launch in the second quarter of 2010. Following this, The 293 room Royal Amwaj Resort & Spa from Moevenpick Hotels & Resorts will open on the north-eastern crescent of Palm Jumeirah in October 2010. Finally, One&Only The Palm is due to open in October 2010 with a blend of Moorish and Andalucian influences. Comprising 100 keys, guest accommodation at this small resort is composed of 35 suites and apartments within the grand Manor House, six independent low-rise mansions with eight to ten suites and two and three bedroom beachfront villas. The Grand Palm Suite will occupy 350 square metres on the top floor overlooking the 850 square metres pool or the resort’s private harbour. Ian Scott, director UK and Ireland for the Government of Dubai, Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM), said: “Palm Jumeirah is one of the most exciting projects on the world stage and it is little wonder that some of the world’s leading hotel groups are unveiling prestigious projects there. A large number of hotels are set to open on the island, and we are encouraged to see such a mixture of developments, which have taken their inspiration from all over the world, opening in this phase. This year’s openings reinforce Dubai’s position as a cosmopolitan, global hub and we hope that innovations such as all-inclusive offers will continue to entice visitors to sample the many delights of Dubai.”
