Marriott has announced the opening of the design-led Aloft Palm Jumeirah, the first property from the brand to open in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Located on the eastern crescent of the Palm Jumeirah, the hotel delivers a distinct lifestyle experience to the iconic landmark with its tech-forward approach, vibrant social experiences and modern style that is different by design.
“We are thrilled to celebrate the opening of our first Aloft in Dubai, situated on one of the world’s most sought-after destinations – the Palm Jumeirah,” said Alex Kyriakidis, president, Middle East and Africa, Marriott International.
“We see a strong demand for Aloft properties in the region as the brand continues to re-define the traditional hotel experience with its vision and innovation.
“In the UAE alone, the brand will double its portfolio in the next three years with five new openings.”
Designed for the hyper-connected, global travellers, Aloft Palm Jumeirah offers 206 loft-inspired leisurely guestrooms with airy nine-foot-high ceilings and mesmerising views over the Arabian Gulf.
“Aloft Hotels are modern, tech-forward and design-focused, and allow value-conscious savvy travellers to stay connected, network openly, and relax in style,” said Max Wiegerinck, Aloft Palm Jumeirah general manager.
“The offering is unique to the Palm Jumeirah and brings a contemporary and independent vibe to the destination.”
Further elevating Dubai’s vibrant social scene, Aloft Palm Jumeirah is home to six dining and social spaces, which includes East & Seaboard Restaurant – the hotel’s all-day dining venue.
The hotel will launch a unique Mexican-themed cantina and cocktail lounge, Luchador, which will host eclectic live events to entertain visitors from its expansive rooftop location.
The restaurant is slated to introduce a new, exciting way of Mexican dining, combining a buzzing social scene, great food, drinks and entertainment.
Aloft Palm Jumeirah is just 45 minutes from Dubai International Airport and 90 minutes from Abu Dhabi International Airport.
Aloft Palm Jumeirah is close to numerous attractions that include Aquaventure Waterpark and Skydive Dubai.
