Emerald Palace Kempinski Dubai welcomes first guests
Kempinski Hotels has announced that the long-anticipated Emerald Palace Kempinski Dubai has now opened its doors to guests.
Set within 100,000 sq. m, the palace lies on the West Crescent of Palm Jumeirah, the world’s largest man-made island and archipelago.
Its location gives panoramic views of both the sea and Dubai’s skyline, and offers a private escape just a short drive away from the city’s attractions.
Rising above the waters of the Arabian Gulf, and flanked by 500 metres of private sandy beach, the palace is a regal landmark offering 391 luxurious rooms, suites and villas, eight restaurants and bars, a 3,000 sq. m Cinq Mondes spa, kids’ and teens’ club, and the largest private cinema on Palm Jumeirah.
“We are proud to celebrate the opening of Emerald Palace Kempinski Dubai, as part of our growing portfolio of iconic and luxurious hotels in the Middle East & Africa region.
“This beachfront, palatial resort confirms our commitment to serving to the top segment of a growing luxury hospitality market.
“We remain committed to the vision of Dubai as one of the most innovative tourism destinations in the Middle East,” said Henk Meyknecht, chief operating officer, Middle East & Africa, Kempinski Hotels.
Inspired by European palaces of the past, the magnificent building has been meticulously designed with neoclassical architecture at the forefront.
These characteristics are captured in the five striking Palladian domes that form the distinct silhouette of the property, and in the eight marble columns in the grand atrium, intricately pieced together using the finest pink Portuguese marble, Rosa Portogallo.
Craftsmen have used the finest materials handpicked from Italy, France and across Europe, from the striking chandelier made from 40,000 Swarovski crystals in the grand atrium, to an ornate ballroom accented with damask silk tapestries, and a Blüthner Supreme Edition Louis XIV grand piano in the spectacular Blüthner Hall.
The 3,000 sq. m Cinq Mondes spa provides a luxurious urban sanctuary, complete with 23 treatment rooms, two private spa suites and Dubai’s largest indoor pool.
