Kempinski showcase opens in Dubai

With eight dining options, a spa and extensive meeting facilities, Kempinski Hotels has opened its showcase Emerald Palace Kempinski Dubai within a 100,000sq m complex on the West Crescent of Palm Jumeirah, the world’s largest man-made island and archipelago.

With a location giving panoramic views of the sea and Dubai’s iconic skyline, and rising above the waters of the Arabian Gulf, the hotel is flanked by 500m of private sandy beach and offers 391 luxurious rooms, suites and villas.

Kempinski chief operating officer Middle East and Africa Henk Meyknecht said: "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."

Inspired by European palaces of the past, the building has been designed with neoclassical architecture at the forefront with five Palladian domes and eight marble columns in the grand atrium.

Other features include a striking chandelier also in the grand atrium made from 40,000 Swarovski crystals.
