Dubai master developer Nakheel has signed a management agreement with the Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide to operate a new St. Regis in Dubai.
Set to open in 2018, The St. Regis Dubai - The Palm will be a part of Palm Tower, Nakheel’s 52-storey luxury mixed-use development and the centrepiece of Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah island.
The St Regis Dubai - The Palm will offer 289 guest rooms, including 23suites, occupying the first 18 floors of The Palm Tower, while the upper floors will comprise 504 luxury apartments.
The hotel will feature two swimming pools, including the one of the world’s highest infinity pools. Located on the 50th floor, some 210m above ground, the pool will border all four sides of the building, offering 360 degree views of Palm Jumeirah, Arabian Gulf and Dubai skyline.
The hotel will offer various dining experiences including a signature restaurant with city views located on the 51st level, a St. Regis Beach Club and an all-day restaurant.
The hotel will also feature a public rooftop viewing deck on the 52nd floor. Located adjacent to the luxury Nakheel Mall and Al Ittihad Park, the hotel will also offer beach access to guests.
Nakheel chairman, Ali Rashid Lootah, said: “Palm Jumeirah is a global destination offering the ultimate in luxury living and leisure. Our partnership with Starwood to open a St. Regis on the Palm reinforces what the island is all about: unrivalled, world-class facilities that set new standards for residents and tourists. We are delighted to have partnered with St Regis to represent our flagship hotel, and one of the most sought-after establishments in the region.”
