Amid much buzz and anticipation, the Kempinksi Hotel & Residences Palm Jumeirah developed by EPG Hotels & Resorts has confirmed its July 2011 launch date for the luxury hotel group's first beachfront property in Dubai. Situated on the man-made island of Palm Jumeriah, the property will be operated as five-star, all-suite hotel property with 244 suites, penthouses and villas.
Designed by film GAJ, the European-inspired suites feature custom made furniture by Italian designer company Francesco Molon. Featuring space measuring 112-894 square meters (1,206-9,623 square feet), these suites include a kitchen, one to five bedrooms and terrace space with the option of an outdoor private pool or Jacuzzi, looking out onto the Palm Jumeriah lagoon and the Dubai skyline or the Arabian Sea.
On location, dining ranges from the site's restaurants and bars range to private dining or the hote's en suite Palace Ceremony. At "Key West" Bar & Lounge, sink into the venue's leather and wood with your choice of cocktails, Cognac, Armagnac and Whisky and rare cigars. A classic Mediterranean restaurant, Brunello will feature views of the inner gardens and large French doors opening out onto the terrace. We recommend inquiring about the property's personal butler and personal chef.
Not to be overlooked, take advantage of the boardroom and meeting room, in addition to the gym and spa. During your stay, consider the hotel's five acres of landscaped gardens and 5,382 feet of private beach. Alternately, enjoy the free-form outdoor swimming pool of 12,916 feet with a shaded area for children or the kids' club and playground.
