W Hotels Worldwide announced the opening of W Dubai – The Palm today. Located on the Palm Jumeirah, one of the world’s largest man-made islands and an iconic Dubai attraction, the new 350-room property offers six food and beverage locations, the W brand’s signature AWAY Spa and more.

What can guests expect, cuisine-wise? Famous for his renowned Osteria Francescana, Chef Massimo Bottura introduced his first restaurant outside of Italy at W Dubai – The Palm. At Torno Sobito, diners eat inside converted rescue boats and pedalos (paddle boats), choosing from a playful menu of Bottura’s favorite recipes. Named after its lead snowboarder-turned-chef, Akira Back serves up Korean-inspired Japanese cuisine. W Dubai – The Palm’s rooftop bar SoBe pairs 360-degree views of the Dubai skyline with eclectic live DJ performances, cocktails and tattoo artists. At LIV, guests can order breakfast, lunch or dinner in a dining venue made entirely out of upcycled materials.

The hotel’s AWAY Spa offers ten treatment rooms, a steam room, sauna, experiential showers, a hammam and a couples’ suite. The space also features a Beauty Bar for touch-ups and ‘Quick Fix’ treatments.
