Kempinski to open first beach resort in Dubai
Dubai, December 31, 2009
Kempinski Hotels, a leading chain of luxury hotels and resorts, will open its first beach resort in Dubai in March 2010, which will be operated as private residences and luxury hotel apartments.
Targeted at high-end residents, Kempinski Residences Palm Jumeriah will feature a total of 244 units consisting of apartments, penthouses, townhouses and villas.
“The property is Kempinski’s first beach resort in Dubai and fits perfectly with our vision of having only unique properties in our portfolio, especially in a destination like Dubai where everything seems to be done par excellence,” said Reto Wittwer, president and CEO of Kempinski Hotels.
“This project has been one of the most successful in the UAE achieving some of the best yield rates within properties on the Palm,” he added.
Located on the West Crescent of Palm Jumeirah, a prestigious address in Dubai, the resort neighbours Dubai Internet City and Dubai Media City.
All apartments equipped with the latest technology and appliances such as Bang & Olufsen, Villeroy & Boch, Porsche Design and Siemens, a statement said.
Wittwer continued: “Kempinski entered the market in the UAE over 11 years ago with one property on the beaches of Ajman, followed by a theatrical entry to the Emirate of Abu Dhabi with the inauguration of the iconic Emirates Palace.
“However, Kempinski had been eyeing an opportunity to enter the Dubai market specifically to take part in this massive development of Dubai as a booming tourism destination and ride on the wave of hospitality excellence that developed under the wise direction of Dubai’s visionary leader.
“We were, however, waiting for the right property at the right time to avoid being just another hotel brand coming to the market with yet just another hotel.”
“We look forward to this coming year with a lot of optimism while preparing for the final development and opening of our second property in Dubai on Palm Jumeirah,” Wittwer concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
