DUBAI—Viceroy Hotel Group announced an important portfolio addition with the 2017 opening of Viceroy Dubai, Palm Jumeirah. The $1 billion dollar endeavor marks the company’s first venture into Dubai and its second in the United Arab Emirates alongside sister property Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi.
Located on beachfront property, the Viceroy Dubai Palm Jumeirah is owned by SKAI Holdings, and will be developed by the same company behind the UAE’s Nurai Island and Al Barari, Zaya Dubai.
With architecture and design lead by Yabu Pushelberg and NAO Taniyama and Associates, Viceroy Dubai Palm Jumeirah will offer 481 guestrooms and suites, all with views of the Arabian Gulf.
“This property marks our first foray into the Dubai market and is a milestone in our growth in the region” remarks Bill Walshe, CEO of Viceroy Hotel Group. “Our market entry is perfectly timed and our partnership brings together the collaboration of two success stories in the real estate and hospitality industries. We expect this property to set a new bar in beachfront luxury, not just for Dubai, but anywhere in the world.”
Viceroy Dubai Palm Jumeirah will feature services and amenities including dining venues hosted by world-class chefs, a modern spa, a beach club, and a one hundred meter-long pool. Children’s clubs, entertainment, and sporting activities will also be available.
