The Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Hotel Group signed a contract with Nakheel Properties to manage the St. Regis hotel in Dubai - The Palm, the opening of which is planned for 2018. It'll be the fifth St. Regis hotel opened in the United Arab Emirates.
In the beginning of December 2016, the St. Regis Hotels & Resorts officials announced the opening of the newest "link" in their hotel chain. The hotel will be part of a huge hotel complex in Al Habtoor City, located in the center of Sheikh Zayed road; a 20-minute drive from the airport.
The hotel stands out against the background of the other hotels in the complex - it conveys a classic and timeless exterior, and we can only imagine the luxurious interior it's going to provide for its guests.
The hotel features 234 rooms, including 52 suites among which is the Royal Suite with three bedrooms and a private pool, as well as the Bentley Suite, the first in the Middle East.
The St. Regis has a tradition of designing its hotels in the spirit of neoclassicism so, the Dubai-based one will be no different. Massive doors, wide staircases, wooden furniture, marble details, and small hints of soft wallpaper are just a few details from the hotel interior.
In addition to luxurious rooms, the St. Regis will delight its guests with a variety of restaurants and bars. The restaurants will be managed by some of the best chefs of the world, such as Jean-Georges Wongerichten.
The hotel will also feature two swimming pools, including one of the world's highest "Infinity" pools located on the 50th floor - about 210 meters above the ground, and in will encircle all four sides of the hotel, providing visitors with a 360 degree view to Palm Jumeirah, the Persian Gulf, and the Dubai skyline.
The novelty will also offer guests standard St. Regis brand services such as a butler to meet the demands of different types of guests. The hotel will provide easy access to the Al Ittihad Park - the green oasis of Palm Jumeirah, which features more than 60 species of indigenous plants of the UAE and a 3.2 meter long running track.
