There are three things you must know about the Kempinski Hotels brand. One, Kempinski Hotels is Europe’s oldest luxury hotel group. Two, Kempinski’s portfolio now comprises seventy-six illustrious five-star hotels and residences in over thirty countries and continues to develop historic landmark properties in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and The Americas. Three, unrivaled craftsmanship and impeccable service are at the very core of the Kempinski experience.
The latest chapter in the Kempinski story: Emerald Palace Kempinski Dubai, a magnificent newly opened landmark property situated on the West Crescent of Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah, complete with panoramic sea views, an 18-hole putting green, 391 luxurious rooms, spacious suites, and royal villas. Let’s not forget the 80-seat private cinema, 8 restaurants—including miX, a UAE first from 3-Star Michelin chef Alain Ducasse—, a 32,000 square foot spa, Cinq Mondes, a wellness center, and yoga studio. Then there’s the grand atrium outfitted with a 40,000 Swarovski crystal chandelier and a Blüthner Supreme Edition Louix XIV grand piano—aptly named after the legendary German piano maker, Julius Blüthner. Where, you ask? In Blüthner Hall, no less.
“We are all very proud celebrating the opening of Emerald Palace Kempinski Dubai, as part of our growing portfolio of iconic and luxurious hotels in the Middle East & Africa region, said Henk Meyknecht, COO of Kempinski Hotels, Middle East & Africa. This beachfront, palatial resort property confirms our commitment to serving the top segment of a growing luxury hospitality market. We remain committed to the vision of Dubai as one of the most innovative tourism destinations in the Middle East.
Of course, a hotel of this magnitude is not complete without its very own mélange of gastronomic delights. The concept, as a whole, pays fantastic homage to contemporary and classical riffs on French, Italian, and Pan-Asian cuisine. Guests have their choice of all-day dining at Le Jardin; handmade pasta at the chic, Venetian-inspired All’Onda; laid-back rustic sunsets while feasting on seasonal meats and fish at Villamoré, or enjoying live music at Skorpeus Lounge & Bar.
But Emerald Palace really lives up to Kempinski brand philosophy via its masterful architecture. Starting with rooms at 65 square meters, one of the largest lead-in room categories on Palm Jumeirah, the Palace caters to the most refined of guests. Every room delivers on décor, lounge space for rest and relaxation, highly polished marble bathrooms, and expansive balconies with striking views across Palm Lagoon. What’s more, the Presidential, Royal and Mezzanine Suites showcase stately floor to ceiling windows, freestanding bathtubs, separate lounge areas, and remarkably impressive high ceilings.
For a truly luxurious residential experience, the collection of ten stand-alone four-bedroom Royal and Imperial Villas are uniquely positioned, flanking the gardens as well as the adjacent shoreline. They also feature their own rooftop pool, Jacuzzi, and spa room, and dedicated 24-hour butler service. From 24-karat gold leaf detailing and handcrafted motifs to Palace’s distinctive five Palladian dome silhouette, what the Kempinski Hotel brand brings to life with Emerald Palace, is an exclusive, well thought out and delicately wrought journey into a guest experience of the highest caliber.
