Nakheel is to introduce a St. Regis branded beach club to Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah. This extends from the management agreement between Nakheel and Starwood Hotels & Resorts for The St. Regis Dubai – The Palm, a new luxury hotel to be located in Nakheel’s 52-storey Palm Tower hotel and residential complex.
Part of Nakheel’s Palm West Beach complex, The St. Regis Beach Club will offer dining, leisure and fitness venues, including modern, fusion dining concepts new to the UAE, an infinity edge pool stretching almost 100m along the seafront, and a state-of-the-art gymnasium. Guests of The St. Regis Dubai – The Palm will enjoy complimentary access to the beach club, while those living in The Palm Tower Residences will benefit from preferential membership deals.
Nakheel chairman Ali Rashid Lootah said: “The St Regis Beach Club is a natural progression that further cements our relationship with Starwood Hotels & Resorts. This exclusive new facility will reinforce Palm Jumeirah’s position as the global location for luxury living and leisure by offering the unrivalled facilities that St. Regis guests across the world are accustomed to.”
Neil George, senior vice president, acquisitions & development, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Middle East and Africa, said: “We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with Nakheel to introduce a St. Regis branded beach club in this landmark destination. Managed by The St. Regis Dubai – The Palm, the beach club will offer guests an exceptional leisure experience combined with the brand’s bespoke hospitality.”
The St. Regis Dubai - The Palm will offer 289 guest rooms and suites, occupying the first 18 floors of The Palm Tower, while the upper floors will comprise 504 luxury apartments. The hotel will feature two swimming pools, including one of the world’s highest infinity pools, located on the 50th floor, 210m above ground, commanding 360 degree, panoramic views of the Palm Jumeirah, Arabian Gulf and Dubai skyline.
The hotel will offer various dining experiences including a signature restaurant with sweeping city views on the 51st level, and an all-day restaurant. Guests will experience renowned hallmarks of the St. Regis brand, including the signature St. Regis Butler Service.
The Palm Tower, for which Nakheel awarded a construction contract for AED819m (€205m) in 2015, will be directly linked to Nakheel Mall, a new luxury retail and entertainment destination with 350 shops, restaurants and entertainment outlets. The tower will also feature a public rooftop viewing deck on the 52nd floor, and is due for completion in 2018.
