The Kempinski Hotel & Residences Palm Jumeirah of Palm Island Dubai is a five-star hotel that offers visitors home away from home comforts in Dubai.
Kempinski Hotel & Residences located on Palm Island is a quick 10-minute drive to the centralised Sheikh Zayed Road which connects the hotel to the rest of the city’s central attractions. Excellent amenities mean that unless you are shopping or sightseeing, you are going to want to spend as much time as you can enjoying the resort’s facilities. Built as a residence, the property’s suites and penthouses are mostly holiday homes owned by nearby wealthy Russians and Europeans. Because of this, you can expect a much more relaxed and quiet environment, with less tourists in the common areas. Built for longer-term stays, their two and three bedroom suites are very spacious, huge in fact compared to Hong Kong size apartments, and come with a living room, 3 bathrooms, fully-equipped kitchen and laundry room. If you plan on visiting with big extended families or friends, consider the 5 bedroom villas that come with their own games room, gym and a fully equipped kitchen. Each villa has a rooftop pool, Jacuzzi, a landscaped garden and direct access to the beach. The interior design of the place can be described as opulent Italian-style with accents of gold and pale blue hues on the furniture, heavy curtains and gold chandeliers. The views are panoramic as the balconies overlook Palm Jumeirah’s picturesque azure lagoon and Dubai’s amazing skyline.
As for facilities, the hotel boasts one of the nicest views of the Dubai city landscape from their private beach and outdoor swimming pool. There’s a fully equipped gym with yoga and pilates classes, and recreational activities like volleyball, table tennis and pool dancing exercises. French spa company Cinq Mondes Spa offers full body massages, moisturising wraps and facials.
Dining options here include Brunello, the Mediterranean restaurant set in an elegant atmosphere with white columns, rich fabrics and vast windows; K-West Bar is a nice place to have post-dinner drinks like cognac and whisky. The best thing to do is to have the BBQ at the Beachside Barbecue where food is served on tables set directly on the private beach! Reservations are recommended for this popular dining affair.
