Al Habtoor re-launches Palm Jumeirah hotel
Dubai, October 5, 2011
Dubai-based Al Habtoor Group has re-launched the construction of its 330-room luxurious hotel on the Palm Jumeirah Island.
With the foundation laid and enabling works completed, construction of the Habtoor Island Resort and Spa is now set in motion and the project is expected to welcome its first guest before the end of 2013, said a statement.
Al Habtoor Group was one of the first to reserve its piece of land on the iconic island when the initial “reclamation of land” started in 2001.
“We were very excited when the Palm Project was first launched and we hurried to book our plot of land” commented Khalaf Al Habtoor, chairman of the Al Habtoor Group. “I was happy when we secured one of the best locations on the crescent”.
Surrounded by the stunning waters of the Arabian Gulf, this luxurious establishment, overlooking the Burj Al Arab will offer breathtaking views of Dubai.
“We wanted to add something very special in this beautiful place and took our time to create this vision. The situation is stable and we are witnessing constant growth in Dubai and in the UAE’s economy, which makes it the perfect time to re-launch this hotel project,” added Al Habtoor.
The resort will reflect both contemporary and old-world designs, creating pleasing and unique aesthetics. Not just a hotel, but a ‘lifestyle’ experience, it will combine contemporary elegance with unsurpassed quality in every sphere.
Negotiations are underway to tie the property with one of the most luxurious international hotel brands in the world, the statement said. The hotel will have approximately 330 rooms, including 60 suites.
The Royal Suite will bridge the top of the building and will offer its occupants breathtaking views of the Arabian Gulf waters on one side and the Palm on the other. Its facilities on a par with the best will include a unique 5-star serenity spa, providing modern health and beauty treatments; a health club employing world-class fitness experts and housing a state-of-the-art gym, as a number of luxury swimming pools and tennis and squash courts, in addition to its private beach.
Six themed restaurants, each offering a unique culinary experience will include a floating seafood restaurant with glass floors; a night club dedicated to the young and fashionable, as well as and state of the art banqueting and meeting facilities. With 70 per cent of the landscape allocated to an elegant garden filled with lush greenery, there will be a real feeling of space and serenity, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
