Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai Opens

The 477-room Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai has debuted in the United Arab Emirates. The resort, which features a glass cube entrance that seems to float in front of the hotel, offers views of the ocean as well as the Dubai Marina.

Among its offerings are three meeting rooms, including the Vista Ballroom, which affords panoramic views across the Arabian Gulf. Three additional conference rooms look toward the coastline and Dubai's iconic Burj Al Arab hotel. The property has eight food-and-beverage outlets; among them are BLVD on One, a brasserie; Elevate, a 13th -floor wine bar; Maident Shanghai, serving Chinese cuisine, and Quattro Passi, featuring Italian cuisine. The resort also has a spa with fourteen treatment rooms and four open-air cabanas alongside a hammam, a spa pool, a relaxation lounge, the Spa Café and a fully-equipped fitness center.

"Preparation for the opening of Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai has been an unforgettable journey," said Bill Walshe, CEO of Viceroy Hotel Group. "I remember my very first meeting with Kabir Mulchandani of SKAI Holdings, the developer, owner and visionary behind the entire development, and now, four years later, we have opened an incredible new experience for Viceroy guests, one where Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai has redefined modern luxury hospitality in this vibrant destination. I am extremely proud of general manager Mikael Svensson, and the entire Viceroy team for how they have launched this incredible hotel."
