Andaz Dubai The Palm is located on a 300m-long private beach, within walking distance of the upcoming Nakheel Shopping Mall. Located on the right trunk of the shoreline, the two 15-storey towers will house 217 guest rooms and 116 designer residences.
The design includes local touches throughout – from textiles inspired by Sadu, geometrical embroidery on traditional hand-woven fabrics to beds framed by a canopy of waved wood to create a modern interpretation of a Bedouin tent. Contemporary art pieces showcasing up and coming local artists’ works will blend with the hotel interiors.
The property will offer a variety of food & beverage options: The Locale, a neighbourhood eatery; Hanami, a Japanese concept which offers a take on traditional izakaya; The Andaz Lounge, which offers plush seating, large tables and a library of books; Knox, an underground urban speakeasy bar.
From a MICE perspective, Andaz Dubai The Palm offers approximately 590 square metres of functional space consisting of a show-kitchen, meeting rooms, living room and a spacious terrace overlooking the beach. Complemented by advanced audio-visual technology, Andaz Salons are versatile spaces, accommodating everything from corporate meetings to social parties.
Located on the 14th floor, Ora offers a menu of facial and body treatments for singles and couples. On the same floor, guests can make use of the adult-only Cabana pool area where the tiles form a modern Arabic mosaic. Four palm tree-inspired umbrellas designed by local Emirati artist Khalid Shafar flank each corner. The hotel also offers a fitness centre and yoga terrace.
The first Andaz property in Dubai was initially meant to be located within La Mer, but that property will open in 2020 as a Hyatt Centric - the first in the UAE.
