Accor is set to open Raffles the Palm Dubai in the last quarter of 2021. This will be the first Raffles resort in the middle east, on the iconic Palm Jumeirah.

The hospitality brand has partnered with Emerald Palace group (EGP) for this development.

Raffles the Palm Dubai will be located within 100,000 sqm landscape on the West Crescent of Palm Jumeirah, the world’s largest man-made island and archipelago.

The resort will feature 389 luxurious rooms, starting from 65sqm, suites, and villas, each of them featuring a balcony and terrace opening to sweeping vistas of the sea. Complementing this will be the signature Raffles butler service.

Choose from eight F&B offerings. Some key elements of the Raffles brand, including the Raffles Patisserie, Writer’s Lounge, and Library will be offered.

Besides, guests and residents will be introduced to a brand-new concept beach club offering that will showcase Mediterranean cuisine and entertainment options among others.

Those travelling with family can enjoy a range of recreational amenities including an outdoor swimming pool, a cinema, a dedicated children’s swimming pool, and a kids’ and teens’ club.

Unwind with a relaxing treatment at Cing Mondes Spa, featuring 23 treatment rooms and two private spa suites, as well as the city’s largest indoor swimming pool.

Mark Willis, CEO of Accor India, Middle East, Africa and Turkey said:

“We are confident that the new Raffles will compete with world-class luxury hotels across the globe. While being located in Dubai, one of the most sought-after cities in the world, Raffles will open its door to provide an unprecedented and exclusive level of luxury. From the private villas on the beach and array of dining offerings to the expansive outdoor areas ideal for weddings and events, Raffles the Palm Dubai is all set to become a destination in itself!”
