Set in the depths of the Arabian Gulf, the Palm Islands are a haven of luxury hidden from the hustle and bustle of Dubai. The result of visionary planning and architectural brilliance, this beautiful archipelago, which resembles a palm tree crowned with crescents, has become one of the world’s most sought-after locations. Part of only a handful of the planet’s attractions that can be viewed from space, its striking physical presence is matched in equal measures by its sublime amenities. Brimming with five-star hotels, picturesque beaches and superb views of the Dubai Marina, it’s a destination made for memorable moments.
One of the resorts that hold pride of place on the island is the Kempinski Hotel & Residences Palm Jumeirah. Spread across a 100,000-square-metre property on the water’s edge, it’s an oasis of pure indulgence within one of the world’s fastest-growing cities. Enveloped by lush greenery and boasting a 250-metre-long private beach, this regal resort beckons travellers looking for a tranquil hideaway filled with all the frills and fancies.
Home to 244 expansive, elegantly appointed suites, penthouses and villas, it’s a welcoming retreat for families, friends, couples and colleagues. The interiors are inspired by classic European décor and feature soft tones and sophisticated furnishings complemented with gold touches. Views flow in boundlessly from every angle, whether it’s panoramas of the Palm Jumeirah lagoons, the Arabian Gulf, the manicured gardens or the glistening Dubai skyline.
The refined two-bedroom Family Suites, which range in size from 112 to 150 square metres, are ideal for vacations with the younger ones. Take a moment to sip a cup of coffee in the morning on your private balcony while you soak up the sea or garden views before treating your kids to a day at the resort’s private beach. There is also a two-bedroom Family Suite with a private pool, perfect for those looking to swim and sunbathe in complete privacy.
The deluxe three-bedroom Family Suites are the epitome of elegance, outfitted with the best-in-class furniture. For larger families or groups of friends, the four-bedroom Superior Penthouse offers the privilege of extra space. Spanning between 340 and 492 square metres, these suites have their own private jacuzzi and terrace for laid-back afternoons spent enjoying the sun and sea views. The interiors boast a beautiful aesthetic resembling an elite residence, complete with three king-size bedrooms and a twin room, plus four bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a dining room and a lounge with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the lagoon or garden.
The five-bedroom Royal Villa is the most opulent accommodation option at Kempinski Hotel & Residences Palm Jumeirah. With 761 square metres of space to enjoy, guests can spend their days relaxing in their private rooftop pool and jacuzzi, set to the backdrop of panoramic views of the Arabian Gulf. This villa also offers eight bathrooms, a full kitchen, a dining room, a living room and a games room, plus Bose sound systems and multiple televisions.
As with the accommodation, the hotel’s food and beverage outlets also make the most of the stunning setting. Brunello Restaurant is an elegant Italian eatery that offers al fresco dining on a large terrace overlooking the gardens. On the interior, marble columns, rich fabrics and expansive windows set the scene for a convivial Italian dining affair brimming with all the most-loved Italian classics. Expect dishes such as an heirloom tomato and burrata salad with pesto and aged balsamic vinegar, homemade pappardelle pasta with carbonara sauce, slow-cooked beef ragu with penne and a selection of authentic pizzas.
Villamoré, meanwhile, takes cues from its seaside setting, offering guests a laid-back ambience in the sun or shade, accompanied by tantalising Mediterranean bites and fine wines. For dinner, the restaurant sets the scene for more sophisticated fare, presenting a gourmet menu prepared by chef Silvio Carro paired with expertly crafted cocktails and attentive service.
For those looking for a spirited space to watch the latest and greatest in sports, enjoy a pre-dinner drink or a before-bed nightcap, K-West Sports Bar is the place to be. Complete with mansion-style interiors, plump leather seats, a billiard board and multiple televisions, it’s a venue dedicated to elevated entertainment.
Days spent in the Arabian sun call for bountiful refreshments, and this is precisely what Kempinski Palm Jumeirah’s Swim-Up Pool Bar delivers. Whether sitting in a private pool or beach cabana or doing laps in the warm pool waters, you can enjoy a wide selection of drinks and snacks at your leisure, thanks to this casual dining venue.
