CHICAGO – Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) announced today the official opening of Andaz Dubai The Palm. Joining Andaz hotels in top destinations around the world, such as Amsterdam, London, New York, Tokyo, Seoul and Shanghai, the latest addition marks the first Andaz-branded hotel in Dubai and the second in the United Arab Emirates, following the opening of Andaz Capital Gate, Abu Dhabi in 2018.
Andaz, Hyatt’s luxury lifestyle brand, is rooted in local culture, immersing guests in elevated sensory experiences that celebrate the uniqueness of each property and its surroundings. Located in the heart of Palm Jumeirah, the hotel rests on the world’s most iconic man-made island and offers travelers inspiring local programming, reflecting Dubai’s rich culture and heritage. Andaz Dubai The Palm gives guests access to a private beach, as well as to several of Dubai’s attractions, including the Nakheel Mall, Dubai Mall, Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Beach and Mall of the Emirates.
“The bustling Palm Jumeirah island serves as the ideal location for guests to immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of Dubai,” said Kifah Bin Hussein, general manager, Andaz Dubai The Palm. “The hotel is created for the inquisitive traveler. Set in a vicinity known for luxury and exclusivity, Andaz Dubai The Palm reflects the city’s eclectic style, showcased through local artist exhibitions and unique culinary offerings.”
Concept & Design
Andaz Dubai The Palm is home to local art, embellished on the walls of the hotel in pop-up style exhibitions. The property breaks the mold with its unscripted check-in and check-out experience, without the barriers of a front desk or a queue. The journey of modern refinement commences from the moment guests arrive and transcends into every service offered.
Rooms & Suites
Encompassing 217 guestrooms, including 34 suites, and 116 residences, the property incorporates the sights, scents and textures of Dubai into every aspect of the room design. The ideal space to relax, unwind and entertain, the guestrooms are inspired by the Emirati culture with bespoke artwork and luxury amenities.
The hotel features 31 Andaz Suites, one Terrace Suite, one Prince Suite and one Royal Suite, each made with modern, minimalistic interiors and fitted with premium amenities, including separate living and dining areas, a terrace, a rain shower and a deep soaking tub.
Dining & Drinking
Home to five distinct dining venues that offer an abundance of local flavors and sensory experiences, Andaz Dubai The Palm creates a vibrant social scene through a medley of global and traditional Middle Eastern influences.
The Locale, a neighborhood eatery on the hotel’s ground floor featuring an alfresco terrace, combines culinary stories from around the city and weaves a blanket of flavors that only Dubai has to offer. The restaurant is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The sleek and stylish Hanami is a contemporary take on Japanese Izakaya, inspired by cherry blossom-gazing parties popular in Japan during Sakura season. Artfully crafted cocktails and sharing plates can be enjoyed against a backdrop of inspiring music and unobstructed skyline views from the 15th floor.
For the discerning guest, Knox is an underground speakeasy bar that challenges the status quo with a heady mix of contemporary mixology in an industrial-esque space with vintage rugs and vibrant furniture.
Expected to open in the second half of 2020 and taking its name from the friendly Macaw parrot, La Coco is a neighborhood beach club and lounge that offers casual bites and drinks poolside, so guests can enjoy a leisurely day, be it families on a fun day out or couples enjoying a sunset moment.
Guests can seek solace at The Andaz Lounge, the ‘anti-office’ that evokes the coziest of dens with plush seating, large tables, a library of books and a full-service bar. Decked in loud colors and featuring striking art pieces, the space stimulates engaging conversations over coffee or cocktails.
Nestled on the 14th floor is the hotel’s spa, Ora, a tranquil haven of relaxation with a carefully curated menu of facial and body treatments. On the same floor, guests will discover the adults-only Cabana pool area and state-of-the-art fitness center that completes the wellness experience.
Offering approximately 6,350 square feet (590 square meters) of fluid, eclectic studio spaces, Andaz Dubai The Palm is a vibrant setting for both stylish social and corporate events.
