Raffles to open second Dubai location
POSTED 07 Dec 2017 . BY Jane Kitchen
Raffles has announced plans to open a new resort on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah in 2021.

The first beachside resort for Raffles in Dubai and the tallest structure on Palm Jumeirah, it will be located in the twin towers of the PALM360, which is being developed by Dubai-based developer Nakheel.

The PALM360 will be almost 260m (850ft) high, and will include a 155m-long (508ft) sky pool connecting two towers 170m (558ft) above the ground.

The Raffles The Palm Dubai hotel will include 125 bedrooms along with “high-quality, well-equipped fitness and wellbeing facilities” at the Raffles Spa, health club and tennis court.

The PALM360 will also include 359 Raffles-branded Residences, including 16 penthouses that will each have their own infinity pool, gym and cinema.

Raffles, part of AccorHotels’ luxury portfolio, has operated another location, the Raffles Dubai, for the past 10 years.

“The development of Raffles The Palm Dubai Hotel and Raffles Residences PALM360 not only cements our luxury portfolio on a landmark leisure destination, but also demonstrates our dedication to developing the most distinct hospitality concepts,” said Sebastien Bazin, chair and CEO of AccorHotels.

PALM360 joins 16 other hotels that form part of Nakheel’s US$1.3bn (€1.10bn, £970m) hospitality expansion programme, which is set to deliver close to 6,000 rooms and hotel apartments across Dubai.
