Raffles Resort is all set to open on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah in 2021. This will be the brand’s very first beach resort in the region, and will open eight new restaurants and bars in Raffles Palm Dubai.

One of Palm Jumeirah’s Western Crescent hotel locations is going to transform into a new get up, with the Emerald Palace to become the Middle East’s first Raffles Resort when it opens by the end of this year. The Raffles The Palm Dubai will house 389 rooms, suites and villas, all with access to Raffles’ renowned butler service. This luxurious property is going to be spread out occupying the 100,000 sqm, east- and will be facing Burj Al Arab property.  Raffles The Palm Dubai will be positioned on the world’s largest man-made island and archipelago. Raffles Palm Dubai facilities will be offering the beachfront hotel include a cinema, kids’ and teens’ clubs, and a dedicated children’s swimming pool, alongside water-sports including paddle boarding and diving courses.

The property is scheduled to open between October and December 2021. Raffles Palm Dubai will be Accor group’s recent promotion in Dubai city  after Taiko, Brasserie Boulud and The Nine Gastropub at Sofitel Dubai The Obelisk. Raffles The Palm Dubai will also have a Cinq Mondes Spa, with 23 treatment rooms and two private spa suites, along with Dubai’s largest indoor swimming pool. The group continues its expansion in the region with its first Raffles resort in the Middle East.

Accor is known to be one of the world’s leading hospitality groups. They are opening its first Raffles Resort in the Middle East on the iconic Palm Jumeira of Dubai. This resort on Palm Dubai will be an addition to Accor’s already existing luxury hospitality portfolio in Dubai. Accor has partnered with Emerald Palace Group (EGP) for the project.

“This is a very exciting opportunity for us,” says Mark Willis, CEO of Accor India, Middle East, Africa and Turkey. “There are very few beach resort plots left in Dubai and none on the Palm Jumeirah. The size of the property and its location perfectly lends itself to provide a prestigious address for the Raffles brand.”
