Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, the luxury division of Hilton Worldwide, has opened its second hotel in the United Arab Emirates, the Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.
Located on the East Crescent of Palm Jumeirah, the new hotel offers views of the Arabian Gulf coastline and some Dubai landmarks.
Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah has 319 rooms and six restaurants and bars offering a variety of cuisine and drinks.
Hilton Worldwide luxury and lifestyle brands global head John Vanderslice said, "The increasing number of international arrivals into Dubai and the growing aspiration of visitors to explore the Emirate’s iconic island has created a demand which we can readily satisfy with the opening of Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah."
The new property has eight naturally-lit meeting spaces and a multi-purpose ballroom with the capacity to accommodate about 600 people.
Hilton Worldwide Middle East and Africa president Rudi Jagersbacher said, "The introduction of a Waldorf Astoria hotel to the Palm Jumeirah will enhance Dubai’s growing status as a vibrant, cosmopolitan city and further strengthen the city’s luxury credentials on the global stage."
Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah also offers recreational facilities including tennis and a full range of water sports, a 200m private beach of ivory sand and two temperature-controlled outdoor pools.
Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah general manager Jan Moenkedieck said, "Together with my team at Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah, we look forward to offering guests True Waldorf Service including a personal concierge for each guest while making a meaningful contribution to the growing Palm Jumeirah community."
