This weekend, Viceroy Hotel Group (VHG) raised the curtains to unveil Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai, a stunning beachfront resort at the center of Dubai's thriving hospitality landscape. Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai is home to 477 rooms and suites, including 352 guestrooms, 85 suites and 40 hotel apartments located across 16 floors. Designed by Yabu Pushelberg and NAO Taniyama and Associates, this Icon Collection masterpiece showcases sweeping, unobstructed views of the surrounding city, from the Dubai Marina to the Burj Khalifa. The arrival of Viceroy in Dubai marks the modern luxury hospitality group's second foray into the UAE, bringing a fusion of California cool with Dubai sensation.
"Preparation for the opening of Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai has been an unforgettable journey," comments Bill Walshe, CEO of Viceroy Hotel Group. "I remember my very first meeting with Kabir Mulchandani of SKAI Holdings, the developer, owner and visionary behind the entire development, and now, four years later, we have opened an incredible new experience for Viceroy guests, one where Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai has redefined modern luxury hospitality in this vibrant destination. I am extremely proud of General Manager Mikael Svensson, and the entire Viceroy team for how they have launched this incredible hotel."
The opening of Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai marks the next step of VHG's aggressive and expansive growth strategy over the next few years, with forthcoming properties slated for Argentina, Chicago, Colombia, Panama, Portugal and Turkey.
Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai's glass cube structure creates a sense of anticipation. At center, a first-of-its-kind glass cube towers at 15 meters by 15 meters, an engineering feat. The cube seemingly floats in front of the hotel, allowing natural light to flood in and provides a direct view through to the resort's runway like 60-meter pool, the ocean and beyond.
Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai's interiors feature clean lines, natural materials and a standout design. Glamorous interiors feature a calming palette of neutral colors alongside Viceroy's signature teal, with brushed bronze finishes adding a warm glow. Light and dark wood contrasts with layers of marble, creating balance and refinement, while a recurring honeycomb hexagonal pattern runs throughout. Contemporary furniture and rich fabrics similarly contrast with Greek and Italian marbled bathrooms that feature hand cut mosaic tiling and bronze sculptured standalone bathtubs.
