Check out the world’s first floating hotel


Kempinski Floating Palace is opening in Dubai (where else?) as a floating building around which 12 likewise floating luxury villas are grouped with the possibility to sail to other anchorages at times.

 

Anchored next to one of the most exclusive beach stretches in Dubai on Jumeirah Beach Road, highly sought after by luxury travellers and locals alike for its vibrant hotels and F&B scene, guests are brought to the 156-room and suite hotel or their villas by speed boat or arrive directly with their own boats.

 

 

Reflecting contemporary lifestyle in the UAE, the new Kempinski Floating Palace is an addition and special touch to the hotel’s world in Dubai, long known for unparalleled achievements and attracting world tourism. This project will be another breakthrough for the already spectacular tourism industry of the country.

 

The main building of this floating palace, structured in four parts, is connected in the middle by a glass pyramid and offers every luxury of a 5-star hotel, from exclusive gourmet restaurants, bars, spa, pools to boutiques, banquet areas and the possibility for even larger yachts to sail in and out at the centre of the hotel.

 

The 12 luxury villas, connected by pontoons, are partly for sale but also for rent by hotel guests and benefit from all the services offered at the hotel. High-quality and elegant design over two floors with a roof terrace and infinity pool, respectively twelve villas with each of two, three or four bedrooms, crew and staff rooms as well as indoor and outdoor living rooms characterise the luxury houseboats with large panoramic windows and all the technical features of a smart home. Cruising at a maximum speed of 6 nautical miles, the villas are equipped with solar panels and are designed to be environmentally friendly.

 

"We are delighted to be able to offer our guests in Dubai such a first experience from 2023 onwards, combining the destination's reputation as a high-tech city with the timeless European elegance of Kempinski Hotels", says Bernold Schroeder, Chief Executive Officer of Kempinski Group and Chairman of the Management Board of Kempinski AG.
