Langham Plans Dubai Palm Jumeirah Hotel For 2015

Luxury Hong Kong-based hotel company makes its first foray into the Middle East and chooses Dubai as the first resort in its global collection.

Palm Jumeirah continues to be a magnet for the world’s leading hospitality brands with news that the Langham Hospitality Group will open a 323-room resort next year.

The resort marks two firsts for the Hong Kong-based hotel company, its first foray into the Middle East and the first resort in its global collection.

All rooms and suites will have expansive outdoor terraces and sea-front views. There will be 53 one and two-bedroom suites, ranging from 63 to 236 square metres, and 22 will feature individual plunge pools.

Headlining the culinary options will be Palm Court, an elegant lounge modelled after its namesake at The Langham, London, the first grand hotel to serve traditional afternoon tea in 1865. The resort’s interiors will reflect the brand’s heritage.

Other F&B venues will include a Japanese restaurant, a waterfront seafood outlet, a ‘niche’ breakfast room, an Arabic and Italian fusion café, an all-day restaurant featuring international buffet and a la carte selections, a beach restaurant and a juice bar that offers light snacks and refreshments.

Among the novel features will be a dedicated Travellers Lounge which will provide facilities and comforts for early arrival or late departure flyers. The Langham signature pink roses will be specially grown at the resort.

The hotel will also feature a two-floor recreational facility spanning 4,000sqm, pool, gym, Kids Club and 26 treatment-room Chuan Spa. A Club Lounge will offer complimentary food and beverage presentations throughout the day and dedicated concierge service.
