DUBAI, UAE—Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts today announced the opening of Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah, continuing the brand’s global expansion. With views of the Arabian Gulf coastline and some of Dubai’s landmarks, the Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah offers 319 guestrooms.
John T.A. Vanderslice, global head of luxury and lifestyle brands, Hilton Worldwide, stated: “Waldorf Astoria’s celebrated lineage combined with the brand’s definition of luxury is enjoyed by discerning global luxury travellers worldwide. 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.”
From arrival to departure, guests of Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah are welcomed by True Waldorf Service—a service initiative that assigns a personal concierge to each qualified guest who acts as their primary contact, before, during and after a stay, to guarantee every want and request is met.
Positioned on the East Crescent of Palm Jumeirah, Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah will offer a selection of six restaurants and bars including the New York inspired Social by Heinz Beck, an eatery by European chef and author Heinz Beck.
