Marriott Hotels has announced its first ever hotel opening in the United Arab Emirates with the launch of Marriott Resort Palm Jumeirah, Dubai.

Tucked away along the pristine golden West Beach of an idyllic island, the beachside haven is a paradise for those seeking an escape from their everyday lives. Spread over an expansive 75,000 square feet of white sand seafront, it offers a variety of activities and amenities that are sure to please any traveler.

"As one of the world’s most lively leisure destinations and a hub for business travelers, Dubai is an ideal location for a flagship Marriott Hotels property,” said Drew Iddings, Vice President and Global Brand Leader, Marriott Hotels. “With the opening of this resort, we continue to live our legacy of wonderful hospitality, and build momentum for the brand’s evolution and modern appeal that is tailormade for our guests to empower their every pursuit.”

The 608 contemporary guestrooms and suites of the resort boast breathtaking ocean views from floor-to-ceiling windows and private balconies, allowing guests to fully immerse themselves in the peaceful ambience of the beach scenery. Every room is equipped with every comfort imaginable, ensuring a truly luxurious stay.

A pillow menu offers a selection of pillows to suit every preference, and mood lighting allows you to set the perfect ambiance for your stay. Additionally, guests can relax in spacious bathtubs with large windows overlooking the beachfront. 

With an eclectic mix of new-to-the-region global restaurant brands, born-in-the-UAE concepts, and signature Marriott Hotel offerings, the resort’s 10 dining venues bring flavors, influences, and ideas from Japan, Peru, Italy, Korea, and the Levant.
