Kempinski to open world’s first floating hotel in Dubai in 2023

Munich-headquartered Kempinski Hotels will open in Dubai in 2023, the world’s first floating hotel complex with 12 luxury villas grouped with the possibility to sail to other anchorages at times, Trade Arabia reports.
Dubbed Kempinski Floating Palace will be established next to one of the most exclusive beach stretches in Dubai on Jumeirah Beach Road and will boast 156-room and suite hotel or villas.
The main building of this floating palace, structured in four parts, the Bahraini media notes, 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 center of the hotel.
Guests will be brought to the hotel by speed boat or arrive directly with their own boats. A connected floating helipad next to an impressive yacht parking deck for up to 16 yachts, allows discerning guests to arrive in style, the media adds.
“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.
“The highly innovative project by Seagate Shipyard convinces not only by its high-end technology, but also through impeccable style and design.”
