Andaz Dubai The Palm has debuted, the second under Hyatt’s lifestyle Andaz brand to open in the United Arab Emirates. This follows the opening of Andaz Capital Gate, Abu Dhabi in 2018.

Andaz, Hyatt’s luxury lifestyle brand, is rooted in local culture. The Palm property, located in the heart of Palm Jumeirah, reflects Dubai’s rich culture and heritage. Andaz Dubai The Palm gives guests access to a private beach, as well as to several of Dubai’s attractions, including the Nakheel Mall, Dubai Mall, Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Beach and Mall of the Emirates.

“The bustling Palm Jumeirah island serves as the ideal location for guests to immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of Dubai,” said Kifah Bin Hussein, general manager, Andaz Dubai The Palm, in a statement. “The hotel is created for the inquisitive traveler. Set in a vicinity known for luxury and exclusivity, Andaz Dubai The Palm reflects the city’s eclectic style, showcased through local artist exhibitions and unique culinary offerings.”

Encompassing 217 guestrooms, including 34 suites, and 116 residences, the property incorporates the sights, scents and textures of Dubai into the room design. The hotel features 31 Andaz Suites, one Terrace Suite, one Prince Suite and one Royal Suite, each made with modern, minimalistic interiors and fitted with premium amenities, including separate living and dining areas, a terrace, a rain shower and a deep soaking tub.

Home to five distinct dining venues that offer an abundance of local flavors and sensory experiences, Andaz Dubai The Palm creates a vibrant social scene through a medley of global and traditional Middle Eastern influences.

The Locale, a neighborhood eatery on the hotel’s ground floor featuring an alfresco terrace, is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Hanami is a contemporary take on Japanese Izakaya, inspired by cherry blossom-gazing parties popular in Japan during Sakura season. Artfully crafted cocktails and sharing plates can be enjoyed against a backdrop of inspiring music and unobstructed skyline views from the 15th floor.

For the discerning guest, Knox is an underground speakeasy bar with a heady mix of contemporary mixology in an industrial-esque space with vintage rugs and vibrant furniture.

Expected to open in the second half of 2020 and taking its name from the friendly Macaw parrot, La Coco is a neighborhood beach club and lounge that offers casual bites and drinks poolside, so guests can enjoy a leisurely day, be it families on a fun day out or couples enjoying a sunset moment.

Guests can seek solace at The Andaz Lounge, which evokes a cozy den with plush seating, large tables, a library of books and a full-service bar. Decked in loud colors and featuring striking art pieces, the space stimulates engaging conversations over coffee or cocktails.

Nestled on the 14th floor is the hotel’s spa, Ora, as well as the adults-only Cabana pool area and fitness center.
