The Lowdown

The five-star Kempinski Hotel and Residences Palm Jumeirah is one of Dubai’s most palatial and impressive luxury hotels. Completed in 2011, this sprawling stay is imposing and dripping with opulent design – just what you’d expect from a five-star Dubai hotel, and of course, the Kempinski group is known worldwide for its attention to detail and outstanding properties. Set on the curved edge of the man-made Jumeirah Palm island, in one of the finest locations in Dubai, it has a prime waterfront setting and offers a private soft sandy beach and dazzling city skyline views at night.
The ornate architecture is grand and imposing: columns everywhere, as well as domed roofs. The interior design is ultra-luxe, too – we’re talking a full-service spa, a large swimming pool, expansive landscaped gardens, a 1,640-ft. private beach with loungers, a helpful and professional concierge service that can help to organize anything from a newspaper to a chauffeur-driven limousine, a Kempinski kid’s club and an elegant Italian restaurant. And don’t forget the refined bar, where you can sip a fine cognac, smoke a rare cigar in a plush leather armchair and take it all in.


The luxurious Ocean Two Bedroom suites are decorated in cream and chocolate tones with pale wood furnishings. Bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, flocked bedspreads, smooth upholstered headboards, fine-quality textiles, glossy floors, plush rugs and silver lamps and chandeliers (naturally). The living area is decorated in the same style and has a comfortable lounge, dining area, a terrace or balcony with stunning views and, unusually for a suite, a fully equipped kitchen.


The elegant Brunello Italian restaurant is inspired by the grandeur and sophistication of an Italian palazzo. This highly stylized look means the restaurant comes complete with elegant white columns, ornate ceilings and paneled walls, accented in gold. Also expect beautiful studded-back chairs, crisp white tablecloths and floor-to-ceiling windows, which offer views out to the terrace, gardens and pool area. The chic setting is perfectly suited to complement the authentic Italian dishes on the menu, which are prepared and served with a contemporary twist. A delicious breakfast buffet is also served here each day.  The K-West bar is a distinguished room with soft lighting, wood-paneled walls, a studded-leather bar and matching leather stools and armchairs. A thoroughly upmarket affair, it serves coffee, drinks and snacks during the day and cocktails, cognac, whiskey and rare cigars during the evening. 


The full-service Cinq Mondes spa offers a wide range of relaxing and healing treatments – everything from Ayurvedic and Balinese massage to a Radiance Scrub or traditional hammam experience. The products used were developed under the supervision of a pharmacy PhD in a Parisian laboratory, and they contain no parabens, silicon, mineral oil or artificial coloring. If you can’t bear to miss out on the gym while you’re away, then the fitness center is fully equipped and has personal trainers on hand.


Dubai is fast becoming one of the most luxurious resorts in the world, with some of the finest hotels ever built, and the Palm Jumeirah has a reputation as being the setting for some of them. With a fabulous location on the outer crescent of the Palm Jumeirah, the Kempinski has more than 20,000 sq. ft. of private grounds, and it’s literally just a few steps to a beach of more than 1,000 ft.With year-round sunshine, Dubai is the perfect location for taking advantage of water parks, world-class golfing, tennis clubs, yachting and designer shopping in dazzling shopping malls, all of which happen to abound. You can even go out into the desert and cruise up and down the sand dunes in a buggy. If you want it, then Dubai probably has it.

I recently stayed at Kempinski hotel for a few days with my family and I have a few things to say about this...

Firstly we arrived at 3am in the morning so we was all tired... I had 3 kids who were exhausted from the flight And wanted to get some sleep

When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with a warm smile by Ahmad, and that is when it all started

Ahmad could see it was very late and could see the tiredness on our faces

He quickly booked us in and got the guys to send the luggage into our room before we even stepped into it..
From then every time we were greeted with warm ness and happiness.
He catered for all our needs
It was my daughters birthday and he made sure the staff were fully aware of the surprise we wanted to throw for her. He even gave a complimentary cake!

The hotel was amazing to say the least
Clean rooms
Lovely private beach away from the hustle of the city and an amazing pool bar!!

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND everybody to book this hotel and get a taste for yourself.

Be sure to ask for Ahmad.. my experience with him and Kempinski was a delight
Thank you for all your help!!

I visited property for Day Access. Upon arrival I was escorted to the Brunello restaurant. This is one of the most upscale dining venues I visited in Dubai. Truly elegant room. The food service was exceptional and offerings were of highest quality. In addition to buffet there was extensive selection of custom made to order offerings. I had the free range scrambled eggs. I asked that they be prepared w cream and was accommodated request. After a leisurely breakfast I asked about changing to beach attire. I was directed to the changing room. The room attendant offered a complimentary locker to use for the day. The pool and beach at property are beautiful and service is great.
Upon leaving for the day I was able to use shower and changed. I had a reservation to see LaPerle and went to valet. There were no cabs and after 10 minute wait the attendant arranged for a private car to take me (at a rate that was similar to Red Cab fare.)I made it to the show on time.
start to finish a luxury experience.

Thanks Kempinski Palm Dubai!

Best pool!

Not sure about you, but I prefer a pool with a pool bar that’s not very crowded! This hotel has, probably, my favorite pool, not just in town, but in many of the cities I have visited. I have become a regular, coming out here almost every other week. The staff are very friendly, and at the bar ask for Yasin and Krishna for an amazing drink, and don’t forget to order their famous chips!
