A two-bedroom, ocean-view suite in one of Dubai's most impressive hotels, with breakfast and more

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.

Afternoon Tea - Brunello
Reviewed 3 days ago

Had a very good experience at the Brunello restaurant for the afternoon tea. Service was exquisite by "Fahar" who was there to explain the dishes on the platter and presented us with the selection of teas. Fahar was always seconds away and was friendly enough to take photos of us, as it was our first time at the property. Will definitely come back for the pool and beach access

expensive hotel apartments, old furniture, poor service
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

for me, it is no repeat.
It was a bad experience from the check-in to check-out.
Very expensive for hotel apartments compared to the level and quality of services and compared to other places in the region.

My advice is read the reviews especially the recent ones, there is truth in all of them.
