Dukes Dubai, a five-star hotel that sits on the western trunk of Palm Jumeirah, undergoes its soft opening today.
It is the first overseas Dukes property, a popular destination hub in London for GCC locals.
The first six floors of the 15-floor property will be in service, as well as the hotel’s signature outlet Great British Restaurant (GBR) and Dukes Bar.
Upon completion, Dukes Dubai will boast 273 rooms including 64 suites, with a ladies-only Liberty Duchess floor featuring 20 rooms.
As well as 227 fully furnished hotel apartments and six dining options.
“Dubai is an increasingly popular destination for travelers from the UK, especially during the Christmas and New Year period and having the opportunity to begin our soft opening period on 28th December, we didn’t hesitate to open our doors,” said Debrah Dhugga, managing director of Dukes Dubai and Dukes London.
Dukes Dubai has a completion date set in early 2017.
It will feature traditional Northern Indian restaurant Khyber.
