Dubai Is getting a floating resort - complete with an overwater helipad and luxury houseboat villas.
Set to open in 2023, the new Kempinski Floating Palace is anchored next to one of the most exclusive beach stretches in Dubai on Jumeirah Beach Road. The resort consists of a main floating building with 156 rooms and suites. This building is surrounded by 12 exclusive eco-villas that not only float, but can also be moved around to other anchorage points like a houseboat.
Beyond the accommodations, the main building of the five-star Kempinski Floating Palace also offers exclusive gourmet restaurants and bars, a spa and multiple pools, boutique shops, and banquet areas for events. The building is structured in four parts with a glass pyramid connecting them through the middle. The design allows for larger yachts to drive right through the center of it. And since the most discerning luxury travelers are expected to check in to this resort when it opens, next door to the main building is also a floating helipad and parking for up to 16 yachts.
