Dubai –Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Hilton Worldwide’s luxury brand, has announced the opening of the Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah, continuing the brand’s global expansion. 

With breath-taking views of the Arabian Gulf coastline and some of Dubai’s famous landmarks, the 319-room Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah exudes the true luxury, world class amenities and sophistication for which the brand is known.

From arrival to departure, guests of Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeriah are not only embraced by this iconic hotel, but also welcomed by True Waldorf Service – a service initiative that assigns a personal concierge to each qualified guest who acts as their primary contact, before, during and – an industry first – after a stay, to guarantee every want and request is met.



Positioned on the East Crescent of Palm Jumeirah and boasting a wealth of superior services, amenities at Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah fittingly reflect the inspirational environments of the brand.  Guests will be spoilt for choice with a selection of six sumptuous restaurants and bars offering the finest cuisine and drinks including a jewel in the culinary crown, the New York inspired Social by Heinz Beck, a fashionably stylish eatery by multi-award winning master of gastronomy, European chef and author Heinz Beck.



The hotel also features other mouth-watering options such as Lao, bringing innovative, stylish south-east Asian contemporary dining; Mezzerie, locally-inspired arabesque dining at its most luxurious; Palm Avenue, a chic oasis in the heart of the hotel’s elegant gardens and Serafina, an authentic and refined Venetian offering. 

The centre piece of the hotel is Peacock Alley, named after the famous high-society promenade lounge which connected the original Waldorf and Astoria hotels in New York and was known as a place to see and be seen.  Also drawing on the illustrious Waldorf Astoria heritage is the addition of a stunning lobby clock.



Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah boasts an abundance of impressive recreational facilities including tennis and a full range of water sports.  To tempt those guests seeking to relax and refresh, the hotel offers a 200 meter private beach of ivory sand and two temperature-controlled outdoor pools.  The addition of a children’s club will also ensure young guests are kept entertained. 

Befitting of a Waldorf Astoria hotel, a luxurious Waldorf Astoria Spa will offer bespoke treatments that blend traditional philosophies with signature techniques to create therapies designed to balance, revive and rejuvenate. Other key features include eight naturally-lit meeting spaces and an exceptional 600-capacity, multi-purpose ballroom.

Stretching 5km out to sea, Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah island has been described as a miracle of engineering.  Built in the shape of a palm tree with a trunk, fronds and a surrounding 11km crescent highway, the island adds 78km to the Dubai shoreline and is now a recognised and popular luxury destination for residents and tourists seeking a distinctive and unforgettable stay in the city.
