DUKES Dubai Now Open to the Public

DUKES Dubai lobby

Dubai has been furnished with a quintessentially British offering with the opening of the new five star DUKES Dubai hotel on the west trunk of Palm Jumeirah. This is the first international property for DUKES, which has proven a hugely popular destination with GCC visitors in London. The hotel, which soft-opened for training in December, consists of 279 guestrooms including 64 suites, with a ladies-only Liberty Duchess floor featuring 20 rooms, as well as 227 fully furnished hotel apartments. “DUKES Dubai brings the very best of British hospitality to the emirate. The soft opening of the hotel in December was a great success and we have already received rave reviews. We look forward to welcoming visitors and treating them to this unique experience,” said Abdulla Bin Sulayem, CEO, Seven Tides. Serving modern British brasserie-style cuisine, the hotel’s signature outlet Great British Restaurant (GBR) will serve quality British produce in a dramatic setting overlooking the Gulf. “I currently divide my time between London and Dubai and it has given me great insight into the pent-up demand, expectations and trends of British travelers, essentially it helps me to take the pulse of the British outbound market. I am confident that our offering will not only match, it will exceed their expectations – brand loyalty is the key to success for DUKES Dubai,” said Debrah Dhugga, Managing Director of DUKES Dubai and DUKES London.
