This brand new hotel is slated to open in September 2021. When it does, it will have plenty of airy and spacious rooms and suites, some with sea views, and of course a luxury spa.

St. Regis Dubai, The Palm

Where: Main trunk

You wouldn’t have to be eagle-eyed if you’ve visited the Palm recently to notice the huge tower construction that rises up next to Nakheel Mall. The Palm Jumeirah St Regis will be a 289 room hotel – with the rooms spanning the first 18 floors of The Palm Tower, while the upper floors of the building will be made up of 432 luxury apartments. Originally pipped for Q4 2020, the hotel’s website now states that it will open in May 2021. However the pool and restaurants are not expected to open until Q4 2021. AURA Skypool will also open as part of a three-floor luxe dining and entertainment destination atop Palm Tower. One floor above on level 51 the famed SUSHISAMBA restaurant will open, serving up a mix of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine; while the 52nd floor will play host to the Palm Tower’s much-awaited viewing deck, aptly called The View.
