Royal Central Hotel opens on The Palm

Royal Central Hotel The Palm has just opened its doors in Dubai.

The 207-room property is on the East Crescent of the Palm Jumeirah and offers guests uninterrupted views of its most notable neighbours Atlantis The Palm and the Burj Al Arab.

The five-star resort is in its soft-opening phase, and according to parent company Central Hotels, is “fun, funky and family-friendly”.

The property, which is 25 kilometres from Dubai International Airport, has three room categories to choose from – premium, superior and palm suites – along with five dining options that cover off everything from casual food to fine-dining.

Ya Bahr is the hotel’s Lebanese seafood spot with sea views, while Choi is the Japanese offering boasting a modern menu. Hush Beach Bar will appeal to those with an interest in Latino-style street food and is positioned to make the most of its spot on the tip of The Palm. All-day dining concept Le Maison Mediterranean Eatery and Baristas’ Corner, which is as the name suggests, a coffee/pastry spot, round out the F&B landscape.

The hotel also has its own private beach, an outdoor infinity pool, gym and health spa.

Chairman of Central Hotels Ahmad Al Abdulla said of the opening: “We are very excited to announce the soft opening of the Royal Central Hotel The Palm. The hotel has been designed to make travel seamless and enjoyable with our unique ‘Stay Fresh’ concept.”

At this stage there doesn’t appear to be a booking portal on the Central Hotels website, for details email
