Effective January 1, 2024, Kempinski Hotels has officially renamed two Emaar Hospitality Group properties in Dubai.
Kempinski recently signed a partnership with Abu Dhabi National Hotels to re-flag Address Boulevard and Address Dubai Mall, which is now known as Kempinski The Boulevard Dubai and Kempinski Central Avenue Dubai.
The 72-story Kempinski The Boulevard Dubai, located in central Dubai, close to Dubai Mall, Dubai Opera and Burj Khalifa, features 198 rooms and suites and a collection of residences.
Food and drink options here include brasserie-style cuisine served in The Living Room, The Kitchen, The Collection Room and The Dining Room, as well as several private dining areas for intimate gatherings and an outdoor terrace.
The hotel also has a 760 m² spa, which features hammams and salt and steam rooms. Outside, there are also three swimming pools on the property.
Near that property is the Kempinski Hotel Central Avenue Dubai which has 245 rooms and suites. Each has its own private balcony with views of downtown Dubai, the Burj Khalifa or the city skyline.
In addition to the two new properties, Dubai is home to the Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates and the Kempinski Hotel & Residences Palm Jumeirah.
When it opens in 2025, Kempinski Residences The Creek Dubai will become the first private standalone Kempinski residences in the region.
“As one of the first luxury hotel companies to gain a foothold in the UAE in the late 1990s, Kempinski has a well-established reputation for unsurpassed quality and service. After a record year of performance, we will continue to grow our portfolio across the region in 2024 and beyond,” said René Nijhof, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Kempinski.
“Kempinski has been present in the Middle East for over 26 years and it remains one of the most dynamic and exciting parts of the world for us,” Nijhof added.
Khalid Anib, CEO of Abu Dhabi National Hotels, said: “We are delighted to see the Kempinski flag flying over two of our most prestigious properties in Dubai. The Kempinski brand is a symbol of excellence that represents the best of European hospitality. “The company’s strong track record and experience in the region make it an ideal partner to take these two hotels into the next era.”
Recently, Abu Dhabi National Hotels also announced plans to reflag three of its properties in Dubai under Marriott’s JW and Autograph Collection brands.
Effective January 1, 2024, The Address Dubai Marina is now known as JW Marriott Hotel Marina, while Vida Downtown Dubai Hotel will become Hotel Boulevard, Autograph Collection, and Manzil Downtown Dubai Hotel will be renamed The Heritage Hotel, Autograph Collection.
