For dining, the property will have a restaurant with city views on the 51st floor, as well as an all-day restaurant.

The hotel will have access to Al Ittihad Park, Palm Jumeirah’s 1.1 million square feet green oasis that has more than 60 varieties of plants indigenous to the UAE and a 3.2 kilometer looped running track. The Palm Monorail, which is connected to the Dubai Tram and Dubai Metro, will also be accessible.

The Palm Tower will have a public rooftop viewing deck on the 52nd floor. The tower will be connected to the Nakheel Mall that spans 4.4 million square feet with 350 shops, a 15-screen Vox cinema, 12 restaurants on its roof terrace, as well as a medical center and fitness complex.
