Viceroy Hotels draws influences from Californian and Dubai for its second UAE hotel

Yabu Pushelberg, NAO Tanlyama and Associates combine for Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai.

Viceroy Hotel Group has opened the Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai, the brand’s second property in the UAE.

Designed by Toronto and New York-based Yabu Pushelberg and Tokyo-based studio NAO Tanlyama and Associates, the hotel's theme is a combination of California and Dubai. The property has 352 guestrooms, 85 suites and 40 residences.

The interiors of the property use natural materials and a palette of neutral tones, including the teal and bronze. Light and dark wood contrast layers of marble for a refined look against a hexagonal honeycomb motif. Contemporary furniture is paired with rich fabrics to juxtapose marbled bathrooms outfitted with handcut mosaic tiles and sculpted standalone tubs made from bronze.
