Langham to open new resort in Dubai's Palm Jumeirah by 2015

Langham Hospitality announced its entrance into Dubai, with plans to open a 323-room resort on the Palm Jumeirah archipelago. 

This is not only the first Middle Eastern property for the Hong-Kong based Langham, but also the group's first resort in its global collection, according to Gulf Business. 

The resort will have 53 one and two-bedroom suites, and all rooms will have outdoor terraces and views facing the sea.

Arabian Business reported that Langham Hospitality signed an agreement with DAS Real Estate to manage The Langham, Palm Jumeirah resort. The resort will have eight separate F&B outlets, including a Japanese restaurant, a waterfront seafood outlet, a breakfast room, an Arabic and Italian fusion café, an all-day restaurant offering international buffet and a la carte selections, a beach restaurant and a juice bar. A club Lounge will also be available on the property, offering complimentary F&B and a concierge service.

The property's recreation facilities will amount to nearly 13,000 square feet across two floors. The resort's Chuan Spa will have 26 treatment rooms, and the fitness center will have a form pool and exercise studio. A 1,459-square-foot Kids Club will also be available.

"We are very much looking forward to introducing The Langham's rich heritage and impeccable service values to Dubai," Robert Warman, CEO of Langham Hospitality Group, told Hospitality Net. "The trifecta of this hotel's spectacular location on the iconic Palm Jumeirah, Dubai's winning bid to host the World Expo in 2020, and The Langham's beautiful design aesthetics, make it the perfect time to debut our first resort in this dynamic destination."
