Wayfarer TV: inside the luxurious Emerald Palace Kempinski hotel in Dubai

by James Wilkinson

One of the most talked about new hotels in Dubai is the Emerald Palace Kempinski, which debuted on Palm Jumeirah in late 2018.

It is impressive from the moment you walk in, thanks in part to the 391-room luxury hotel being designed in the style of an 18th century European palace from the lobby – which features a chandelier containing 40,000 Swarovski crystals – through to the guest rooms and gardens.

Where the hotel also impresses is through its impeccable service, world-class day spa, its 500-metre long white sand beach, palatial sized swimming pool and seven bars and restaurants, including the first Alain Ducasse dining room in the Middle East.

To find out more about the property, Wayfarer host, James Gregory Wilkinson, spoke exclusively to Emerald Palace Kempinski Dubai’s Managing Director Margaret Paul.
