Kempinski Expands Portfolio in Middle East and Africa
Outstanding new destinations will be added to the Middle East and Africa portfolio of Kempinski Hotels in the coming months and throughout 2018, as Kempinski continues to strengthen its foothold in the region’s luxury segment with a portfolio revamp.
With two prestigious openings in the pipeline and additional projects underway in the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Saudi Arabia and Africa, Kempinski is making significant investments in prestige properties in the region to satisfy growing demand for authentic luxury hospitality.
In line with the long-term vision for Middle East and Africa, Kempinski targets operating luxury hotels in each key city within the GCC, as well actively expanding presence through selective growth in exciting destinations in Africa.
Kempinski Hotel Muscat, Muscat, Oman: With 310 rooms, 40 suites and two presidential suites, Kempinski Muscat will be an unparalleled luxury destination in the capital of Oman.
Next to the Kempinski Hotel Muscat, the Kempinski Residences features 77 serviced apartments for long stays and leasings. Eight unique restaurants and bars offer a wide culinary range – inside and under the open sky.
Emerald Palace Kempinski Palm Jumeirah Dubai, Dubai/United Arab Emirates: With its opening scheduled in 2018, this legendary European Palace in Dubai will complement the Kempinski Hotel & Residences Palm Jumeirah, opened in 2011.
The outstanding palace hotel will feature 389 rooms and suites. Rooms start at a size of 67 square metres and are thus the largest rooms in this category on the Palm.
Created in 1897, Kempinski Hotels is Europe’s oldest luxury hotel group. Kempinski now comprises a portfolio of 76 five-star hotels and residences in 31 countries in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
