Marriott International’s very first Aloft-branded property in Dubai has officially opened its doors on Palm Jumeirah.
The design-led Aloft Palm Jumeirah delivers a unique, high-tech lifestyle experience to its guests. The property comprises 206 loft-inspired rooms offering views across the Arabian Gulf. All rooms feature the brand’s signature plush bed, a walk-in shower, custom amenities by Bliss Spa, free WiFi and 49-inch LCD TVs linked to a Plug & Play connectivity panel. Rooms are also equipped with SPG Keyless, a mobile check-in system which allows guests to use their mobile phones as room keys.
In an ideal location, the property is situated 45 minutes from Dubai International Airport and 90 minutes from Abu Dhabi International Airport. It also offers easy access to a number of attractions, including Aquaventure Waterpark and Skydive Dubai.
Enthusing on the launch was president and managing director – Middle East and Africa, Marriott International, Alex Kyriakidis: “We are thrilled to celebrate the opening of our first Aloft in Dubai, situated on one of the world’s most sought-after destinations – the Palm Jumeirah. We see a strong demand for Aloft properties in the region as the brand continues to re-define the traditional hotel experience with its vision and innovation. In the UAE alone, the brand will double its portfolio in the next three years with five new openings.”
Facilities at the newly opened property include six dining and social spaces; a 24 hour Recharge fitness centre and Splash pool; two on-site Tactic meeting rooms with outdoor function spaces; plus much more.

The offering is unique to Palm Jumeirah and brings a contemporary and independent vibe to the destination.”
