The 319-room Waldorf Astoria hotel on Dubai's man-made Palm Jumeirah island has eight naturally-lit meeting rooms with a multi-purpose ballroom that can host up to 600 people.

The hotel has six restaurants and bars, a 200m private sandy beach, two outdoor pools, tennis courts and water sports facilities.

The hotel is located on the East Crescent of the Palm Jumeirah island and is 35 minutes from Dubai International airport.

The property is Waldorf Astoria's second hotel to open in the UAE, with the Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah having opened last year.

Rudi Jagersbacher, president of Hilton Worldwide Middle East and Africa, said: "There has been tremendous anticipation ahead of the opening of Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah. The introduction of a Waldorf Astoria hotel to the Palm Jumeirah will enhance Dubai’s growing status as a vibrant, cosmopolitan city and further strengthen the city’s luxury credentials on the global stage."  

The Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah hotel is part of Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, the Hilton Worldwide luxury hotel brand.
