A ROYAL RETREAT
Seven Tides, the luxury property developer and holding company based in Dubai, has revealed the DUKES Oceana, its newest project located at Palm Jumeriah. The exciting new venture will see a quintessentially English style brought to the city’s already luxury offering of hospitality. This is the first international move for the DUKES brand, whose flagship hotel is DUKES London and a popular destination choice for travellers from the GCC. Abdulla bin Sulayem, the CEO of Seven Tides, commented, “with this launch we are bringing quintessential British charm and style to the UAE and blending it with cosmopolitan luxury to create a unique residence and hotel situated in the heart of Dubai’s most desirable island community, Palm Jumeirah.” The hotel will boast 273 rooms as well as leisure and entertainment facilities of the highest standards, including a private beach, indoor and outdoor pool, as well as a state-of-the-art gym. Embracing the different cultures, the hotel will allow guests to choose from modern British cuisine at the Great British Restaurant (GBR), traditional fish and chips on the promenade, the Asian restaurant or DUKES Bar for signature cocktails. The hotel will also be home to a Champagne Lounge for traditional afternoon tea, and the al fresco Cigar and Coffee Lounge.
