Sofitel Palm Dubai celebrates fifth anniversary

The Sofitel Palm Dubai is celebrating its fifth anniversary this month. The five-star hotel has received more than 1.5 million guests since it began operations in 2013.

The luxury hotel sits on the famous Palm Jumeirah island in Dubai, and is famous for its relaxed, Polynesian theme. The property has a strong eco-friendly policy and has been awarded Green Globe certification for its environmental initiatives and practices.

Christophe Schnyder, the General Manager of Sofitel Palm Dubai, stated: 

“We are proud to celebrate five years of guests’ best experiences, which is a result of our dedicated Ambassadors who tirelessly strive to provide memorable stays to our visitors from around the world.” 

“We are grateful to every Ambassador who has contributed to our success story, and our loyal guests for whom Sofitel The Palm, is considered a home away from home.”

According to the hotel’s figures, the guests over the last five years have originated from 215 countries worldwide. The hotel’s 14 dining venues and lounges have served over 4.5 million guests.

Over the last five years, the hotel has implemented a series of green and sustainable initiatives and programmes as part of its daily operations. An efficient recycling programme is in place with AccorHotel’s Planet 21. So far, 450 tonnes of paper and cardboard, 115 tonnes of plastic, and 145 tonnes of glass bottles have been recycled. This alone has generated an equivalent saving or 10,500 trees and more than 2.5 million kwh of energy. The hotel has also donated 480kg of used soap to developing countries through the Soap for Hope Programme.

The hotel’s roof measures almost 7,000 square meters and is covered with cape reed thatching, which is a durable, waterproof and UV-proof natural fibre that allows trapped water and heat to escape. The roof also has 232 solar panels which produce 2,200 kW of heating output per day and generates power for the 50 percent of the hotel’s hot water.

The upscale resort sits on a long 500-metre private beach on Palm Jumeirah’s East Crescent. The property offers elegant, luxurious accommodation and facilities under its relaxed Polynesian vibe theme. The five-star resort has 361 spacious guest rooms and suites with private balconies and sea or city views. The hotel boasts upscale Beach Villas with a rooftop terrace and pool offering views overlooking the sparkling Persian Gulf.

Luxury facilities at the beachfront hotel include three a la carte restaurants with gourmet international cuisine, and four stylish bars and lounges with premium drinks. The hotel spa spans 2,500 square metres of space and has 28 treatment rooms, a steam room and a sauna. There are also two kids’ clubs with fun supervised activities, as well as tennis courts, a modern fitness centre, and fun activities including pedal boats, kayaking, and boat hire.
