A new five-star hotel and residences on Palm Jumeirah which brought British luxury to Dubai has launched a floor exclusively dedicated to female guests.
Dukes Dubai has debuted its Duchess Floor, which features 20 rooms on its third floor. With private lift access, the floor features women’s only public spaces, as well as discreet and private access to rooms, a statement said.
The entire floor is adorned with Liberty fabrics, providing elegant touches through silks, textiles and drapes in each ocean view room, while on the third floor, the Champagne and Tea Lounge will offer a Duchess breakfast exclusively for the hotel’s female guests, it added.
The Duchess initiative was borne out of Dukes Collection managing director Debrah Dhugga’s own business travel experience and will be showcased at this year’s Arabian Travel Market, taking place in Dubai later this month.
Dhugga said: “As somebody who travels regularly either for business or for leisure with friends and female relatives, I could clearly see a gap in the market for a women’s only area in a luxury hotel.”
Owned and operated by Seven Tides, Dukes Dubai is the first international property for the Dukes Collection brand.
The 279-room hotel and 227-hotel apartment complex opened to the public at the end of March on the main trunk of Palm Jumeirah.
