Time Out Says

The W chain is world-famous for its on-trend hotels, cool guests and exciting design. And the Dubai outpost is no different. Set on the West Crescent of Palm Jumeirah, right next door to the Emerald Palace Kempinski Dubai, the massive hotel opened in February
2019 and is a W Escape – billed as “W brand’s playful spin on the traditional resort experience”.

There are 350 rooms and décor is vibrant and modern. Alongside several swimming pools, there’s also Wet Deck, which hosts live DJs and brunches.

Dining-wise you’re spoilt for choice. Torno Subito comes from Massimo Bottura – the chef behind Osteria Francescana, the world-famous three-Michelin-starred restaurant in Modena.

Meanwhile Akira Back, pro-snowboarder turned chef, brings a mix of Japanese and Korean cuisine to his eponymous spot, which has a super terrace boasting mesmerising views of Dubai Marina. For lower-key meals there’s LIV, a restaurant designed using upcycled materials.

And if you want to party, it’s time to head to SoBe (short for South Beach), an adults-only rooftop lounge.

In need for relaxation? AWAY Spa has ten treatment rooms, a steam room, sauna, experiential showers, a hammam and a couples’ suite.

There’s also a beauty bar and gym, so no stone is left unturned if you’re after a weekend of pampering and partying.
