Palm Jebel Ali was brought back to life 21 years after it was first talked about and 15 years after it was put on hold because of the 2008 financial crisis. Palm Jebel Ali will be back and bigger than ever. It will be twice as big as Palm Jumeirah and have even more hotels and beach building space that will be hard to beat.
The two islands are Nakheel projects, and hospitality and tourism leaders from all over the emirate, who have all welcomed the return of an icon, say they will need to work together to make Dubai more well-known around the world. Palm Jumeirah is known for its high-end resorts, beaches, and famous landmarks. Palm Jebel Ali, on the other hand, can give tourists a different experience. The two islands can work well together because they have different things to do and offer something for everyone. This means that Dubai can serve a wider group of tourists and encourage them to stay longer and come back.
It has been said that 30% of the new project will run on renewable energy, which shows how serious the country is about being green. Golbarg says that the island will stand out in Dubai because of its approach to sustainability.
The head of Minor Hotels is a big fan of running hotels in a way that is good for the environment. The Anantara on Palm Jumeirah says that it is just as environmentally friendly as the best hotels in Singapore. The resort has a 62 percent trash diversion rate, which is about the same as what is seen in Asian markets. The project gives us a chance to use sustainable planning and building methods, which will make the island more eco-friendly overall. Throughout the development, there is a focus on making green spaces and pushing sustainable projects. This is in line with Dubai’s commitment to a sustainable future.
Palm Jebel Ali will be a model for how modern cities should be planned. It will have mixed-use neighborhoods that people can walk through, smart city technologies and sustainable practices, and a variety of ways for residents, tourists, and communities to get around. This will make Palm Jebel Ali a model for waterfront life around the world and help change the look of Dubai’s landscape.
Golbarg said that the super-island will do more for Dubai than just add buildings. The opening of Al Maktoum Airport is in line with the goal for 2033, making it easier for tourists to get to and from Dubai. Better transportation links can make it easier for people to get between the two islands. This will improve the general guest experience and make it easier for people to visit more than one place.
Jan Hanak, MD of Radisson Hotel Group for the UAE, Bahrain, Oman, and Qatar, agreed that the two islands will work together. Palm Jumeirah has done a lot to put Dubai on the map. It is now one of the most famous tourist attractions in the world and a sign of how smart Dubai’s developers are. He said that Palm Jebel Ali can do the same thing. Hanak said, “The city’s hospitality scene is changing quickly and the opening of Palm Jebel Ali shows that the city is dedicated to giving people unique experiences. As Dubai moves up the world stage, it’s an exciting time for both people who live there and people who visit. This famous building sets a standard for the rest of the world and shows how Dubai is always trying to go above and beyond.
Simon Leigh, who is the general manager of Premier Inn Middle East, was amazed by both Palm Jumeirah and Jebel Ali. He told Hotelier Middle East, “It’s been just under two years since I moved to Dubai to run Premier Inn Middle East, and the city’s creativity, innovation, and forward-thinking attitude continue to amaze and inspire me.”
Dubai’s hospitality and tourism offerings are already the best in the world, and the reopening of Palm Jebel Ali, with its 80 hotels, will strengthen the emirate’s position as a world-class place to visit, trade, live, and play. Premier Inn is still growing in the UAE and other parts of the region, and we’re proud to be a part of Dubai’s constantly growing hotel industry.
Golbarg says that Palm Jebel Ali might offer different choices than Palm Jumeirah, but Faisal Durrani, Partner and Head of Middle East Research at Knight Frank, thinks that the site will still attract the rich and famous.
He said, “The return of Palm Jebel Ali is definitely good news for the market, especially considering how hard it is to find beachfront property and how much people want to live the “Dubai life,” especially wealthy people from other countries. Tourism and hospitality are important parts of the economy, so having more resorts will give travelers from all over the world even more options. This is important if the state wants people to keep coming back.
