Well it looks like without human intervention and dredging the island will fade back into the sea as fast as it was built!

regarding the dredging works happening in front of the hotel, the problem here isn't erosion but the fact that they built the hotels so close to the waterfront that there isn't any beach left. They are continuously expanding the land mass of the crescent in order to get more beach area.

You can check it out by yourself by using that old satellite imagery feature on Google Earth. It can be seen in front of the Sofitel Hotel for example.

That's not really good either! add to the the division and subdivision of crescent plots which cheapens it! I really hope PJA when developed by some miracle will be managed by someone else than Nakheel!!

Nakheel brings St. Regis branded Beach Club to Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah

Quote:



Master developer Nakheel today confirmed that it will introduce a St. Regis branded Beach Club to Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah, adding yet another exclusive, top-flight attraction to the world-famous island. This extends from the management agreement between Nakheel and Starwood Hotels & Resorts for The St Regis Dubai – The Palm, a new luxury hotel to be located in Nakheel’s 52-storey Palm Tower hotel and residential complex.

Part of Nakheel’s Palm West Beach complex, The St. Regis Beach Club will offer exclusive dining, leisure and fitness venues alongside mesmerising views of the Arabian Gulf. This includes modern, fusion dining concepts new to the UAE, an infinity edge pool stretching almost 100 metres along the seafront, and a state-of-the-art gymnasium. Guests of The St. Regis Dubai – The Palm will enjoy complimentary access to the beach club, while those living in The Palm Tower Residences will benefit from preferential membership deals.

Nakheel Chairman Ali Rashid Lootah said: “The St Regis Beach Club is a natural progression that further cements our relationship with Starwood Hotels & Resorts. This exclusive new facility will reinforce Palm Jumeirah’s position as the global location for luxury living and leisure by offering the unrivalled facilities that St. Regis guests across the world are accustomed to.”

Neil George, Senior Vice President, Acquisitions & Development, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Middle East and Africa, said: “We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with Nakheel to introduce a St. Regis branded beach club in this landmark destination. Managed by The St. Regis Dubai – The Palm, the beach club will offer guests an exceptional leisure experience combined with the brand’s bespoke hospitality.”

The St Regis Dubai - The Palm will offer 289 guest rooms and suites, occupying the first 18 floors of The Palm Tower, while the upper floors will comprise 504 luxury apartments. The hotel will feature two swimming pools, including the one of the world’s highest infinity pools, located on the 50th floor, 210 metres above ground, commanding 360 degree, panoramic views of Palm Jumeirah, Arabian Gulf and Dubai skyline.

The hotel will offer various dining experiences including a signature restaurant with sweeping city views on the 51st level, and an all-day restaurant. Guests will experience renowned hallmarks of the St. Regis brand, including the signature St. Regis Butler Service.

The Palm Tower, for which Nakheel awarded a construction contract for AED819 million in October last year, will be directly linked to Nakheel Mall, a new luxury retail and entertainment destination with 350 shops, restaurants and entertainment outlets. The tower will also feature a public rooftop viewing deck on the 52nd floor. It is due for completion in 2018.

The Palm Tower Residences – 504 furnished studios and one, two and three bedroom apartments with uninterrupted, panoramic island, water and skyline views – start at AED1.7 million. For more information, visit the Nakheel Sales Centre, Al Sufouh Road, Dubai; call +971 4 390 3333 or log on to www.nakheel.com

That's correct, at the very least it will block all of the Fairmont north residences beach. They also announced the first 4 star hotel to be built on the palm, Aloft. Most probably on one of the sudivided plots past the anantara resort

Starwood inks deal to open Aloft hotel on Palm Jumeirah

Quote:




Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc on Wednesday announced it has signed an agreement with Rashid Al Abbar to open a 192-room Aloft on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah.

Scheduled to open in 2017, Aloft Dubai, The Palm will be the brand’s first resort in the Middle East, complete with beach access, when it opens its doors as the first mid-market hotel brand on the island.

Aloft Dubai, The Palm will have 192 guest rooms, including 10 suites, and will offer guests access to a 500-metre stretch of beach, complete with sun beds and a gazebo.

The hotel will also feature SPG Keyless — that enables guests to use their smartphone or Apple watch as a room key.

The property will offer the brand’s signature W XYZSM Bar, re:fuelSM by Aloft, the ‘grab and go’ eatery open 24 hours a day, an all-day dining outlet and a speciality restaurant.

“We are delighted to work with Mr Rashid Al Abbar to debut our tech-forward Aloft experience to the Palm Jumeirah and bring the brand’s passion for live music, vibrant design and innovation to this exciting development,” said Michael Wale, president, Starwood Hotels & Hotels Europe, Africa and Middle East.

“The UAE remains our strongest growth market in the Middle East, and this deal reinforces the demand for mid-market hotel development in the region.”

Al Abbar added: “This is a very exciting and prestigious opportunity for us to work with Starwood who are leaders in the hospitality industry. We are confident that Aloft Dubai, The Palm will create a new level of experience for guests by providing an international, mid-level, resort style hotel in Palm Jumeirah, at attractive rates.”

Aloft made its debut in the Middle East in 2009 with Aloft Abu Dhabi and Starwood has plans to introduce seven Aloft properties across the UAE by 2019.

I'm certainly glad I don't live in Fairmont North any more, I can only imagine how angry the apartment owners there must be after having to wait so long for the beach in the first place. The years of construction of this thing aren't going to be much fun either.
