Habtoor names DAR to design Jumeirah Palm resort
Dubai: Al Habtoor Group has appointed DAR to design the Dh750 million resort on Jumeirah Palm.
The new resort, which will be managed by Habtoor Hospitality will be located on Plot No 34 on the crescent and total land area is about 50,000 square metres.
The theme of the resort is planned to be a mix of Thai and Balinese in a tropical paradise type setting with low-rise buildings.
The rooms and suites will be spread over the whole land as thatched roof bungalows, some with private swimming pools and gardens, and all with natural tropical plant barriers giving the impression of living in a tropical forest with plants specially imported.
We have a team of specialists studying all the different plants available to ensure they can survive and thrive in Dubai environment.
Walking over the landscape, guests will cross a lot of bridges and come across many ponds, waterfalls and streams.
There will be public pools conveniently located in two areas on the land for guests to have easy access.
The spa will have a variety of treatments rooms, including outdoor where guests can relax in the surrounding landscape during the nice weather.
Other leisure facilities include 3 tennis courts, lap and leisure swimming pools and all the typical recreation facilities, including special play rooms and games facilities for children and even a kid's swimming pool.
The resort will feature 300 rooms including 2 Presidential Suites, 2 Honeymoon Suites and 38 Executive Suites.

#APPROVED, AL HABTOOR RESORT, ?F, ?m (Palm Jumeirah)
Al Habtoor to begin twin Dubai hotel developments
By Shakir Husain, Staff Reporter
Dubai: UAE-based Al Habtoor group is boosting its hotel presence in Dubai with two new properties and hopes to build a hotel in Abu Dhabi to cater to the capital's growing tourism market.
The company is waiting for the green light from the Palm Jumeirah Island's developer Nakheel to start work on its Dh750-million resort, Al Habtoor chief executive Mohammad Al Habtoor said.
It has also announced plans to build a 100-storey tower in Business Bay that will house a penthouse boutique hotel.
Details of the project are still being worked out and design work is expected to be completed in mid-2007.
"Our hotel room capacity will exceed 2,500 when the Business Bay project is completed," Al Habtoor said. The Al Habtoor Group owns and operates hotels through its subsidiary Habtoor Hospitality.
The company has developed three brands for three different markets. Habtoor Grand Hotels & Resorts are five-star plus properties, while The Metropolitan Palaces are five-star, and the Metropolitans are mid-range hotels.
The group will have 1,700 rooms after the 300-unit tropical-themed resort on the Palm is completed.
"We are working on the design. We are waiting for the Palm infrastructure to be completed," Al Habtoor said.
He said the company is pursuing plans with Abu Dhabi authorities to build a luxury hotel in the capital.
"We have already approached the government. As soon as we find land in an appropriate area, we will start a hotel in Abu Dhabi," he said, adding that the company will consider setting up hotels in other emirates in the future.
The group also has hotel businesses in Britain and Lebanon.
Al Habtoor said the company has so far invested Dh1.32 billion in its Beirut properties that include a luxury hotel and the Habtoorland theme park.
