Luxury hotel group Rixos Hotels has announced the launch of Rixos Residences Palm Jumeirah, a combined hotel and residence project in Dubai.

Located in the most prestigious part of Palm Island, the property will open to the public in December 2011.

The hotel section will boast 204 rooms, as well as gardens and a stunning beach promenade area. A contemporary style will be combined with typical Middle Eastern architectural features such as wide public areas and internal courtyards and terraces.

The residence section will consist of 112 flats, offering various options such as 2-3 bedroom residences as well as 4-5 bedroom detached villas with gardens. The seventh floor will include roof gardens that encircle the buildings.

The project marks the arrival of Rixos Hotels in the Middle East. Mr. Fettah Tamince, Chairman of Rixos Hotels, said: “Middle Eastern markets have always presented an invaluable investment opportunity for developing countries like Turkey and as a major hotel brand, we concentrate on key hotel and residence projects.

“We are thrilled to seal our presence in the region concurrently with our 10th year anniversary with an exclusive 5-star project such as the Rixos Residences Palm Jumeirah Dubai.”

Based in Antalya, Turkey, Rixos Hotels currently owns and operates 8 premium resorts and villas and 5 city hotels in countries as diverse as Turkey, Croatia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Libya and now Dubai.
