Banyan Tree Dubai Opens on Bluewaters Dubai to Offer Island Retreat Living in Group’s Dubai Debut 

UAE welcomes a modern beach sanctuary for the senses from Asia’s luxury hospitality leader 

Banyan Tree, one of the world’s leading hospitality brands, was pleased to announce the opening of its first property in Dubai. Opened on the UAE’s 52nd Union Day 2 December 2023, with a full suite of dining and recreational facilities, Banyan Tree Dubai fronts the shoreline of Bluewaters Dubai – a vibrant lifestyle destination by Dubai Holding offering a mix of residential, retail, hospitality and entertainment options. 

Modern and streamlined in concept, the property is imbued with a strong sense of place, fitting in seamlessly among the buildings of the gleaming Dubai Marina in the background. The star attraction occupies a 500-metre stretch of pristine, private beach boasting uninterrupted views of the Arabian Gulf and the iconic Ain Dubai observation wheel, as well as three temperature-controlled swimming pools. 

“We are delighted to be making our Dubai debut on UAE National Day with such esteemed partners as Ennismore and Dubai Holding. Thanks to its central location, Banyan Tree Dubai will appeal to both leisure and business travellers, as well as wedding couples looking for iconic backdrops for their nuptials and honeymoons. We eagerly anticipate welcoming travellers and residents to Banyan Tree Dubai, where the pinnacle of Arabian hospitality meets the distinguished luxury of Asia,” said Peter Hechler, Senior Vice President, Head – Regional Operations (Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa) of Banyan Tree Group.

Banyan Tree Dubai’s 178 rooms have been rejuvenated by BLINK Design, introducing a touch of soft minimalism. Ranging in size from 54 sqm to 315 sqm, the resort’s accommodations are characterised by warm, organic feel and handcrafted textures that are instantly welcoming and liveable. 

Across all room categories, guests will find sophisticated luxury accented by local touches, natural light-filled living spaces with floor-to-ceiling windows, cosy balconies with panoramic ocean views, plush beds, and Banyan Tree amenities in marble-clad bathrooms.
