Additional information
  • This is a 505,000 sq ft, eight-storey, luxury residential development.

  • The project was developed as a joint venture between Qatar's Al Mana Group, which holds a 51 percent stake, and Saudi's Al Sharq Investment, which holds 49 percent.

  • The W Dubai hotel is situated on the Palm's western crescent next to the W Residences which are also serviced by the W brand.

  • The hotel’s ground floor contains restaurants and fashion outlets, while a bar and restaurant on the top floor takes advantage of the dual Palm and Arabian Gulf views.

  • Outside, the W Hotel Palm Jumeirah has a spa, pool area, water features and its own private beach.

  • The W Residences consist of two adjacent buildings that form a zigzag shape. One building has views over the interior of the Palm and the other faces the Arabian Gulf, and together they contain 104 beachfront apartments.

  • The twin apartment buildings are divided into eight 'mansions', each of which contains two apartments per floor. There are two ultra-luxurious penthouses and three duplex penthouses on top of each building.

  • Each of the 'mansions' has its own dedicated lobby and elevator.

  • The two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom apartments range in size from 4,800 to 15,000 sq ft.

  • The apartments feature stunning floor-to-ceiling panoramic ocean and skyline views, large balconies and gardens. Some of the larger units have their own swimming pools.

  • The upper floor apartments are being sold as shell and core so that buyers can request interior designers of their choosing.

  • All residents have access to a private members' club, 'The 104', with restaurants, bars, lounges, a gym, spa treatment rooms and a cinema.

  • The W Residences are surrounded by a tropical landscaped garden with a 475-metre private, sandy beach. The beachfront promenade has cabanas and offers a range of water sports.

  • The residential component was previously named Alef Residences but has since been rebranded to the W Residences Dubai.
