January 2017

Skai has completed its flagship Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai hotel and residences project and will officially open its doors in March.

The Dh4.3-billion ($1.17 billion) development was awarded its building permit and completion certificate (BCC) from Trakhees on November 14, more than two weeks ahead of schedule, said the UAE developer.

Featuring a striking amphitheatre design, the Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai comprises 477 spacious rooms and suites and 221 signature Viceroy Residences as well as 10 restaurants and nightlife settings, spa, beach, pool, “Kids Only” club and health and wellness areas.

The handover of 221 signature Viceroy Residences to owners has also begun.

Kabir Mulchandani, Group CEO, commented: “The completion of our flagship project, Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai, ahead of schedule is testament to Skai’s commitment and confidence in Dubai’s growing hospitality sector.”

“Over the last two years, the Skai team and our partners, China State Construction Engineering Corporation (Middle East), have been on site overseeing more than 4,000 staff to ensure its completion,” he stated.

Skai said construction work is also on track at its second hospitality and residential project, the Viceroy Dubai Jumeirah Village. 

The luxury five-star tower, which is set to commence operation in 2018, is currently 32 per cent complete.

The Dh1.28-billion ($348.4 million) tower will feature 247 hotel rooms and suites as well as 221 one and two-bedroom hotel apartments and 33 four-bedroom hotel apartments all with private pools.

The Viceroy Dubai Jumeirah Village is strategically located in close proximity to three of Dubai’s arterial roads (Al Khail Road, Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road and Hessa Street) and a short drive from Dubai’s new Al Maktoum International Airport and Expo 2020 site.
