THE Al Habtoor Group has appointed Dar to design its Dh750 million ($204 million) resort on Jumeirah Palm.

The new Resort, to be managed by Habtoor Hospitality, will be located on the crescent, covering a total land area of approximately 50,000sqm.
The resort is planned to be a mix of Thai and Balinese themes, in a tropical paradise type setting with low rise buildings. It will feature 300 rooms and suites, including two Presidential suites, two honeymoon suites and 38 executive suites. 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. 
Six restaurants, an all-day coffee shop, cocktail lounge, pool bar and outdoor garden café complete the F&B offering. Conference and banquet facilities include a ballroom for up to 1,000 persons, five meeting rooms and business centre.
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 three 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.
