The new Viceroy Palm Jumeirah hotel opened last month, with design and architecture led by Yabu Pushelberg and NAO Taniyama Associates.
The building is encased in glass, with the theme of transparency running throughout the hotel interiors, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows which allows natural light into the indoor spaces.
Running through the heart of the hotel and towards the sea is a 60-metre statement pool surrounded by palm trees with a distinctly old Holywood glamour aesthetic, a nod to Viceroy’s LA roots.
The hotel’s restaurants are located in the central area, featuring hand-painted tiles lining the walls at The Delisserie as well as gently curving arches that make up Quattro Passi. Other restaurants such as BLVD On One features warm wooden interiors while Maiden Shanghai’s decor is inspired by 1920s art deco.
Adjacent to the pool is is the 1,675m2 spa featuring an immersive entryway complete with a sequence of arches, with walls adorned with hand painted artwork, created exclusively for the hotel.
Italian marble is featured predominantly throughout the interiors, from the floor to the double height ceiling hammam. Outside, 14 white standalone treatment ‘cubes’ are scattered among palm trees, each with its own distinct identity.
Perforated triangles allow sunlight and fresh air to filter through, creating a sense of connection to the natural elements surrounding the environment.
The hotel interiors feature clean lines and natural materials with rooms decorating in neutral colours alongside Viceroy’s signature teal, with brushed bronze finishes adding a warm glow.
Light and dark woods contrast with layers of marble, creating a sense of balance while recurring honeycomb patterns run throughout the hotel.
