Project Name: Sofitel Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa
Location: Dubai
Designer: Mirk Group

The Sofitel Palm Dubai has been modelled on a French Polynesian village, fresh with green foliage, cabana-style fittings, and sparkling water features overflowed with the Polynesian design and motifs on every detail. Intricate details of Koru, Geco, Tiki, Butterfly and Tiare flowers could be spotted on doors, walls and floors; all of which symbolise peace, freedom, energy and connection, life and new beginnings.

The art of organic architecture called eco-art, or greener architecture consisting of a variety of plants trailing gently up the organic wallpaper. Vertical gardens bring life, nature and colour to the environment. The vertical garden takes just few months to flourish, but the final results can last for up to three decades. Modern interpretation and translation of culture has been achieved through lighting and the reed ceiling finishes. Breathe natural island chic in refined interiors flowing with turquoise, fuchsia and green fabrics, a living wall, and colourful flowers. Serene, low-rise buildings and villas evoke Polynesian traditions and the sea, which laps a long, sandy private beach. A space can be a simple transition, a passage to a paradise just beyond.

The Lobby carries you through to the resort outside. The Lobby ceiling is designed as a Cabana with natural wood to reinforce the experience. While enjoying this pathway to paradise, simple and pure water features and vertical walls of floral plantings surround you on the two sides of the Lobby, immersing you in a lush green and vibrant environment found in traditional Polynesian Villages. A thrilling voyage through world cuisine awaits you in eight distinct restaurants in Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah – from a French open kitchen to all-day dining to seafood and snacks on the beach. Airy terraces allow you to dine under the Dubai sun or stars.
