There's another St Regis hotel being added to the Dubai city map, and it's the most upscale of them all.
Nestled into The Palm Tower, a soaring 52 storey development on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah island, will be the St Regis Dubai The Palm resort and its 289 guest rooms and suites.
The tower will be crowned by one of the world's highest infinity pools, bordering all four sides of the building for a sweeping 360 degree view of the Palm Jumeirah, Arabian Gulf and Dubai skyline.
When it opens in 2018 the St Regis Dubai The Palm will provide easy access to Palm Jumeirah's 1.1 million square feet green oasis with its 3.2km looped running track plus The Palm Monorail, which delivers guests to the Dubai Tram and Dubai Metro.
The St Regis Dubai The Palm resort will join the newly-opened St Regis Dubai plus five-star St Regis siblings in Abu Dhabi and Doha, while sister Starwood brand W Dubai The Palm will open in 2017.
