Banyan Tree Dubai to open on Bluewaters Dubai

Previously Caesars Palace Dubai, the property was reflagged last month

Banyan Tree will open its first property in Dubai on the UAE’s 52nd Union Day, 2 December 2023, with a suite of dining and recreational facilities.

Peter Hechler, senior vice-president, head of regional operations (Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa) at Banyan Tree Group, said: "We are delighted to be making our Dubai debut on UAE National Day with such esteemed partners as Ennismore and Dubai Holding. Thanks to its central location, Banyan Tree Dubai will appeal to both leisure and business travellers, as well as wedding couples looking for iconic backdrops for their nuptials and honeymoons.” 

Banyan Tree Dubai's 178 rooms have been rejuvenated by Blink Design, introducing “soft minimalism”. Ranging in size from 54sq m to 315sq m, the rooms are characterised by a warm, organic feel and handcrafted textures.

Banyan Tree Dubai’s seven restaurants include Alizee, a French Mediterranean restaurant, Demon Duck by chef Alvin Leung and TakaHisa, which offers a Japanese fine-dining experience. 

Guests can also enjoy live music at Havana Social Club, rare teas at the Japanese Tea Lounge Tocha and Mediterranean tapas at The Shack. 


In addition to three outdoor pools, there is a fitness centre, beauty salon and a Banyan Tree Spa offering personalised holistic treatments. 

As part of a long-term partnership between Accor and Banyan Tree Group signed in 2016, Banyan Tree Dubai will be co-operated by Banyan Tree Group and Ennismore, following a similar operational model applied in Banyan Tree Doha at La Cigale Mushaireb, Qatar and Banyan Tree AlUla, Saudi Arabia.
