Dubai Holding and Accor Join Forces for a Landmark Project on Bluewaters

Caesar Palace to be Banyan Tree Dubai

Dubai Holding, a global investment holding company, is collaborating with Accor, a world-leading hospitality group, to introduce a unique luxury lifestyle experience in Dubai.

The first step in this partnership is the unveiling of Banyan Tree Dubai, set to open in November 2023 on Bluewaters.

This new resort will replace the Caesars Palace Dubai and, after a series of enhancements, will feature 179 rooms, including a luxurious four-bedroom villa. Wellness enthusiasts can look forward to the Banyan Tree Spa, which promises a holistic experience with its mini rainforests, hydrotherapy pools, and more.



Banyan Tree Dubai is not just a resort; it's also a residential haven with 96 private residences. These homes, ranging from one to four bedrooms, promise luxury living with dedicated amenities and access to the hotel's facilities.

The resort's culinary offerings, a collaboration between Ennismore’s Carte Blanched and Banyan Tree Group, will provide guests with diverse dining experiences across five restaurants and bars. Each restaurant will offer a unique ambiance, ensuring guests have a variety of dining experiences to choose from.



Banyan Tree Dubai is first of many announcements marking the beginning of a larger hotel and brand development partnership between Accor and Dubai Holding, with multiple projects in the pipeline. The agreement was signed by Sébastien Bazin, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Accor, with Amit Kaushal, Group Chief Executive Officer of Dubai Holding earlier today.

Sébastien Bazin, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Accor, said: “We are thrilled to be at the beginning of a promising development partnership between Accor and Dubai Holding, and the announcement of the opening of a stunning Banyan Tree Dubai on Bluewaters is the first of many projects involving our brands in the pipeline to further develop and grow our presence in Dubai and globally.”

Amit Kaushal, Group Chief Executive Officer, Dubai Holding, said: “Bluewaters has always been a destination for major projects that redefine luxury and cement Dubai as a global beacon of the tourism industry. Our collaboration with market leaders like Accor, Ennismore and Banyan Tree Group marks an important milestone in our ongoing journey of elevating the rich hospitality landscape in Dubai.”

Dubai Holding has been at the forefront of delivering ultimate hospitality and entertainment experiences in Dubai and around the world through the Group’s leading companies that own and manage an extensive portfolio of iconic hospitality assets, a diverse collection of unique F&B concepts and landmark leisure attractions.
