SLS Residences The Palm Dubai opens in 2026 as Ennismore expands beyond hotels

Ennismore – known for its all-out lifestyle hotels – has announced its first solely residential project in Dubai. SLS Residences The Palm Dubai is coming in 2026, without hotel rooms.

The new-build SLS Residences The Palm Dubai will be perched on Palm Jumeirah’s West Crescent, putting it on the same road as the likes of W Dubai – The Palm, Th8 resort, and Jumeirah Zabeel Saray. The location will also give residents beachfront access.

SLS Residences The Palm facilities

The project will have 113 residences, starting with two-beds and moving up to three- and four-beds, along with penthouses. In terms of facilities, there’s a beach club, a clubhouse, an infinity pool and a gym.

There will also be dining outlets, a kids club and a “high-end game-entertainment room.”

Louis Abi Abboud, chief development officer & deputy head of Middle East, Africa and Turkey at Ennismore, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Roya Lifestyle Development LLC to bring Ennismore’s first-ever standalone branded residences development to the United Arab Emirates with SLS Residences The Palm Dubai.

“This project will be the first of its kind in The Palm Jumeirah, combining SLS’s theatrical experiential designs and unique culinary experiences, bringing an iconic luxury lifestyle brand to the market in a new way.”

The project is being developed by Roya Lifestyle Development. The CEO, Rami Hussein, said: “We are delighted to be entering the Dubai market with our first project, a branded residence and collaboration with SLS. We are looking forward to delivering a range of properties to the market with a key focus on high-quality finishings and world-class amenities. The SLS Residences The Palm will be one of the unique projects in Dubai and a catalyst for Roya’s legacy.”

Branded residences from Accor

In the wider Accor group, there are plans for branded residences within Raffles Jeddah in Saudi Arabia.

Whilst approximately 75 percent of Accor’s operating branded residential network resides in the luxury segment, premium brands such as  Mövenpick, Pullman, Swissôtel, as well as Ennismore’s Mondrian and Hyde brands, are gaining momentum. They now account for 49 percent of projects under development as Accor leverages its strong premium-tier brands to help development partners reach new buyers and market segments.

The group currently has eight open and pipeline standalone residences and, according to Accor, demand and potential for standalone residences are very high in key cities within the region, such as Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh, Jeddah, Doha and Cairo.
