The project is inspired by the vision of founder and owner of Nikki Beach Worldwide, Jack Penrod and is designed in collaboration with international architecture firm DSA Architects and Beirut-based interior designers Gatserelia Design.
The hotel comprises of 117 rooms and suites in addition to 15 villas as well as 61 lifestyle residence units ranging from one to four bedrooms and two penthouses.
Situated on a 4000m beachfront, the amenities include a spa, gym, Cafe Nikki, Satine Restaurant & Lounge, Key West as well as the world famous Nikki Beach Restaurant and Beach Club.
‘What truly sets up apart as a brand is the design of the property, with a seamless transition between inside and outside spaces,” said Daniele Vastolo, general manager of Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Dubai.
The design of the rooms, villas and common areas all feature the signature white theme of the Nikki Beach brand with key element’s of the region and local touches. All elements of the design are directly inspired by the sea and sky.
“Nikki Beach is all about keeping the look natural and simple,” added Jack Pernod, Nikki Beach founder. “There is nothing synthetic or over the top. It was the natural look combined with soft sophistication in all white fabrics and free-flowing white curtains that made the essence of our Nikki Beach design.
“Another important factor in designing Nikki Beach was to make sure we kept the good energy flowing through the space. It should always follow our vision of celebrating life, surrounded by natural and earthy elements,” he adds.
The lighting theme of the resort changes according to the mood of the specific spaces, creating a theatrical ambiance.
“This extends from the organic shapes of the lobby to the wooden cladding of the corridors and the restaurants such as Key West and Cafe Nikki,” said a release.
“Nature plays a big role in the resort’s design with the use of rough tree branches to pebbles and algae” it adds.
