DUBAI- Palm Jumeirah, the architectural wonder and flagship master development from Nakheel, has been named World’s Leading Tourism Development Project at the 2021 World Travel Awards, with three of the island’s newest attractions and destinations also being crowned at this year’s event.

The View at The Palm, Nakheel’s stunning, 360-degree observation deck which opened at the top of The Palm Tower earlier this year, took the title of Middle East’s Leading New Tourist Attraction.

Palm West Beach, Nakheel’s unique seafront dining and leisure spot, which opened in 2020, won the award for Dubai’s Leading Beach Destination The St. Regis The Palm, Dubai – another key attraction within The Palm Tower – took the title of World’s Leading New Hotel Omar Khoory, Chief Assets Officer at Nakheel, said: "Nakheel continues to create and deliver groundbreaking destinations for UAE residents and tourists, and in turn contribute positively to Dubai’s tourism and leisure sectors.

We are humbled that The Palm Jumeirah – and key destinations on the island that were all successfully opened despite the challenges of the pandemic – have been recognised at The World Travel Awards. These prestigious accolades represent more milestones for Dubai’s tourism sector and are even more reason to celebrate the ever-growing wonder of Palm Jumeirah."
