The UAE's hotels are gradually reopening in the wake of restrictions put in place to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

One of Dubai's most popular hotels for international guests and staycations, W Dubai – The Palm, is yet to reopen. However, today (Wednesday, June 24), it announced its mid-summer reopening date as Thursday, July 30.

In an Instagram post, the luxury hotel announced its grand reopening.

"Get ready to Hit Escape," the post was captioned. "The hottest destination on the Palm is reopening on July 30".

The post comes a week after a reopening date was teased on Instagram on Wednesday, June 17.

To check into the hotel on opening night, room rates start at Dh600, as part of a Welcome Back deal.

The hotel is home to a number of popular bars and restaurants, including chef Massimo Bottura's modern Italian restaurant Torno Subito; Japanese and Korean fine dining spot Akira Back; all-day dining restaurant Liv; rooftop bar SoBe and pool bar Wet Deck.

Aside from Liv, it has not been confirmed that all of the bars and restaurants will open at the same time as the hotel. Upon booking, there is a disclaimer that "some hotel facilities or services may not be available to guests for a period of time".

W Dubai – The Palm is not the only hotel in Dubai currently still closed. Some of the most famous hotels in the city remain shuttered, including Burj Al Arab, Armani Hotel Dubai, Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa and Park Hyatt Dubai.
