Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates is celebrating the 120th anniversary of Kempinski Hotels with a host of special offers for guests of the hotel and local UAE residents.
Celebrations will kick off on 8 April with a lighting ceremony performed by General Manager Slim Zaiane in the lobby lounge, which will be replicated by General Managers in Kempinski’s 80 hotels across the world.
Guests will be able to listen to stories of Kempinski’s unique European heritage and learn of key milestones in the company’s journey, from its foundation by restaurateur Berthold Kempinski in 1897 to the opening of the first hotel, Kempinski Hotel Bristol Berlin in 1952 by his grandson, Dr. Friedrich Unger.
The lighting ceremony will become a daily ritual, used to mark the 120th anniversary over the coming year.
In keeping with the celebration spirit, Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates will also recognise the birth of the brand throughout April with anniversary menus available in its restaurants priced at AED120 per person, either for three courses or for special sharing menus.
Savour the best from Levantine restaurant Olea, Spanish eatery Salero Tapas and Bodega, European café Aspen by Kempinski and Asian fusion lounge, Noir, at these special prices until 30 April.
With the Culinary Arts such an important part of Kempinski’s heritage, chefs from Kempinski Hotels worldwide are hard at work creating birthday cakes for the hotel. The best 12 creations will be sold at the Aspen by Kempinski Deli in a 120th anniversary commemorative box.
Guests will enjoy special treats surrounding the 120-year anniversary theme, such as a turndown service with a ‘Make a Wish’ envelope that enables them to choose from three special gifts.
There will also be a daily raffle during April with various themed prizes on offer, from AED120 to spend at any of the restaurants to late-check-out extensions of 120 minutes.
Slim Zaiane, General Manager of Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates, commented: “We are privileged to be part of a hotel company
with such a long, proud history and look forward to celebrating 120 years of unique European hospitality with our valued guests in Dubai.”
