Kempinski Floating Palace features a floating hotel surrounded by 48 luxury mobile villas.

El Bahrawy Group, a leading marine construction group in the UAE and Middle East, has unveiled ‘Neptune’ the first floating and mobile villa as part of the Kempinski Floating Palace resort project.

Initiated three years ago, the Kempinski Floating Palace project features a floating hotel surrounded by 48 luxury mobile villas, with an estimated market value of AED1.6 billion ($435 million) upon its completion.

Anchored in the Dubai Palm Marina, eight of the 48 Neptune villas available in two-, three-, and four-bedroom configurations, are currently in the final stages of completion. 

The Neptune villa features a two-storey layout plus a rooftop, collectively spanning 6,300 sq ft per level. The ground floor accommodates a living room, an open-concept dining area, a kitchen, a guest restroom, a crew chamber, a service room, a cockpit, an outdoor seating space, and a platform designed for storing and launching jet skis.

The upper level is composed of three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The rooftop is embellished with a private infinity swimming pool encircled by glass walls, alongside outdoor seating, a designated barbecue area, an external driving control station, and a display screen.

The Neptune villa has the capability to cruise at a speed of 6 to 8 knots per hour, thanks to its eco-friendly engines that also have the option of operating on electric power.  The engines not only power the villa but also have the capacity for waste recycling and seawater desalination.
