Awarded by the owners’ association management company Strata Global, this contract is within the branded residences sector in the UAE, which the company has identified as a target growth area in 2021.
W Residences Dubai – The Palm comprises 104 serviced luxury apartments and offers a hotel-inspired concept. Every owner at W Residences Dubai – The Palm benefits from W’s world-renowned ‘Whatever/ Whenever’ service promise and has access to a 24-hour residential concierge, in-residence catering and a seamless maintenance service.
