The Al Osaimi Group, a leading Kuwait-based developer, has appointed internationally acclaimed interior design firm, Wilson Associates - Singapore, to handle the interior design of its AED 1.5 billion luxury resort, spa and residence project located at the Crescent of The Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.

The developer has allocated a budget of AED 400 million for the furniture, fixture and equipment of its maiden offering in the UAE. With initial design work set to commence within the first quarter of 2008, Wilson Associates is set to create a custom interior for the project in line with the Moroccan and Indian-based architectural themes adopted for the five-star family resort and seven-star luxury hotel respectively. The firm has allocated various teams to design and execute the different phases of design from initial concept to project completion.

Wilson's design professionals comprise registered architects, accredited interior designers, renderers, and draftsmen. Wilson Associates is a 23-time winner of the prestigious American Hotel and Motel Association's "Gold Key Award" for Excellence in hospitality design.

"As the foundation of our inaugural project in the UAE sets new standards in the construction of luxurious hospitality and residential developments, we recognise the importance of our partnerships with the most respected firms in the industry as the driving force behind the impressive pace at which the project has been progressing so far. Wilson Associates has proposed to us an impressive interior design for the resort and hotel facilities, which has truly captured the essence of both Indian and Moroccan cultures while encapsulating the aura of total relaxation and comfort," said Abdul Rahman Al Osaimi, Chairman of Al Osaimi Group.

Founded in 1975, Wilson Associates has built a strong reputation for its highly specialised interior architectural designs, ranging from award-winning hotels such as the impressive Park Hyatt Dubai to themed resorts and casinos like the Palace of the Lost City, South Africa and the Atlantis in Dubai. At present, the firm has designed and installed more than one million guestrooms in hundreds of hotels worldwide through the expertise of its 350 talented and multi-cultural staff. The firm offers a full range of interior architectural design services, from initial space planning and design to construction documents and construction administration. Utilising the company's wide range of global resources for its international clientele, Wilson Associates maintains offices in Dallas, New York, Los Angeles, Singapore, Johannesburg and Shanghai.

"Our broad experience in luxury hospitality design has been responsible for our extensive reach in the international real estate and construction industry. Maintaining significant partnerships with high profile developers such as the Al Osaimi Group has been one of the determining factors of the success we currently enjoy within this highly competitive market. We are confident that our contribution in integrating such thematic and cultural designs to this wonderful development will exceed the expectations of investors and end-users alike. We are very excited to be involved in The Palm Jumeirah project," said Bernard Himel, Managing Director, Wilson Associates - Singapore.

The luxury resort project, which is being built on approximately 100 million square feet of prime land at the crescent of The Palm Jumeirah, comprises a seven-star luxury hotel, a five-star family resort and an upscale residential complex with a total of 180 freehold townhouses and penthouses. Both the hotel and resort will offer luxurious and cutting-edge guestrooms and suites, distinctive dining experiences, private chalets, ballroom and meeting facilities with the latest technological advancements and themed landscaping. In addition, the hotel will also house Dusit's renowned Deverana Spa, which will offer an authentic Thai-inspired rejuvenation experience exclusive to guests at the hotel.
