The Palm Island Mermaids - Your new Fitness Activity to try when on holidays in Dubai

The Palm Island Mermaids - Your new Fitness Activity to try when on holidays in Dubai

The magic of Kempinski Hotel Palm Jumeirah, its grace, endless beach and sunlight gleaming on the sea... What better mythical creature to personify all this than the Mermaid? Are you familiar with Mermaiding? The new trendy sport on the shores of the Western world, both fun and athletic, which had yet to reach Dubai.

Come discover it on Palm Island every Friday starting on 1st of May, with the Palm Jumeirah’s holidays by the Sea.

To celebrate its ties with the sea, Kempinski Hotel & Residences Palm Jumeirah, which evokes European seaside resorts of yesteryear, will now be inviting you everyday to enjoy a sumptuous Vacation on the turquoise waters of the Arabian Gulf.

For even more amazement, the Management launched in Dubai an activity that is all the rage in the swimming pools of Paris, New York, London and Miami: Mermaiding. Fun, dreams and... Exercise for the abdominals guaranteed for women, children and even men!

Mermaids (and mermen) abound in European maritime legends, lighting up Hans Christian Andersen’s famous fairy tale and even turning Peter Pan’s head. What little girl has never dreamed of becoming Ariel, the Little Mermaid? What woman has never imagined herself lying in the sand with a shimmering fishtail, long tresses cascading over her shoulders while she poses for a photographer? Mermaiding enables you to don a mermaid’s tail so you can undulate in the turquoise waters of Dubai.

Mermaiding is also a sport on the cutting edge of fitness, excellent for firming thighs, buttocks and abdominal muscles, especially when practised daily. What children will enjoy most is the fun; for adults, exercise blends with play and enchantment. Mermaiding can be practised by children from age 3, men and women. Gentlemen: remember the impressive muscles of the sea god Triton, messenger of the Sea, son of Poseidon and Amphitrite! The Kempinski Hotel Palm Jumeirah has selected mermaid tails made of silicone and fabric specially designed for the establishment, shipped directly from Miami. For the ladies, some models were designed by Mertailor, the true haute-couture label for mermaid tails!

Mermaiding will make its entrance at the Friday Brunch by the Sea and will be available every day at the Little Palace, in both the sea and the swimming pool. Mermaiding can also add an unforgettable novel touch to all birthdays, weddings and professional events like incentives, shoots, cosmetics and bathing suit launches...

Poetic, romantic, fabulously modern and exclusive to Dubai, today’s MUST!
