The much-anticipated Rixos Premium Dubai at JBR is throwing open its doors this weekend (Saturday June 24).
Rescheduled from an opening date of last month, the hotel is now ready for business and is sure to attract residents around the city, as well as from outside Dubai, thanks to its exciting new restaurants and bars.
The brand-new hotel, located at the site of the old Oasis Beach Hotel on The Walk, JBR (demolished back in 2008), will house eight restaurants and bars, including a huge new Lock, Stock & Barrel (of which the Barsha Heights branch this year won Best Bar Food at our Restaurant Awards and Bar of the Year at our Music & Nightlife Awards), and a second Dubai outlet of the popular Black Tap, famous for its burgers, shakes and craft hops.
Trendy US steakhouse STK will be located at the JBR hotel, as well as a nightclub called Inner City Zoo.
For those looking for fine-dining, Italian restaurant Luigia Ristorante will be an ideal choice, while there will be more casual cuisine at all-day dining spot Turquoise. Other outlets include Azure Beach, Riviera Beach Grill and Crystal Lobby Lounge.
Visitors can head to Turquoise and Crystal Lobby Lounge from Saturday June 24, with the other dining spots due to open in September.
If you’re after some relaxation, the new spa should also be on your must list. Rixos is famous for its Turkish hammam, and there will be a luxurious one to try out at the new Natureland Spa.
For a more active stay, there’s a state-of-the-art gym boasting views out to sea from floor-to-ceiling windows.
Boasting 414 rooms and suites, the 35-storey hotel has a private beach area, ten private meeting rooms and the Diamond Ballroom, which can cater for up to 1,000 guests.
“This is an excellent time to expand Rixos Hotels’ portfolio in Dubai as the market continues to experience radical growth while establishing itself further as one of the world’s premier leisure and business destinations”, said Fettah Tamince, founder and chairman of Rixos Hotels.
“With an influx of attractions and multi-national corporations opening in the region, Rixos Premium Dubai’s sought-after location and unparalleled amenities will position the property as a prominent landmark in Dubai.”
A new Rixos is set to open in Abu Dhabi next year, too.
