Jumeirah Beach Hotel reopens after five-month refurbishment

It has a new look inspired by sea, sand and nature

Jumeirah Beach Hotel is reopening this weekend (Friday October 19) after a five-month refurbishment, and it's looking fabulous.

It shut back in May for a "significant makeover" covering guest bedrooms and suites as well as public areas and restaurants.

But now the popular family-friendly hotel is returning with a "tasteful yet bold" new look inspired by sea, sand and nature following its 20th anniversary in 2017.

It's all decked out in a contemporary style, with white gold and blue accents throughout.

The lobby atrium, with its stunning views of the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, has been made lighter and airier and is inspired by silhouettes of clouds receding into the water and rock formations.


There are also three art installations hanging above the lobby, which according to Jumeirah recreate the "movements of underwater creatures, the glistening of light on water and the glow of the sun".

All the guest rooms and suites offer views of the Burj Al Arab and have been fitted out with HYPNOS beds for a restful night's sleep.

Meanwhile, the hotel's restaurants have been revamped, with favourites including D&A, La Parilla and Uptown Bar all getting new looks.

Family dining hub Kitchen Connection offers nine interactive cooking stations for breakfast, lunch and dinner, while Palm Court has become Pearl Lounge, serving gourmet sandwiches, tartines and a pearl-inspired afternoon tea.

And that's not all, because the hotel's main family pool has had its swim-up bar expanded, while guests will still enjoy unlimited access to Wild Wadi Waterpark.

Jumeirah Group chief executive Jose Silva said: “In 1997 Jumeirah Beach Hotel was Dubai’s pioneer in luxury beach hotels and has been the canvas on which 20 years of memories have been made.

“For our loyal returning international guests - many of whom see members of the hotel’s team as friends - and our local community, Jumeirah Beach Hotel is their most cherished holiday and staycation destination, largely in part to the legacy of coastal nostalgia awoken when they step back through the doors of the hotel.”
Opens Fri Oct 19. Rooms from Dhs1,800. Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Umm Suqeim, jumeirah.com (04 432 3232).
