Jumeirah Al Naseem, the final chapter of the Madinat
Jumeirah, will open its doors on 1 December 2016.
The opening will also mark the
completion of Jumeirah Group’s transformation of two kilometres of
coastline into a major tourist destination. The process began in
1997 with the opening of Jumeirah Beach Hotel and continued with
the iconic Burj Al Arab Jumeirah and Madinat Jumeirah.
“In being given
the challenge of writing the final chapter in the story of Madinat
Jumeirah, we didn’t just want to create a 430-room beachfront
hotel – we wanted to bring a wave of vibrancy that matches the
energy of Dubai,” said Richard Alexander, General Manager, Jumeirah Al Naseem. “We have been given a wonderful
opportunity to marry a spectacular beach front location with a
contemporary architectural twist on our sister properties and Jumeirah’s legendary service, and to showcase the best that this
dynamic, energetic and visionary city has to offer.”
The interior decor of the 430 rooms is inspired by sea
breeze, sand dunes, Dubai’s pearl diving heritage and Bedouin
traditions. The large open plan bathrooms have large sliding doors
for privacy and spacious walk in showers inspired by Arabic hammams.
The balconies and extended terraces offer views
of the sea, the resort's landscaped gardens and swimming pools. Rooms with extended terraces
enable guests to relax outside and in the summer months the doors
can be closed to create an extended living space.

• A secluded adult
only pool surrounded by rooms with direct pool access;

mini-social hub within the hotel’s grounds. New York favourite
Black Tap, which offers artisan burgers and shakes; Il Borro

hotel features an 150-metre outdoor lagoon for
rehabilitating critically endangered sea turtles. The
custom-designed turtle lagoon houses the turtles prior to their
return to the wild.
From early 2017, guests will be able to
participate in turtle feeding sessions and learn about the native
fish from the lagoon’s discovery trail. This is the result of
continued work between Jumeirah and the Dubai Turtle
Rehabilitation Project – which has been running since 2004 in
collaboration with the Dubai Wildlife Protection Office.
