Jumeirah Al Naseem to Open 1 December 2016

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 number of standout features include:

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

• Purpose built turtle lagoon for rehabilitating critically endangered turtles; and

• 43 suites comprising 12 Family Suites, 28 Ocean Suites, 2 Presidential Suites and one 500-sqm Royal Suite.

Four of the many restaurants at the resort have been given to third-party partners and surround the turtle lagoon, creating a mini-social hub within the hotel’s grounds. New York favourite Black Tap, which offers artisan burgers and shakes; Il Borro Tuscan Bistro Dubai, the first outpost of Il Borro in Tuscany, which is an estate owned by the Ferragamo family; the Philippe Starck-designed Japanese Katsuya and the popular Dubai-grown brand Flamingos by Tasha’s. The restaurants will open over the coming weeks.

Turtle Power

The 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.
