Key features of the cosmopolitan site will include a souk and traditional spice market, with a variety of casual dining concepts and cafes scattered amidst lush landscaping in keeping with the local environment. The tranquility of the site will be enhanced by themed waterways accessible by abra, in recognition of the traditional water transport.

The Jumeirah Al Ain, comprising of 220 well-appointed guestrooms and suites as well as luxury chalets and lofts, will adjoin the Al Ain Mall through a span of newly developed high end retail outlets.

"Traditionally, Al Ain has always been a lush desert oasis, and we are hoping that this development will also serve as an oasis of luxury hospitality for the surrounding area, completing the golden triangle of Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain," said Gerald Lawless, Executive Chairman, Jumeirah Group.
