4-star beach hotel to open in Dubai
Dubai, May 1, 2012
Jebel Ali International Hotels is on track to open the Ocean View Hotel towards the end of the year, which will be Dubai’s only four-star beach hotel.
The only 4-star hotel on The Walk at JBR beach is already built and overlooks the Arabian Gulf and The Palm Jumeirah.
Several interconnecting rooms are also available for families. Interior decorating and associate training procedures are presently in process, a statement said.
The 341-room hotel will also offer five restaurants and bars along with an Executive Lounge for guests staying in club rooms and suites.
Other hotel facilities include a temperature-controlled free form swimming pool with sea views, a spa, health club, Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna.
Guests may also take advantage of a complimentary shuttle to the five-star private beach at Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa.
The Ocean View Hotel will also cater to business travellers with a fully equipped conference centre and six meeting rooms.
“Positioning is crucial for any new entrant into Dubai’s maturing hospitality scene and the Ocean View Hotel will fill a very important gap in the market,” said David Thomson, regional general manager for Jebel Ali International Hotels.
“The four-star classification, prime beachfront location and relaxed family friendly environment will appeal to a vast cross section of travelers, though still being very specific about what it stands for. The travel trade has long since asked for a four-star beachfront product and we have no doubt that the response will be huge and extremely positive,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
