Jumeirah Beach Hotel plans major expansion
Dubai, July 26, 2014
UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has endorsed the fifth phase of the Jumeirah Beach Hotel expansion plan, which is set for completion in 2018.
The masterplan vision and concept for the expansion was delivered by global architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan. The project was undertaken on behalf of Jumeirah Group, with the practice’s expert designers in Abu Dhabi and Lisbon, Portugal, partnering closely with the client on the project.
The project will see the addition of an ultra-luxury resort to the existing Jumeirah Beach Hotel, which will comprise 350 hotel rooms with panoramic beachfront views of Burj Al Arab, dedicated new beach offering private beach experiences, recreational marine facilities that encompass spas, health clubs, elevated tennis courts, a world-class sports complex and a range of ocean-facing retail, food and beverage outlets, a statement said.
The new resort will see extensive expansion of the existing yacht marina doubling its current capacity. It will also offer a variety of vibrant leisure facilities, equipped with state-of-the-art entertainment amenities.
The expansion project is in line with Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid’s vision to strengthen Dubai as a global tourism hub and position the Emirate as the number one tourism destination worldwide. It supports the implementation of Dubai Vision 2020 to attract 20 million tourists by 2020.
Jumeirah Group, a global luxury hotel company and a member of Dubai Holding, currently manages 22 luxury hotels in over 10 countries with plans to add ten new hotels to its Dubai portfolio in the next few years.
Distinguished by its global reach with 16 studios across world centres, unrivalled diversity with 500+ design experts and distinctive client focus with over 75 per cent income from repeat business, Broadway Malyan creates world-class and fully-integrated cities, places and buildings to unlock lasting value and deliver a ‘return on design’. - TradeArabia News Service
