Iconic Jumeirah hotel to reopen in Dubai after revamp

Jumeirah Group says Jumeirah Beach Hotel will reopen on October 19 following a five-month transformation progamme

Jumeirah Group on Monday announced that its iconic Jumeirah Beach Hotel will reopen on October 19 following a five-month transformation progamme. 

The company said the new Jumeirah Beach Hotel returns with a "more contemporary ambiance and a host of new dining experiences".

Jose Silva, Jumeirah Group CEO said: “In 1997 Jumeirah Beach Hotel was Dubai’s pioneer in luxury beach hotels and has been the canvas on which 20 years of memories have been made.

"For our loyal returning international guests - many of whom see members of the hotel’s team as friends - and our local community, Jumeirah Beach Hotel is their most cherished holiday and staycation destination, largely in part to the legacy of coastal nostalgia awoken when they step back through the doors of the hotel.”

He said the hotel, which has welcomed more than 1 million guests since it opened, has "retained its spirit of timeless fun, yet offers an elevated experience of relaxed luxury".

Todd Cilano, senior regional vice president and general manager of Jumeirah Beach Hotel, added: “Words cannot do justice to how impressive the Jumeirah Beach Hotel looks. For our returning guests, it is still the much loved hotel that has been a familiar home away from home, but it has been completely re-energised.

"We are beyond excited to welcome our loyal guests to see their reaction to the hard work and investment we have put into the hotel over the summer, as well as welcome a whole new generation of Jumeirah Beach Hotel fans.”

Guests will wake up in HYPNOS beds that come with the seal of approval of Her Majesty, The Queen of England while a mix of new and old dining concepts will return such as D&A, La Parilla and Uptown Bar, as well as Villa Beach, Beachcombers and Ocean Blue.
