Countdown is underway for the opening this autumn of a new deluxe resort at Jebel Dhanna, 240km west of Abu Dhabi city, the first move in the development of the area as a major tourism destination.The 109-room five-star Danat Resort Jebel Dhanna is owned and operated by Danat Hotels & Resorts, a division of National Corporation of Tourism & Hotels (NCT&H).
The launch of the new resort - the first 5-Star deluxe hotel on the undeveloped west coast of the UAE - marks a new phase in its development with the addition of the upscale property. Key to the leisure sector, the resort is a “breakaway” destination: one of its key selling points is a 800 metres of unspoilt beach.
According to general manager Manoj Kanwal, the resort will offer its guests the chance to experience the more preserved parts of the UAE. He said: “Everybody is looking for the chance to discover something different, whether they are UAE residents looking for a weekend getaway, or visitors and tour operators from further afield.
“We are confident that our product offering is something that stands out from the rest of the crowd.”
Combined with a fresh look at the Emirates’ landscape, the resort also offers top-of-the-range facilities to attract sectors such as the conference and incentive markets to the west coast for the first time.
He said: “Thanks to its location and extensive banqueting and meeting facilities, Danat Resort Jebel Dhanna is an excellent solution for team-building, company retreats and corporate guests. We can cater for up to 1,000 people at events like this, making it one of the most comprehensive corporate offerings in the UAE marketplace.
For leisure guests, Danat Resort Jebel Dhanna, has a Body and Soul spa and health centre, where dedicated therapists are on hand to offer a full range of aromatherapy treatments, massages and the latest hot stone treatments through to physical relaxation and beauty facials.
Turning to food and beverage, Danat Resort Jebel Dhanna offers an innovative approach to cuisine, with a range of menu options available throughout the day at its five restaurants and bars.
Tides - All day dining restaurant, offers a full range of Continental and Asian dishes as well as exotic theme nights. Snacks and salads are available by the pool and beach until late, and the C-View lobby café serves drinks and pastries, cakes or pizzas.
The resort’s flagship restaurant is Zaytoun, offering pan-Arab dining featuring delicacies from the Mediterranean, while L’Attitude is open until late, perfect for live entertainment, cocktails and dancing.
Danat resort’s leisure offering encompasses two floodlit tennis courts, two squash courts and a nine-hole, par-36 sand golf course and driving range, ensuring sports enthusiasts are well looked after.
