Jumeirah Al Naseem set for summer opening in Dubai

Jumeirah Al Naseem, Madinat Jumeirah’s newest hotel, will open during summer 2016, marking the completion of one of the world’s leading luxury resorts.

With construction of the 430-room ‘resort within a resort’ well underway, reservations are now open.

Arabic for ‘sea breeze’, the name ‘Al Naseem’ reflects both the location of the hotel and the unique inside-out design, which evokes a sense of calm and relaxation for those seeking an ‘alternative’ Dubai experience.

Jumeirah Al Naseem is set in the midst of a two kilometre stretch of sand, reaching from Jumeirah Beach Hotel in the east to Jumeirah Al Qasr in the west, overlooking Burj Al Arab Jumeirah and the Arabian Gulf.


As such, its opening will mark both the completion of Madinat Jumeirah - ‘the Arabian Resort of Dubai’ – and the final chapter in Jumeirah Group’s transformation of a stretch of Dubai’s coastline into a major touristic destination.

Reflecting the advancement of the construction, a “Topping Out” ceremony was conducted last week.

The ceremony was attended by Madinat Jumeirah resort general manager Margaret Paul, Jumeirah Al Naseem general manager Richard Alexander and senior members of Mirage Leisure & Development, their consultants Woods Bagot and Aurecon, and Al Futtaim-Carillion, the main contractor.

The hotel aims to show a different side of Dubai, appealing to those discerning travellers who like to explore and may not have considered Dubai before.

It joins the grand Jumeirah Al Qasr, the peaceful and recently renovated Jumeirah Mina A’Salam and the exquisite summerhouses of Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf, to become the fourth hotel within the resort.
