Jumeirah Al Naseem will open its doors on December 1st, bringing a contemporary architectural twist to its sister properties within Madinat Jumeirah Resort, and a guest experience focused on a journey of discovery through the modern culture of Dubai.
The final chapter of the multi-award winning Madinat Jumeirah also marks the completion of Jumeirah Group’s transformation of two kilometres of coastline into a major tourist destination.
This process began in 1997 with the opening of Jumeirah Beach Hotel and continued with the iconic Burj Al Arab Jumeirah and Madinat Jumeirah.
Richard Alexander, general manager, Jumeirah Al Naseem, said: “The last year has been a fascinating journey of planning and preparation for the opening of Jumeirah Al Naseem.
“In being given the challenge of writing the final chapter in the story of Madinat Jumeirah, we didn’t just want to create a 430-room beachfront hotel – we wanted to bring a wave of vibrancy that matches the energy of Dubai.
“We have been given a wonderful opportunity to marry a spectacular beach front location with a contemporary architectural twist on our sister properties and Jumeirah’s legendary service, and to showcase the best that this dynamic, energetic and visionary city has to offer.
“Both in the interior and exterior design, and in the creation of the guest experience, we have been led by our concept of ‘Al Bait Baitak’, meaning ‘make yourself at home’.
“For our guests this will mean an inspiring yet relaxed atmosphere and an opportunity to understand why residents are so proud of their home city through a continually evolving series of permanent and temporary showcases that bring features of contemporary Dubai into the hotel.
“We are all incredibly excited about welcoming our first guests in December and ensuring that their time with us is unforgettable.”
Arabic for ‘sea breeze’, the name ‘Al Naseem’ reflects both the unrivalled beach location of the hotel and the unique design of the guest rooms and hotel features, which evokes a sense of calm and relaxation.
The interior décor of the 430 rooms is inspired by sea breeze, sand dunes, Dubai’s pearl diving heritage and Bedouin traditions.
The large open plan bathrooms have large sliding doors for privacy and spacious walk in showers inspired by Arabic hammams.
The balconies and extended terraces offer spectacular views of the sea, the resort’s landscaped gardens and swimming pools, and Burj Al Arab Jumeirah.
Rooms with extended terraces enable guests to relax outside and in the summer months the doors can be closed to create an extended living space.
The hotel is located so close to the water that the sounds of the sea reach guest rooms, open terraces and outdoor restaurants.
