Mandarin Oriental to open in Dubai's Jumeirah
Set to open in 2017, the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has shared its latest project - an urban resort in the heart of Dubai's luxury Jumeirah neighbourhood. The ambitious hotel will feature 12 super exclusive overwater villas within its 200 rooms and suites and each will come complete with a private infinity pool, from which guests can dip their toes into the warm waters of the Arabian Gulf.
In fact, the concept of water is intrinsic to the hotel's design, which was conceptualised by Kuala Lumpur-based design firm DesignWilkes. The project will feature a series of beautiful infinity pools that will organically flow down towards the beach.
The Mandarin Oriental Dubai will house nine restaurants and bars, including a fine dining destination set on a pier with a dock to allow for private yachts to moor outside. A second pier will station a sunset bar, and a Mandarin Oriental Cake Shop, casual poolside eatery and lobby lounge will also cater to the city's discerning foodies.
