First look: Jumeirah Al Naseem is set to open
Al Bait Baitak! Welcome to Jumeirah Al Naseem. Guided by that warm hospitality principle, Madinat Jumeirah's newest member offers an authentic Arabian experience for travellers, where the design marries the classic with the contemporary and the suites are inspired by the culture as well as the stunning landscape in which it is built on.
"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," said Richard Alexander, General Manager, Jumeirah Al Naseem. "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."
Feel the pulse of Dubai as you enter the lobby, greeted by female staff dressed in traditional abayas before appreciating the local artworks that pepper the hotel grounds including the masterpiece by local artist Mattar Bin Lahej; a stainless steel sculpture of a poem written in Arabic calligraphy by Dubai's ruler HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. In the luxuriously designed and decorated suites, locally-branded chocolates as well as Omani cosmetic kits by Amouage further immerse the guest into the Arabian experience.
Culinary options are aplenty with seven themed restaurants as well as a further four that surround the lagoon, including Katsuya, designed by renowned French designer Philippe Starck. As for the 150m lagoon, it is the first of its kind within a hotel that is dedicated to the protection of endangered turtles. Guests are invited to feed these magnificent creatures as they are rehabilitated before being released back into the wild.
