Jumeirah Beach Hotel has been one of Dubai’s most visited hotels since it was opened in 1997. Now, 21 years later, the hotel is set to undergo significant makeover before it reopens in 2018.
As of May next year, the hotel will stop booking guests as the renovations will include 425 guest rooms and public spaces including sections of the beach, outdoor facilities, restaurants, dining outlets and lobby area.
However, some facilities will remain open during that time, such as Talise gym and café, certain parts of the beach, The Kids Club for Talise members, La Veranda restaurant for lunch, and Wild Wadi Waterpark.
“The hotel will reopen its doors again in October to kick off 21st anniversary celebrations”, said Sven Wiedenhaupt, General Manager Jumeirah Beach Hotel.
“The famed wave-shape exterior of the hotel will remain untouched but the experience inside will be revamped, ensuring we are geared up to create another twenty years of memories.” he added.
For the guests who have booked stays at Jumeirah Beach Hotel between May and October, the hotel will offer alternative stays at the Madinat Jumeirah.
Those guests in addition to guests at other Jumeirah properties including Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, Madinat Jumeirah, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, Jumeirah Emirates Towers and Jumeirah Creekside Hotel will be offered unlimited and complimentary visits to the waterpark for the duration of the stay.
