Four Seasons announces new resort on Dubai’s world-renowned Jumeirah Beach Road
Dubai city blooms every day. The luxury hospitality market of the Emirate is enhanced by another project in the heart of Jumeirah Beach. Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, in collaboration with UAE-based holding company Bright Start L.L.C., announced their plans for a resort property with a prime beach-front location and convenient access to the main commercial district on Sheikh Zayed Road.
Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach is the most highly anticipated addition to Dubai’s luxury hotel scene. The property will be situated on a 11-acre (4.45 hectare) natural waterfront site along the Arabian Gulf. Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach has been designed by world renowned architect WATG, with interior design by San Fransisco based BAMO.
The Resort – which is expected to open by mid 2014 – will welcome individual leisure and business guests as well as meetings and incentives groups, capitalizing on its prime location in one of the city’s most elite residential districts and located just two kilometres (1.2 miles) from Dubai’s central commercial district and key tourism landmarks along Sheikh Zayed Road.
“Being the Middle East’s biggest tourism hub with a highly mature hospitality industry, it was important for us to be in Dubai with a strong product that can serve as one of the company flagships in this region,” said Kathleen Taylor, president and CEO, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “As with all markets across the globe in which Four Seasons operates, it was important for us to take the time to find our niche here as well as identify a partner that first and foremost shares our service and business values. We are confident that we not only have an unparalleled location, but also an excellent development partner – two key factors that will allow us to offer what guests travelling to Dubai on business or pleasure desire and have come to expect from Four Seasons.”
With 237 rooms, including 49 suites, the Resort will target an almost equal mix of leisure and business guests, with a distinct leaning towards a residential style product while offering business guests the personalized support and service synonymous with Four Seasons across the globe.
The Resort will be home to at least three restaurants, and poolside dining. The function spaces which have beachfront access will include a 600 square metre (6,458 square foot) ballroom and five meeting rooms. In keeping with its resort positioning, the property will also be home to a world class spa, indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts and private beach club.
