Hotel to stop receiving guests during ‘significant makeover’
Dubai’s landmark Jumeirah Beach Hotel is to undergo a “significant makeover” next summer, with the project works taking place between mid-May and early October 2018.
The hotel will stop receiving guests to allow for the completion of a two-year renovation programme, Jumeirah said in a statement.
The work will extend to 425 guest bedrooms, the public spaces, lobby, retail areas, beach and outdoor facilities, restaurants and dining outlets. This follows initial renovation work completed in 2017, that covered 172 rooms and 3 suites, the Kids Club, beach and beachfront restaurants.
“We are very excited that Jumeirah Beach Hotel is to undergo such a significant transformation. The refurbishment project has taken careful planning and consideration, and although both our loyal guests who stay with us year after year and the Dubai community will miss visiting their favourite hotel and restaurants during its renovation, I can assure them that a brand new Jumeirah Beach Hotel experience is coming, that will be well worth the wait. The famed wave-shape exterior of the hotel will remain untouched but the experience inside will be revamped,” said Sven Wiedenhaupt, general manager of the Jumeirah Beach Hotel.
