Mandarin Oriental Jumeira to open early 2019

Beachfront hotel in Dubai will have a forest of lights in the lobby, plus six restaurants and bars.

The first Mandarin Oriental property in the Middle East, Mandarin Oriental Jumeira, Dubai, will open in the first quarter of 2019.

Located in the heart of Dubai with views of the beach, the resort will feature 178 spacious rooms and 78 suites, a stone’s throw from the water’s edge.

A magnificent lobby (pictured above) will welcome guests on arrival with a forest of lights leading to the beach front. Fourteen bronze metal trees standing seven, eight and nine metres high – each with 900 lights – create a sparkling canopy.

The property is also home to six restaurants and bars. Portuguese celebrity chef José Avillez – of two Michelin-starred restaurant Belcanto in Lisbon – is in charge at Portuguese restaurant Tasca, while at Warayaki-style Japanese steakhouse Netsu, Australian-born chef Ross Shonhan will lead the way.

The Mandarin Cake Shop may become a destination in its own right, thanks to its freshly baked bespoke cakes, photogenic patisseries and authentic Arabic sweets.

A 2,000 sqm spa and gym will offer a range of holistic rejuvenation and relaxation treatments.
