Twin openings for JA in September

JA Beach Hotel completed its 2019 makeover and reopened for business on September 1, even as JA Lake View Hotel opened on September 22, both within the one-million square metre JA The Resort, in Jebel Ali Beach, Dubai.

JA Beach Hotel has completed a renovation of the entire building façade, now showcasing sleek all-glass balconies and new furniture, affording panoramic sea views of the 800-metre private beach. The bedrooms that have always been a firm favourite amongst families, have been further improved with modern wood tile flooring, new beds and furniture in a fresh colour scheme of soft greys, neutrals and relaxing hues.

One of the biggest and most exciting changes are the new restaurants and bars opening at JA Beach Hotel. The JA Beach Hotel team will launch a stunning new romantic Italian restaurant, Sette, with 360 dome views of the resort in October, as well as Phoenicia restaurant – a collaboration with the ‘master of modern middle eastern cuisine’ – multi award-winning Greg Malouf. JA Beach Hotel will also be home to Vasco Da Gama, a new bar and lounge based on the intrepid Portuguese explorer on top of the existing restaurants which were also refreshed.

Boasting a strong base of 30 per cent repeat guests every year, JA Beach Hotel has a loyal following and families who treasure years of good memories at the property. The hotel experiences high volumes of repeat guests from Europe, while also providing UAE residents with an ideal staycation destination a short drive from the city centre. A true escape from the city vibe of Dubai, JA Beach Hotel has always offered a resort feel, with a surrounding expanse of greenery and wildlife, a private marina and a host of family activities to suit all generations.

An intrinsic landmark in the history of Dubai’s rapid development, the JA Beach Hotel, once known as the Jebel Ali Beach Hotel, was one of the first leisure hotels built in the city.

The extensive refurbishment to JA Beach Hotel in 2019 is an important step in the repositioning of JA The Resort in Jebel Ali Beach, which also saw the JA Lake View Hotel open on the sprawling grounds.

A unique structure with panoramic views over the golf course and Arabian sea, JA Lake View Hotel is described as a ‘design-driven property dedicated to sustainability’.

Flanked by a symbolic 800-year-old Olive Tree, the sleek, contemporary hotel works with sustainable partners to provide amenities, solar panels to power parts of the hotel, cutting-edge technologies to minimise food waste and facilitate paperless check-in, having already removed plastic bottles. For the first time in the Middle East, voice-activated Volera-Alexa will provide instant virtual assistance to guests in their rooms.

The hotel features 348 luxurious rooms and suites, restaurant concepts driven by chefs of Michelin-star acclaim, three additional outdoor pools and a spectacular rooftop bar. Kinara by Vikas Khanna is the stylish yet casual signature restaurant presenting authentic dishes from the diverse regions of India and South Asia. It will also feature 81 – a buffet restaurant named after the inaugural year of JA Resorts & Hotels first property, Republik – a modern gastropub and Bibé, a vibrant rooftop mixology lounge with views of the sprawling estate.

The new hotel is designed to be spacious and relaxing, with a focus on light and space, and a neutral colour palette complementing the natural surrounds of the green landscape and saltwater lake. The property also offers five meeting rooms with floor to ceiling windows and superb views, ideal for forward thinking companies who wish to bring energy and focus to their meetings and events.

As the closest resort to EXPO 2020, JA Lake View Hotel joins the award-winning JA Beach Hotel and the Mediterranean style villa-suites of JA Palm Tree Court to become the only true all-inclusive resort in Dubai. Set along 800-metres of private beach, JA The Resort claims over 1 million square metres of leisure facilities.
