Inside Dubai’s most highly anticipated new hotel: Jumeirah Al Naseem

Dubai’s most highly anticipated new hotel development is set to open its doors in a couple of weeks time.  Located in the heart of the palatial Madinat Jumeirah complex, Jumeirah Al Naseem is the fourth hotel to be built here – occupying the last prized beachfront plot.

We last visited the hotel during construction in September, and, if we’re honest, even the unfinished rooms were so inviting that we’d have quite happily stayed in the building site.  Things have come a long way since then and, as the countdown to the opening party begins, we can’t wait to hear the first reviews from paying guests.

Facilities

All guests staying at Jumeirah Al Naseem will receive unlimited complimentary access to the record-breaking rides and tot-pleasing splash parks of Wild Wadi Waterpark, which is only a 7-minute walk away from the hotel.

Jumeirah Al Naseem also benefits from all of the Madinat’s other major attractions – including the air conditioned souks and Talise spa.

Uniquely, the property features a section reserved solely for use by adults – with facilities including a large adults-only pool and terrace.

They’ll be plenty of family-friendly facilities too, with an additional two pools, as well as direct access to the private sandy beach and a Kids’ Club. Nature-lovers and fans of Finding Dory might be interested in visiting the resorts’ turtle lagoon, which will be home to the rescued turtles currently being cared for by the Dubai Turtle Rehabilitation Project.

Dining

It’s well worth upgrading to the half board package at Jumeirah Al Naseem.  It takes the concept of ‘dine around’ to a whole new level, enabling you to have either lunch or dinner at a choice of over 60 restaurants, including those at other Jumeirah properties and also some in Dubai Mall.  You can even use your half board at the outlets within the Wild Wadi Water Park, so it works out to be exceptionally good value.

Jumeirah Al Naseem Restaurant

As well as the 50+ restaurants at sister properties, Jumeirah Al Naseem itself will ultimately have more than 10 restaurants and nightlife venues in-resort.  World-class chefs are being drafted in to oversee the restaurants.  Rumour has it the offering will include an Italian eatery headed up by the Ferragamo family, who have earned countless accolades for their landmark luxury property (Il Borro) in Tuscany, which promises to be very special indeed.

Rooms

The decor style of the hotel’s 430 rooms and suites has been tastefully toned down – compared to the more vibrant interiors we’re used to seeing in Arabian hotels.  Less glittery (but still luxurious), a stylish greige-infused scheme has been deployed, inspired by romantic images of sand dunes and old-world pearl diving.  The bathrooms are a highlight; larger than average, they’re marble-clad beauties, with enormous walk-in rain showers.

Add ‘Resort’ to your room name, and you’ll overlook the landscaped gardens and pools, offering the best value.  Add ‘Ocean’, and you’re going up in the world: situated on the higher floors these rooms enjoy far-reaching views across the sea towards the iconic Burj Al Arab.

Jumeirah Al Naseem also has 43 exclusive open-plan suites.  These all feature an outdoor terrace which – ingeniously – can be ‘enclosed’ during the summer months, enabling you to turn on the air conditioning and sit ‘outside’ – when otherwise it’d be too hot.  During the winter, when temperatures average a much more pleasant 28°C, these outdoor areas really enhance the living spaces.  The most coveted room in the whole resort is the penthouse Royal Suite; an impressive 500sq in size, it even features a 14-seater cinema.

    The Madinat is a fantastic resort and Al Naseem has been eagerly awaited. I stayed at Dar al Masyaf a few months ago and can’t speak highly enough of the Madinat.

    Hi Spencer, is there any update on the grand opening? Are you going to be there? I hope you didn’t stay in the attractive building site until opening day!
