Mandarin Oriental brings its touch of class to the Middle East
The extravagant lobby welcomes guests to the Mandarin Oriental Jumeira
Mandarin Oriental’s newest offering opens in Dubai’s Jumeirah beach, growing the luxury brand’s presence in the Middle East.
As if Dubai couldn’t get any more prestigious, a new Mandarin Oriental hotel has opened on the Jumeirah seafront, one of the most coveted locations in the Emirati city.
This luxury 5-star property has all you would expect of a Mandarin Oriental hotel, and much more.
We take a look inside the design of this stunning property.
Another jewel in the Middle East
Dubai has long been the haunt of glamorous and glitzy buildings, with the city’s architecture often stealing the spotlight.
The latest addition to the city’s skyline is a brand-new Mandarin Oriental hotel, the Mandarin Oriental Jumeira.
Located on Dubai’s premier beach destination, the hotel has panoramic views of both the pristine waters of the Arabian Gulf and the glittering lights of the city behind.
This enviable address will no doubt draw discerning travellers from all over the world, but it is not just the setting that attracts, but also the opulent design of this 256-key resort.
An address for classic luxury in Dubai
Mandarin Oriental has made a name for itself through a commitment to stellar service and setting, and the Jumeirah beach offering certainly doesn’t disappoint.
Designed by boutique interior design firm Jeffrey Wilkes, the property marries classic style and sophistication in the guest rooms with exaggerated decor in the lobby and common areas.
The rooms are executed in neutral shades of soft greys and browns, with pops of teal and aquamarine to give them a contemporary feel.
The headboards and carpets are textured and patterned, contrasting with minimal decoration on the walls to create a relaxing ambience.
Floor-to-ceiling windows afford views of the sea or the city, depending on the orientation, and most guest rooms or suites have private balconies or terraces.
The hotel also benefits from its beachfront location, and infinity pools trick they eye into thinking that each body of water blends into the next.
The Mandarin Oriental Jumeira boasts six different restaurants, among them Tasca by Portuguese chef Jose Avillez, as well as Netsu, a Warayaki-style Japanese steakhouse by Australian chef Ross Shonhan.
A state-of-the-art spa has a host of treatment rooms spread out over 2,000m2, and the meeting and events facilities make the hotel ideal for business as well as leisure travellers.
