The first thing you notice at Mandarin Oriental Jumeira is the building’s wood-panelled façade and spacious tiered balconies. The effect is by turns ultra-modern and classically chic, and creates a fitting first impression of what’s to come. A vast courtyard – opening out to the broad Jumeirah beach on one side – houses a large pool network where lofty palms, swim-up bars and private cabanas set a tropical scene. Reaching the beach from here is a matter of footsteps, and showcases the warm waters of the Arabian Gulf with the glittering skyline views beyond, confirming Mandarin Oriental Jumeira’s setting as one of the most enviable in Dubai.
Mandarin Oriental Jumeira Location
Mandarin Oriental Jumeira enjoys the accolade of being the closest beachfront resort to downtown Dubai. It’s an unparalleled position. To put it in perspective, take a look at how short some of the local journey times are: La Mer, with its beachside shopping, dining and waterparks, is just five minutes away. Downtown Dubai itself is only 15 minutes away, including the Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Opera, the Dubai Fountain and the Dubai Mall. And, for convenient transfers, Dubai International Airport is a mere 20-minute drive from the hotel. All the luxury of the Mandarin brand’s famous hospitality, on the doorstep of the UAE’s biggest and best cultural highlights.
Things to do at Mandarin Oriental Jumeira
Hit the spa, dine in style, entertain the little ones at the kids club or simply while away afternoons by the pool or on the beach. Life at Mandarin Oriental takes on a casual tempo, with time and space to do as much or as little as you please. The spa combines the hotelier’s Oriental heritage with Arabian traditions to create signature experiences such as the Nomadic Sensory Journey, featuring Emirati drumming. Jeffrey Wilkes’ innovative design comes into its own at the spa too, where fluid surfaces and space age contours create a soothing ambience. Dining at this new Mandarin Oriental hotel in Dubai is an equally memorable experience and features six restaurants and lounges with cuisines ranging from Japanese to Portuguese. Onsite venues like Netsu and Tasca are fast becoming the talk of the Dubai foodie scene.
