Jebel Ali International Hotels to manage Dubai’s only 4-star beach hotel which will open at the end of 2012.
May 2012 – Dubai will once again feature a 4-star beach hotel on its
coastline, as Jebel Ali International Hotels prepares to open the Ocean
View Hotel on The Walk at JBR beach.
The Ocean View Hotel,
which will be Dubai’s only 4-star beach hotel and the only 4-star hotel
on The Walk, is already built and overlooks the Arabian Gulf and The
Palm Jumeirah. All of the 342 rooms and suites feature sea views that
can be enjoyed from their balconies, or from the room itself. Several
interconnecting rooms are also available for families. Interior
decorating and associate training procedures are presently in process
and on track to be completed in time for the hotel’s late - 2012
The hotel will also offer five restaurants and bars
along with an Executive Lounge for guests staying in club rooms and
suites. Other hotel facilities include a temperature-controlled free
form swimming pool with sea views, a spa, health club, Jacuzzi, steam
room and sauna. Guests at the Ocean View Hotel will be able to enjoy the
public beach at JBR just steps away, which can be accessed from the
swimming pool. Alternatively, guests can take advantage of a
complimentary shuttle to the 5-star private beach at Jebel Ali Golf
Resort & Spa, recently awarded the World Travel Award for the
‘World’s Leading Family Resort’.
The Ocean View Hotel will also
cater to business travellers with a fully equipped conference centre and
2 meeting rooms, many of which feature natural daylight and shaded
balcony space for breaks.
“Positioning is crucial for any new
entrant into Dubai’s maturing hospitality scene and the Ocean View Hotel
will fill a very important gap in the market,” said David Thomson,
Regional General Manager for Jebel Ali International Hotels. “The
4-star classification, prime beachfront location and relaxed family
friendly environment will appeal to a vast cross section of travelers,
though still being very specific about what it stands for. The travel
trade has long since asked for a 4-star beachfront product and we have
no doubt that the response will be huge and extremely positive”.

4-star beach accommodation in Dubai, having previously managed the Oasis
