Developments around the Resort

Artist Impression - PTC - Suite

We are delighted to be moving ahead and are on schedule with the extension project that will further enhance our signature property, Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa. We are pleased to announce that we are developing 4 new villas which will comprise of 74 new rooms and suites, built outside the current resort perimeter. The work on these new luxury villas has already begun and we expect to have all structural work complete by May 2012. All external finishes are due for completion by August 2012 whilst the full landscaping works and project completion is expected by the end of September, in preparation for an October opening.

The construction team will operate 7 days a week with the majority of the development work taking place between 10am and 6pm. Although the usual construction machinery will be utilised, we don’t expect this to have a noise impact on our guests, as all work will take place away from Palm Tree Court’s current villas and facilities, in a fenced off work site. With the exception of Villa 6, which will be closed during the works, no other facilities will be affected and visual disturbance will be extremely limited when at the resort. The construction site is accessed through a separate entrance and therefore there will be no direct disturbance to guests in the grounds of the resort.

PTC - Extension

Please inform guests of the ongoing works prior to their arrival; however please reiterate that there will be very limited visual and noise disturbance. As always we will continue to maintain excellent standards of service for all guests throughout their stay.

We would also like to take this opportunity to share our fantastic artist impressions of the new Premium Junior Suites that are being developed. As you will see from the attached images, the design elements and materials used will further enhance the guest experience ensuring ultimate relaxation and luxury living in a modern yet peaceful environment.

Over the coming months, we will ensure that you are frequently updated as we move forward with this exciting project and hope that you join us in embracing the future of Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa.

JA & The Changing Face Of Emiratisation

al bawaba - ja emiratisation driveDubai, UAE – 29 April 2013

On Monday 22nd April 2013, JA Resorts & Hotels held a special celebration at its flagship property, JA Jebel Ali Golf Resort to mark the ten year anniversary of the JA Emiratisation department.

Going back ten years, very few Nationals were employed in Dubai hotels. In response DTCM created the Emiratisation Task Force for Tourism and JA Resorts & Hotels were one of the three founding members. JA Resorts & Hotels in turn also pioneered a dedicated department in order to develop sustainable, long-term employment of nationals within the company’s growing portfolio.

David Thomson, Chief Operating Officer of JA Resorts & Hotels recalled the start of the Emiratisation department. He said “When we introduced our Emiratisation Department back in 2003 we were one of the first hoteliers to do so. Now it’s an industry standard and we’re proud of all the talented UAE Nationals within our properties. We now must ensure we continue to expand our team of professional hoteliers, something which we are very excited about”.

The event was a celebration of success, yet also a time to take stock and thank those who have contributed over the years. Special trophies were presented to representatives from DTCM, TANMIA and ENDP, as well as special thanks to owning company, Dutco Group who have always been a solid support in the growth or Emiratisation at JA Resorts & Hotels. Also numerous associates from across the group of properties were lauded for their ongoing effort in assisting the JA Emiratisation department, a shining example of internal recognition within a company.

A special video, created especially for the celebration was also showcased at the event. The video featured nationals and managers from JA Resorts & Hotels. The video took viewers through the 10 year history of the JA Emiratisation department and highlighted key accomplishments and milestones. The video will be used as a tool of the Emiratisation Department to recruit nationals going forward.

Ghanim Almarri, Director of Emiratisation at JA Resorts & Hotels agreed stating, “Today, JA Resorts & Hotels is an industry leader and our approach to Emiratisation is highly regarded as a ‘best practice’ example. Our vision is to be the premier hotel employer for UAE Nationals, by making the hospitality industry a career of choice”.
