Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai will be shutting its doors for a few months next year while it plans on undergoing major renovations from mid-May to early October 2018.

The hotel will relaunch in early next October, in time for its 21st anniversary celebrations in December 2018. This is a part of a two-year renovation programme where it will refurbish 425 guest bedrooms and public spaces including sections of the beach, outdoor facilities, restaurants, dining outlets and lobby area.

Guests who have existing bookings at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel during the renovation period will be offered alternative stays in Dubai at  properties within Madinat Jumeirah.

Sven Wiedenhaupt, general manager Jumeirah Beach Hotel said, “The famed wave-shape exterior of the hotel will remain untouched but the experience inside will be revamped, ensuring we are geared up to create another twenty years of memories.”

However,  Wild Wadi Waterpark will operate as normal for both external guests, and on an unlimited and complimentary basis for all guests staying at Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, Madinat Jumeirah, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, Jumeirah Emirates Towers and Jumeirah Creekside Hotel.

Jumeirah Group has also recently decided to enter the Bahrain hospitality market with a 167-key hotel, which will be called Jumeirah Royal Saray. Jumeirah Group currently operates 20 hotels in nine destinations, managing more than 6000 hotel rooms.
