JA Resorts and Hotels to add 10 new F&B outlets to its UAE properties
UAE’s JA Resorts and Hotels has revealed that it will be adding another 10 F&B outlets to its properties, taking their total F&B count to 41 by 2019.
At the Arabian Travel Market, the group’s new VP of F&B, Rob Cunningham said that the new restaurants will open in 2019 and that the group will be collaborating with “international chefs of Michelin star acclaim”.
Seven out of the 10 planned outlets are in Dubai.
The hotel group also plans to launch their new ‘81’ restaurant at their upcoming property in JA Lake View. Cunningham explained that ‘81’ is a nod to the year that the hospitality group was formed in 1981.
The other F&B outlets in Dubai are ‘Republik, ‘Bibé’ and Kinara by Vikas Khanna, an Indian restaurant by the Michelin star chef. The JA Beach Hotel which is currently undergoing extensive renovation will also have a new Italian restaurant, a new Middle Eastern restaurant and a new pub.
Partnering with Michelin Chefs:
The hotel group is also partnering with four Michelin star chefs.
While the collaboration with Da Dong, China’s renowned chef is already underway at JA Manafaru, the hotel group will also be working with Chef Greg Malouf to launch two Middle Eastern inspired restaurants in both JA Beach Hotel at JA the Resort and in JA Oasis Beach Tower, the Jumeirah Beach Residence deluxe hotel apartments.
