Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai has shut its doors for a few months while it plans on undergoing major renovations from until 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.

“The ultimate family lifestyle destination, Jumeirah Beach Hotel is to undergo a significant makeover this summer,” said a spokesman for the hotel. “The hotel will stop receiving guests to allow for complete a renovation, covering guest bedrooms and suites, public areas and restaurants.”

However, 360°, the popular nightlife destination with a rooftop bar at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel has closed its doors permanently and another concept will take its place. 

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 told, “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.
