Jebel Ali International announce new JBR hotel
Jebel Ali International has announced JBR's newest beach hotel - the Ocean View Hotel - will open its doors to the public later this year.
Ocean View is the latest addition to Jebel Ali International's portfolio, which includes the Hatta Fort Hotel and the award-winning Jebel Ali Beach Resort & Spa.
Dubai's only four-star beach hotel, Ocean View is already built and overlooks the Arabian Gulf and The Palm Jumeirah. All 341 rooms and suites feature sea views that can be enjoyed from their balconies, or from the room itself.
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 6 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," he added.
