This modern beachfront property, divided into three buildings, sits amid perfectly manicured lawns peppered with palms and pools. All 509 rooms and suites have balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows with either sea or city views. Deluxe suites come in pale shades paired with ornate Italianate style furniture, including a grand four-poster bed, while other categories are more contemporary with pops of crimson or moss. Things take a historical turn in the Caracalla Spa, which has Roman-style décor (lots of statues and mosaics), offering Elemis and Pevonia Botanica treatments. The 11 restaurants and bars include celebrity chef Richard Sandoval’s rooftop modern Mexican spot, Maya.
In the Area
The Jumeirah strip of mostly private beaches is close to the Dubai Marina and the man-made Palm Jumeirah Island. The connecting beachfront boulevard includes The Walk, a popular stretch of cafes, restaurants, bars, and shops, such as Italian-born designer Gabriella Cortese’s Antik Batik. The shopping and entertainment continues at nearby Dubai Marina Mall and Ibn Battuta Mall. Golf lovers are well catered for, with two championship courses on the doorstep: the Emirates Golf Club and Montgomerie.
How to Get There
We booked this hotel mainly because it was on the JBR but, in particular, to the great reviews given on the staff and their attention to detail. I have to say we were not disappointed. On arrival we were greeted by Dhan who had an amazing memory for our room number. He was such a cheery guy and would brighten up anyone's day. The second person I would like to particulary mention is Sayed who looked after our room. He went above and beyond the call of duty. Our room was always left immaculate and I was was particularly touched by the beautiful flowers he left for our wedding anniversary and my husband's birthday. Such a thoughtful thing to do. We also had use of the Club Room which is totally recommeded and so relaxing in the evening. Again all the staff from the girl who greeted us at the desk to the waiters gave us first class service. The Meridien group obviously spend the correct amount of budget on staffing training .......... and it shows. Well done. We will be back and we will certainly be recommending this hotel to family and friends.
This was by far the best hotel my husband and I stayed in and we've traveled alot. The staff was amazing and always attentive to the guest. Our room was beyond amazing and the hotel grounds were kept beautifully. The hotel is situated on the JBR which was very convenient for restaurants of all kind. I can not wait for another visit! Please look no further and book this hotel!
Once again we stayed here at our favourite hotel in Dubai. As always the staff are great
very friendly and always ready to help. Lots going on at this hotel. Many activities for kids and entertainment around. The grounds are beautiful with excellent pool areas and the gymn is really big with friendly instructors ready to help, the spa area very good for relaxing. We tried the new pizza restaurant called La Strega run by Hazem who was so friendly and the service he gave us was just fantastic, all the staff were very friendly
Alehana was also extremely friendly and although she was busy made time to speak to
us Thanks guys will definitely be coming back there.
Overall as always great hotel great stay and great staff see you all soon. I umar
Right from the moment we arrived we were treated like special guests.
A welcome drink was much appreciated and was delicious.
Our room was clean and very spacious.
Dinner in the restaurants we tried was always of great quality with service to match!
The pool areas were all clean, comfy sunbeds, attentive staff, all happy to assist with parasols and towels.
We had a wonderful stay, very relaxing.
Good for adults and close to local shops.
Beautifully run hotel, great staff, stunning food, amazing grounds, everything you could wish for with lovely pools and the beach available too. Being it was our anniversary we were upgraded to having Club Lounge access (highly recommended) and they also left a bottle of sparkling wine and some cake in our room when we were out.
One and only issue (and not the hotels fault) is the annoying almost constant droan/banging of the new building going up next door. On the Saturday and Sunday it started at 6.45am!!!
A shame as perfect in every other way
