Jumeirah Group is scheduled to open a new property, named Jumeirah Al Naseem, in Dubai. The Al Naseem, which is Arabic for “sea breeze,” is the final phase of Jumeirah’s goal to transform the Dubai coastline into a tourist attraction. The hotel is scheduled to open by the end of the year.

With landscape design executed by designer Bill Bensley, the 430-guestroom hotel will occupy a 1.25-mile stretch of the beach that overlooks the Arabian Gulf. Architecture teams from South African-based firm North Point collaborated with designers from DSGN on the project, while Mirage Leisure and Development managed the operation.

When it opens, the Jumeirah Al Naseem will be one quarter of the brand’s luxury resort Madinat Jumeirah,  joining the resort’s other hotels: Jumeirah Al Qasr and Jumeirah Mina A'Salam and the Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf summerhouses.

The property will have 387 rooms and 43 suites designed with an open plan, accented with modern emiratic touches. The interior design will be inspired by sand dunes, blue skies, and Dubai's heritage of pearl diving and Bedouin traditions. There will be balconies and extended terraces offering views of the sea, the resort's landscaped gardens and swimming pools and Burj Al Arab Jumeirah. Bathrooms will have Arabic features and walk-in showers.

More than 100 adjacent rooms and 12 family rooms will be available, as well as Ocean Suites, two Presidential Suites and a Royal Suite located on the highest point of the hotel. 

Jumeirah Al Naseem will have more than 10 restaurants and bars, and its own beach club.
