Luxury Dubai hotel Jumeirah Al Qasr has completed a refurbishment of its rooms and suites, adding what it called “contemporary flair” to its traditional Arabic style.

The property is within the Madinat Jumeirah resort, which includes hotels Jumeirah Mina A’Salam and Jumeirah Al Naseem, and the 29 summer houses of Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf.

A Tried and Tested review of Jumeirah Al Naseem, published in 2017, can be read here.

Jumeirah Al Qasr opened in 2004 and was the second to open within the Madinat complex, which offers shared facilities and dining options for guests.

Its 294 rooms, which all have terraces or balconies, have been refurbished in navy, orange and blue tones, with design by Khuan Chew of KCA International Interior Design.

Rooms come in nine categories ranging in size from 55 sqm to 115 sqm.

The three-bedroom Royal Suite and two-bedroom Presidential Suites have been updated, with arabesque ceiling joists and mosaics added into the flooring and a new feature wall in the Presidential Suite.

The hotel’s distinctive design includes 18 golden horses leading to the hotel entrance, waterways running for 2km throughout the property and a five-tonne crystal chandelier in the lobby.

It features a 2km private beach, acclimatised swimming pool, spa and forty hectares of gardens, restaurants and pool bars.

Restaurants include American-style ‘meatery’ The Hide and beachside Lebanese restaurant Khaymat Al Bahar.

Rebecca Nachanakian, General Manager of Jumeirah Al Qasr and Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf, said:

“The newly renovated rooms encourage a total cultural immersion of modern Arabia, yet with the traditional design and architecture the hotel is famed for.”

Dubai-based hotel group Jumeirah has 15 properties in the Middle East, including the flagship Burj Al Arab, five properties in Europe and three in Asia. A further 18 properties are under construction.
