The popular Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai will be shutting its doors for a few months this year while it undergoes major renovations from mid-May to early October 2018.
The hotel will relaunch in time for its 21st-anniversary celebration in December 2018. This is part of a two-year renovation programme, during which it will refurbish 425 guest bedrooms and public spaces, including sections of the beach, outdoor facilities, restaurants, dining outlets and lobby area.
Sven Wiedenhaupt, the general manager of Jumeirah Beach Hotel, said: "The famed wave-shaped exterior of the hotel will remain untouched, but the experience inside will be revamped, ensuring that we are geared up to create another 20 years of memories."
Wild Wadi Waterpark, however, will continue operating 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.
