Atkins-designed Jumeirah Beach Hotel closes for renovation

Dubai’s Jumeirah Beach Hotel, designed by WS Atkins, has closed for renovation works over the summer, with plans to reopen in October later this year.

The ongoing works are part of a two-year renovation programme where the hotel is expected to refurbish 425 guest bedrooms and public spaces, including sections of the beach, outdoor facilities, restaurants, dining outlets and lobby area, according to Hotelier Middle East.

The hotel will relaunch in early October, in time for its 21st anniversary celebrations in December 2018.

Sven Wiedenhaupt, general manager Jumeirah Beach Hotel told “The famed wave-shape exterior of the hotel will remain untouched but the experience inside will be revamped, ensuring we are geared up to create another twenty years of memories.”

The hotel’s popular nightlife destination, 360°, has closed its doors permanently and another concept will take its place.
