Dubai ’s pioneering Resort hotel Jebel Ali Hotel, a legend in the hospitality industry situated within the Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa, reopened its marble lobby to guests last week after successfully completing a 5 month refurbishment programme. The renovation covered all 260 rooms and suites, executive lounge, lifts, lobby, corridors, meeting facilities and the Italian restaurant La Traviata.

“We are delighted with the end product and it gives me an enormous sense of pride to see the hotel open again and on time. The first guest who checked in was a repeat guest and he was extremely impressed with the changes, a sentiment which has been echoed regularly in the last week,” said David Thomson, General Manager of the Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa. “It is very satisfying to have the Resort now complete with both Jebel Ali Hotel and Palm Tree Court & Spa open for the festive period with great rates available to experience the new product.”

The new guest rooms have been completely refurbished and transformed with the addition of sleek new dark wood furniture, contemporary colours and technological enhancements. Other public areas of the hotel enjoyed similar attention, including the Peacock Lounge where guests in premium room categories can enjoy breakfast and light snacks during the day.

Jebel Ali Hotel’s new conference centre now comprises six fully equipped meeting rooms that can accommodate conferences for up to 700 guests with the latest technology in communication techniques, audio and visual aids.

The hotel’s Italian restaurant, La Traviata has also had a makeover with a new look and an exciting new dinner menu designed by Italian Head Chef Juri Pelusi.

The 128-acre Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa features two hotels, namely the original Jebel Ali Hotel and the 5 star Palm Tree Court & Spa. In addition to its 9-hole championship standard golf course, the Resort also comprises an 800 metre private beach, three swimming pools, 14 restaurants and bars, horse riding stables, diving centre and a 80-berth marina for fishing trips, boat charters and seaplane flights. A handpicked selection of Elemis and MD treatments can be enjoyed at The Spa.
