Developer wasl Asset Management Group has reached a major milestone at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel - Jumeira Beach by completing three-quarters of the construction work.
The company said in a statement that construction of the hotel is on target for completion in the fourth quarter of 2018.
It added that the next phase of construction encompasses internal dimensions work on the guestrooms, corridors, public areas and F&B outlets, as well as the external stone façade work.
Once complete, the hotel will enhance Dubai’s Jumeirah beachfront with 256 rooms, six F&B outlets, a gym and 2,800-square-metre spa, a dedicated beach club, and infinity pools surrounded by landscaped gardens.
Hesham Al Qassim, CEO of wasl Asset Management Group, said: “We are proud to be working with the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group to bring its signature Far East-inspired luxury to Dubai.
"With exceptional facilities and design elements that fuse local Arabic culture and Asian heritage, the Mandarin Oriental Hotel - Jumeira Beach will make an exciting premium addition to Dubai’s hospitality offering, supporting our leadership’s vision for sustainable growth in the tourism sector.”
The hotel will house six restaurants, including a signature pier-top dining destination with dedicated docking facilities for guests arriving by private yacht.
The Mandarin Oriental Hotel - Jumeira Beach was launched as Dubai’s first luxury Mandarin Oriental hotel. It was soon joined by the Mandarin Oriental Hotel - Sheikh Zayed Road, which was launched by wasl in 2017 and is due for completion in November 2020.
