Jumeirah to get two new hotels next month


The Palace of Royal Mirage, with 250 suites and deluxe rooms, will be joined in December 2002 by two new properties - the Arabian Court, and the Residence and Spa. All three hotels rest on a kilometre of private coastline in Jumeirah, Dubai.

The Arabian Court takes a step back in time and has been designed as an ancient dwelling disguised behind an oasis.

Crafted in the spirit of the orient with Arabian architecture, the 162 guest rooms and 10 suites are located within a landscape of fountains, walk-ways and gardens, each overlooking the sea from their private balcony or terrace.

A team will pamper guests of the Residence and Spa in three Royal Villas, 18 suites and 32 deluxe rooms. Designed and created with the finest attention to detail, each suite and deluxe room is sea facing and the villas house a private garden and swimming pool.

The Health and Beauty Institute is reminiscent of the buildings of traditional Arabia with domes, carved arches and intricate design.

Traditional massage, steam baths, whirlpools and Jacuzzi can be enjoyed within the Oriental Hammam.

The Spa will be the first run by Givenchy in the Middle East with 12 private treatment rooms, private consultation, and a Givenchy Boutique.

"We believe in providing an element of theatrical drama for our visitors and therefore it is the enthusiastic response to the Royal Mirage that bring guests back," says general manager, Olivier Louis.
