Arabic experience A new luxury resort being developed by Dubai-based Jumeirah International will further enhance the emirate's reputation as a major tourist destination in the Gulf.

Madinat Jumeirah will offer the ultimate Arabian experience against the setting of a highly luxurious, world-class, multi-facility resort, a Jumeirah International spokesperson said.

Located adjacent to Burj Al Arab and Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Madinat Jumeirah will benefit from the existing global recognition of three of Dubai's flagship hotels.

The resort will encompass and promote the rich heritage and traditions of Arabia, allowing the visitors and guests to experience the history of the Arabic culture within an exclusive environment.

It will offer a number of different styles of accommodation, featuring authentic architecture reflecting the heritage and culture of Dubai and the Arabian Peninsula.

The resort will feature a main hotel designed in the style of a Summer Palace surrounded by villas set in lush, landscaped gardens. It will also feature a waterway flowing through the entire area allowing guests to access various facilities on the resort using traditional Abras.

The resort will also include what is billed as one of the largest and most versatile Spa in the region, 20 restaurants and entertainment outlets, and a conference and convention centre offering total versatility for the entire range of meeting and convention requirements.

A souk and cultural village will complete the experience for guests, the spokesperson said.
