Located along the city’s longest private beach, the more than 400 rooms and suites at the sleek luxury property Jumeirah Al Naseem overlook the sparkling Arabian Sea. The fourth and final hotel at Madinat Jumeirah, known as “The Arabian Resort of Dubai,” the words “Al Naseem” mean “sea breeze” in Arabic. Elegantly combining Arabic traditions and culture with the international vibe of modern-day Dubai, the resort creates an extraordinary experience for its guests.

 This experience begins the minute you arrive when greeted by impressive stainless steel sculptures at the entrance and in the lobby created by Emirati artist Mattar Bin Lahej. Al Mandhar Lounge, which translates to “amazing views,” features expansive views of the iconic Burj Al Arab hotel and the Arabian Gulf, and guests can walk right out onto the open terrace to feel the warm sea breezes. Gracious hosts offer a traditional welcome while checking in—small cups of strong Arabic coffee and soft, sweet dates.

 The interior decor and fabrics in the rooms offer comfort in soothing desert and ocean tones, highlighted with subtle Arabic touches. The luxurious bathrooms provide large walk-in showers inspired by Arabic hammams. All rooms have balconies or extended terraces where you can listen to the relaxing sounds of the sea and enjoy captivating views of the beach, gardens, swimming pools, and the iconic sail-shaped Burj Al Arab, a sister property.

The top-notch facilities at the resort feature three pools, including a secluded, adults-only pool. Guests are also able to use facilities at the other properties, which include the award-winning Talise Spa, located near the entrance of Jumeirah Al Qasr. The spa is beautifully set amongst semitropical gardens with frangipani and palm trees, hibiscus flowers and bamboo; arrive by traditional abra boats along the winding waterways to delight in one of their signature treatments, yoga classes or customized health and wellness sessions.

After a day of sightseeing, shopping at the bustling souks in Old Town or relaxing at the pool, don’t miss the brilliant sunset over the Arabian Sea and then watch as Burj Al Arab lights up the night. One of the best places to sip Champagne and watch the sun go down is Ambar, Jumeirah Al Naseem’s chic rooftop bar.

Dinner options vary, to the tune of 11 unique offerings. Seven venues feature an Arabian Explorer theme with dishes inspired by the region and the Mediterranean. For expertly prepared seafood in an eclectic setting, make reservations at Rockfish. Two international choices are the stylish Tuscan Il Borro or Japanese Katsuya. End your evening with specialty cocktails and music at the vibrant Bahri Bar overlooking Burj Al Arab. jumeirah.com
