       Location

       Jumeirah Beach Hotel is located on Jumeirah Beach Road, adjacent to sister properties
       Burj Al Arab and Madinat Jumeirah, and is a leisurely half hour drive from Dubai
       International Airport.

       History

       The first of Jumeirah’s properties, Jumeirah Beach Hotel officially opened in November
       1997 after three years of work by developers WS Atkins and interior designer Khuan
       Chew, of KCA International. These were the same architects and designers later
       responsible for the creation of Burj Al Arab and Wild Wadi Waterpark.

       Structure and Exterior Design

       The hotel structure is curved both in plan and on elevation, representing a stunning
       breaking wave. The interior theme of the hotel draws upon the four elements of nature:
       Earth, Air, Fire and Water. Each element is represented by a colour scheme that divides
       the hotel into four different levels; soothing blues and greens for water, homely browns
       and reds for earth, relaxing blues and white for air and striking reds and yellows
       depicting the fire of a vibrant sun.

       The theme of nature’s four elements is carried throughout the guest rooms and corridors,
       culminating in the atrium which features a 90m-high wall sculpture, depicting a satellite
       view of the Earth, complete with a galaxy of stars and a moon in orbit, with the United
       Arab Emirates at its centre.
