A BusinessClass.com Verified Hotel
The Jeffrey Wilkes-designed Mandarin Oriental Jumeira, Dubai lends a sense of place to its seaside location. Taking inspiration from Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, and Asian influences, the resort is bright and airy by day, intriguing and romantic by night, with serene pools leading to secret gardens and walkways to the pearly white beach. The hotel’s 178 rooms and 78 suites are spacious, the beautiful villas gilding the mix. Designed with muted tones and vibrant accents of orange, blue and gold against the ocean backdrop provided by the floor-to-ceiling windows. This understated elegance is enhanced by Moroccan rugs, Lebanese mother-of-pearl, wooded floors, textures, and fabrics from around the world. All water-facing rooms have balconies.
