A new luxury beach resort operated by Nikki Beach in Dubai is set to open its door on December 20.
Located in Meraas’ Pearl Jumeira development, Nikki Beach Resort and Spa Dubai will feature 132 keys including 117 rooms and suites, 15 villas and 63 private residences.
In terms of amenities, the 52,000-square-metre property features four pools, private cabanas with plunge pools, and a 450-metre-long beach accessible to guests.
Leisure and relaxation facilities include the Nikki Spa and Tone gym and a tennis court.
The resort will also feature five restaurant and lounges: Café Nikki – an all-day urban bistro; Soul Lounge; Nikki Beach Dubai Restaurant and Beach Club; Nikki Privé – an exclusive lounge; and Key West – a fine dining restaurant offering Floridian, Caribbean and Latin cuisine which will launch later in 2017.
All the rooms, suites and villas have entertainment systems, mood lighting and complimentary wifi.
The beachside villas also offer direct access to the beach, private pools and terraces.
The resort, which will be operated by Nikki Beach Hotels & Resorts in partnership with local developer Meraas, was previously targeting a 2015 launch.
Jack Penrod, founder and owner of Nikki Beach Worldwide said: “Nikki Beach Resort and Spa Dubai is the brand’s flagship Middle Eastern property, and boasts Nikki Beach’s largest footprint in the world.”
Dubai is continuing to see a growth in hotel rooms as the emirate gears up to achieve its tourism vision of welcoming 20 million visitors per year by 2020.
In October, Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) revealed that Dubai has surpassed a milestone of 100,000 hotels rooms.
The figure was reached following the opening of the Westin Dubai Al Habtoor City in August, it said.
Looking ahead, the emirate is expected to have 134,000 hotel rooms by the end of 2018 with an occupancy of approximately 77 per cent, DTCM added.
