Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts, the global luxury hospitality company and member of Dubai Holding, is continuing to foster and build new relationships in key source markets, including India. A key strategic partner to the UAE, India is a key source market for Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts, especially across Dubai, London and the Asia Pacific.
With India accounting for 12 per cent of visitor arrivals to Dubai in H1 2022 (858,000) – an increase of over 109 per cent YoY – Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts hosted events in Mumbai and Delhi to share key updates on its ongoing investment in guest experience and product enhancements at its Dubai properties, as well as key new resorts opened in popular new markets with Indian audiences, including the Maldives and Bali.
Key enhancements at Jumeirah properties in Dubai include the current renovation of the beachfront at Jumeirah Beach Hotel, designed to deliver a unique lifestyle destination in Dubai with access to the very best leisure, health, and wellness facilities, and the full refurbishment of its ultra-exclusive Malakiya Villas at Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf to impress the most discerning guests.
Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts also shared information about the upcoming Jumeirah Marsa Al Arab, Dubai, due to open in late 2023. This new property will lead a new generation of Jumeirah Group’s ultra-luxury portfolio. The new property designed as a futuristic superyacht will complete Jumeirah’s oceanic trilogy, which includes the wave-shaped Jumeirah Beach Hotel and sailboat-inspired Burj Al Arab Jumeirah.
Internationally, Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts has also continued to expand its offering with new openings in other locations popular with Indian travellers, including the reopening of The Carlton Tower Jumeirah in London last year, following the most extensive makeover in its history. The group also opened its new, all-villa Jumeirah Maldives Olhahali Island resort in October 2021, marking its entry into another top location for Indian tourists.
The luxury hospitality leader continued its path of international expansion in 2022, with new resorts opened in Bali and Muscat earlier this year. Further new openings in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia are expected to launch in the coming months.
