Whether you’re a seasoned traveller or a once a year summer holiday hitter, there’s one place that every single type of holidaymaker is a big fan of – and that’s Dubai. Haven’t visited the City of Gold yet? TLL spoke to our travel gurus at letsgo2 to find out the best place to stay in this holiday hero.
One of Dubai’s most loved hotels is Jumeirah Beach Hotel, and with its striking wave-like design, it’s easy to see why. A firm favourite with beach-loving families, it sits in a prime position on the legendary Jumeirah Beach overlooking the iconic Burj Al Arab. The hotel has recently reopened after a complete refurbishment of its 425 rooms as well as all the restaurants, lobby, beach and swimming pool areas.
The lobby is deliciously light and bright, with brilliant views across to the iconic Burj Al Arab. There’s a beautiful kinetic art installation that’ll mesmerise you, and is designed to evoke feelings of swimming in the water with the sunlight glistening on the surface.
The abstract water theme is continued throughout the guest rooms, with warm white, gold and blue accents used throughout. The rooms themselves are calming and contemporary, with comfortable king size beds, bespoke furniture and soft lighting. All of the rooms have floor to ceiling windows offering views of the Arabian Gulf and the Burj Al Arab.
The main restaurant, The Kitchen Connection, has benefitted from a total makeover. There are now 9 interactive cooking stations for breakfast, lunch and dinner and is also where the must-visit Friday brunch is served, an all-inclusive banquet of seemingly never-ending food and drinks.
Outside, the family pool is the main event The swim-up bar is large, and there are new comfy sunbeds surrounding the pool. The terrace has been refreshed with new paving together with new landscaping. There’s also a brand new KiDS CLUB for the little ones. It’s an amazing play space designed with an underwater theme, with lots of scope for free play alongside soft play, arts, crafts and games – with a fun submarine climbing frame at its heart.

Packed with wave pools and record-breaking slides, it’s the perfect place to spend the day splashing about with the family. Jumeirah Beach Hotel once again reigns supreme on the Dubai hotel scene.
