Four Seasons to open resort at Jumeirah Beach Road

DUBAI — Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, in collaboration with UAE-based holding company Bright Start, formally announced their plans for a resort property in the heart of Jumeirah Beach.

With a prime beach-front location and convenient access to the main commercial district on Shaikh Zayed Road, Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach is the most highly anticipated addition to Dubai’s luxury hotel scene. Bright Start is developing the new resort property and has appointed H&H Investment and Development as the development manager.

The Resort — which is expected to open by mid 2014 — will welcome individual leisure and business guests as well as meetings and incentives groups, capitalising on its prime location in one of the city’s most elite residential districts and located just two kilometres from Dubai’s central commercial district and key tourism landmarks along Shaikh Zayed Road.

“Being the Middle East’s biggest tourism hub with a highly mature hospitality industry, it was important for us to be in Dubai with a strong product that can serve as one of the company flagships in this region,” said Kathleen Taylor, president and CEO, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.

Talha Al Hashimi, CEO of Bright Start stated: “In line with His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai’s vision for Dubai, we believe our investment in the hospitality sector will further open up opportunities for continued growth and contribute to Dubai’s status as a major luxury tourist destination.”

Shahab Lutfi, CEO of H&H Investment and Development, said: “Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach is a prestigious project and we are delighted to have been appointed by Bright Start to bring to life this Four Seasons resort.”
