Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach

DUBAI—The new Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach located here will open November 2014.

Envisioned by architects WATG, the resort’s contemporary style is by San Francisco-based interior designers BAMO. Arabic accents highlight Spanish-Mediterranean architecture, with colors and textures influenced by the seaside lifestyle of this 14-acre resort. An octagonal dome finished with gold leaf contrasts the space’s marble and enhances the natural light, which comes through the windows of the 33-ft. high lobby.  

Balconies off each of the 237 guestrooms and suites offer panoramic views of the city’s skyline. Inside, full-height leather headboards accentuate 9.8-ft. high ceilings. Details include marble flooring in the foyer, bath and dressing room, which includes a wood-paneled, walk-in closet. Comfortable seating includes an L-shaped sofa plus a bench at the foot of the bed.

The baths include ceilings leafed in silver to reflect a hue from the Murano glass light fixture, while a mosaic tile wall is the backdrop for a freestanding tub. Design elements include recessed entries to pairs of rooms behind a second door to the hallway.

Three suites on the resort’s uppermost fifth floor include the two 5,900-sq.-ft. Presidential Suites, each offering its own media room, private gym and sea views from the terrace; and the Royal Suite, including a spa, gym, butler’s room and grand living room with its own piano.

Situated on natural beachfront, Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach features an on-property watersports center. Within the resort’s gardens are two outdoor, free-form swimming pools, in addition to the indoor pool in the spa and fitness complex.
