Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach is scheduled to open Nov. 1, 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. The lobby is capped by an octagonal dome finished with gold leaf, casting a warm glow on the space’s creamy marble and enhancing the natural light coming through large windows that look across the gardens to the sea.
Balconies off each of the 237 guestsrooms and suites offer panoramic sea views or the city’s skyline, punctuated by the Burj Khalia. Inside, the 9.8-foot-high ceilings are accentuated by full height leather headboards and fully customizable Four Seasons bed. Lavish 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, and business travelers will appreciate the executive size desk. The baths include ceilings leafed in silver to reflect a flattering hue from the Murano glass light fixture, while a mosaic tile wall is the backdrop for a free-standing tub. Thoughtful 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-square-feet presidential suites, each providing its own media room, private gym, and panoramic sea views from the terrace; and the Royal Suite including a spa, gym, butler’s room, and a grand living room with its own piano.
Situated on a natural beachfront, Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach offers an on-property waterspouts center, fire pit, two outdoor swimming pools, and one indoor swimming pool in the spa and fitness complex.
