Dubai is no stranger to luxury. Whether it’s a private beach, a five-star hotel or designer shopping experiences, the Middle-Eastern destination is one that is ever-increasing in its popularity.
But for those seeking a more exclusive visit, it will come as good news that Dubai’s recently opened four-star Ocean View Hotel is not only Dubai’s newest hotel, but the only beach-front hotel to grace the shores of Dubai and the only four-star to be situated on The Walk.
Having just opened its newly carved doors to the public, as recently as December 2012, the hotel has already gained a hugely positive response. Perhaps one reason being that it is the latest venture of the prestigious JA Resorts and Hotels.
Its parent company already owns the well-known Dubai resorts – the Oasis Beach Tower and Jebel Ali Golf Resort and Spa.
Overlooking the Arabian Gulf, the Ocean View Hotel celebrates its surroundings by boasting a total of 342 rooms and suites, most of which feature sea views (hence the befitting name).
With each room featuring all the mod-cons, including a flat-screen television, guests can make the most of the large selection of international satellite channels and avail of free-wifi across the premises.
Holding a prominent and fortunate position on The Walk, a 1.7km-long retail and beachside shopping promenade, the hotel is steps away from the public beach it presides over. It also offers a selection of five different restaurants, meaning there is variety for every guest, as well as a number of bars, with the inclusion of an executive lounge.
While there is plenty to see and do outside, the hotel hasn’t taken any chances when it comes to four-star facilities and features a temperature-controlled free-form swimming pool with its own sea views, as well as a spa and health club.
With its fortunate location just seconds from the beach, guests can access the public beach or hop onto a complimentary shuttle to the nearby five-star private beach at Jebel Ali Golf Resort and Spa. For a day away from the beach, the hotel also offers complimentary shuttle service to all major shopping malls.
“Ocean View Hotel appeals to a range of travellers, whether its families with young children who’ll love the kids club and pool, or couples who prefer the range of different dining concepts,” explained William Harley-Fanning, the general manager of the new hotel.
“Ocean View Hotel has been positioned as a four-star but with five-star service and five-star facilities. We’re located right in the heart of Dubai Marina, so it’s a fantastic base to explore all Dubai’s famous sights and landmarks.”
With fantastic offers set to launch the hotel, William says it has been a positive start to the year.
“Until October 13, we’re offering a free upgrade from bed & breakfast basis to half board to celebrate the opening and the unique range of dining concepts within the grounds. We’re sure that’ll be an influencing factor for a lot of our guests and we hope that they’ll then come back again the following year.”
