It isn’t often than a new resort comes along and causes quite such a stir as the Four Seasons Resort Dubai has done, but then this isn’t just any luxury resort. There are far too many adjectives to describe Dubai. Think the world’s highest skyscraper, the artificial archipelago, the largest shopping festival; Dubai is a world within itself. More than ever, the new beach resort has compelled us to have a jump on a plane and go to Dubai immediately.
Jumeirah beach, often called the Beverly Hills of the Middle East is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Dubai. Set on 5.6 hectares (14 acres) of natural beachfront, Four Seasons Resort Dubai is an intimately scaled six-storey structure designed with Arabic and Spanish flair. The building is configured in a widened U shape, with two wings embracing a garden and swimming pools and facing the Arabian Gulf.
The luxury beach resort offers 237 ultra-spacious hotel accommodations, including 49 suites, offering views of the Arabian Gulf on one side and Burj Khalifa and the downtown skyline on the other.
Inside, Arabic design accents highlight Spanish-Mediterranean architecture, and luxuriant touches are everywhere, such as the incredible Seguso glass ballastraded grand staircase. Taking cues from the resort’s shimmering textures and Arabic design accents, the paintings, prints and sculptures as well as unique mixed media installations express Dubai’s traditional past, and its inspiring future.
The luxury resort houses eleven Imperial Suites, each with large living and dining space and two furnished terraces. Three sumptuous suites on the Resort’s uppermost fifth floor include the Presidential Suite and Penthouse Suite, each boasting its own media room, private gym and panoramic sea views from the wrap-around terrace; and the Royal Suite – accessed by its own private elevator – with spa, gym, show kitchen and, at the heart of the space, a grand salon with its own piano, perfect for entertaining.
Glamorous and indulgent, bathrooms feature a mosaic wall as the backdrop for the dramatic free-standing oval tub. Other facilities include a double vanity, glass-walled shower, toilet and bidet. Adjacent to the bathroom is a generous wood-paneled walk-in closet.
Every guest room and suite opens to large terraces furnished with a daybed and dining table and lets you take in panoramic views of the sea and the city’s glittering skyline. Ultra-spacious and with lofty ceilings, the guest rooms start at 70 square meters including the balcony – positioning them among the largest in Dubai.
Providing an ideal set-up for families traveling to Dubai, most guest rooms are entered through a shared vestibule – a recessed area in the hallway where two entry doors are set back behind an additional door. This additional door may be closed, allowing the two guest rooms to be connected.This 5-star hotel is home to ten of the best Dubai restaurants and lounges, including the Suq restaurant featuring three open kitchens, a private dining room and an outdoor poolside terrace. At Sea Fu, fresh seafood with Mediterranean and Asian influences is served, while guests are invited to partake in coffee and cocktails, light fare and traditional afternoon tea at the Shai Salon. Located on the sixth-floor rooftop, the Mercury Lounge Mercury Lounge is the giant glass sphere surrounded by intimate seating pods and private lounges and towers with alcove seating, where guests can enjoy prime vodka and Champagne selections and shisha cocktails.
A beautiful gold-leaf mosaic tiled indoor pool is at the heart of the complex. Additionally, two outdoor pools are set amid lush gardens by the sea and surrounded by Day Villas, including four ‘supercabanas’ complete with private terrace, mini bar, private bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers.
The beach resort also includes the city’s most lavish ‘The Pearl Spa’. Facilities encompass ten treatment rooms including the Royal Spa Suite – all boasting natural light and discreet outdoor space – a deluxe aqua-thermal experience, full men’s and women’s changing and relaxation areas, juice bar, Ever En Vogue Coiffure, men’s grooming lounge, and more.
If you are planning to get married soon, Four Seasons Resort Dubai offers couples creative planning assistance, attention to every detail on their big day, and honeymoon options to start life together in style.

The crème de la crème of the luxury resort is however, yet to come. Four Seasons Resort at Jumeirah Beach hints that it will soon unveil a very special freestanding villa hidden in the gardens of the resort that will rival the very best accommodations in the Middle East.
