Jumeirah Al Naseem, the new property that is part of the Madinat Jumeirah expansion, will feature at least nine new restaurants and bars managed by Jumeirah Restaurant Group Dubai, the resort's general manager Margaret Paul told Caterer Middle East.
Commenting on the plan, Paul said: “We already have an extensive number of restaurants and bars in Madinat Jumeirah so I think that will complement what we have already.
“We will be operating nine restaurants and bars within the hotel, and there will also be some space for external companies. So quite an exciting development.”
Jumeirah Al Naseem is due to open in 2016 and will add 430 new rooms to the resort’s inventory.
When it launches, the AED 2.5billion ($680mn) expansion will feature a villa complex, restaurants, a commercial centre featuring retail stores and an open walking area.
