Fifth phase of Broadway Malyan-designed Jumeirah Beach Hotel expansion endorsed
UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has endorsed the fifth phase of Jumeirah Beach Hotel expansion plan, which is set for completion in 2018.
The masterplan vision and concept for the expansion was delivered by global architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan. The project was undertaken on behalf of Jumeirah Group, with the practice’s expert designers in Abu Dhabi and Lisbon, Portugal, partnering closely with the client on the project.
The project will see the addition of a ultra-luxury resort to the existing Jumeirah Beach Hotel, which will comprise 350 hotel rooms with panoramic beachfront views of Burj Al Arab, dedicated new beach offering private beach experiences, recreational marine facilities that encompass spas, health clubs, elevated tennis courts, a world-class sports complex and a range of ocean-facing retail, food and beverage outlets.
The new resort will see extensive expansion of the existing yacht marina doubling its current capacity. It will also offer a variety of vibrant leisure facilities, equipped with state-of-the-art entertainment amenities.
The expansion project is in line with His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid’s vision to strengthen Dubai as a global tourism hub and position the Emirate as the number one tourism destination worldwide. It supports the implementation of Dubai Vision 2020 to attract 20 million tourists by 2020.
Jumeirah Group, a global luxury hotel company and a member of Dubai Holding, currently manages 22 luxury hotels in over 10 countries with plans to add ten new hotels to its Dubai portfolio in the next few years.
Distinguished by its global reach with 16 studios across world centres, unrivalled diversity with 500+ design experts and distinctive client focus with over 75% income from repeat business, Broadway Malyan creates world-class and fully-integrated cities, places and buildings to unlock lasting value and deliver a ‘return on design’.

Jumeirah Beach Resort
In October 1993 WS Atkins began working on the Jumeirah Beach Resort project in Dubai. The scheme includes one of the world’s leading resort hotels, a landmark tower hotel and a state of the art themed water park, all on one 65 acre site on the shores of the Arabian Gulf in Dubai.
The design is intrinsic to the success of the resort, it is different, stylish, unique and makes a strong statement about where Dubai is going and what it aims to be, modern and vibrant.
WS Atkins have offices in over 25 countries and are involved in projects in over 60 countries throughout the world. With International business accounting for 13 % of turnover at £54.4m, and 13% of operating profit at £3.1m.
The group has worked internationally for the past 30 years. Nearly half of our overseas business is in the Asian economies, and a quarter in the Middle East.
For the whole of the development, WS Atkins was the lead consultant providing, design, architecture, engineering and construction management.WS Atkins established a completely self-sufficient and fully resourced design and construction management office on the construction site, 140 strong at its peak.
The Jumeirah Beach Hotel, the first stage of the development, was opened in November 1997. Designed in the shape of a breaking wave, the hotel has won:
“The best International Hotel of the Year Award 1999”
“No. 1 International Leisure attraction of the Year Award 1999”
“Best New Business Hotel of the Year Award 1999”
