Wasl Properties says to build Dubai Mandarin Oriental
By Louise Oakley

Sunday, 8 June 2014 2:03 PM

Wasl Properties has revealed that it is set to build the first Mandarin Oriental hotel in Dubai, which would mark the luxury Asian hotel operator’s UAE debut.

Mandarin Oriental had previously announced a hotel on Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi, but development of this was put on hold in 2012.

In an interview with sister title Construction Week, Wasl Properties, which has a string of hospitality projects on its books, said that the 235-key Dubai hotel will be built on a site at Jumeirah Beach Road. Enabling works on the site are already around 80 percent complete and a tender for the main contract to build the property is likely to be floated towards the end of the year.

When asked about its move into Dubai, a spokesman for Mandarin Oriental told HotelierMiddleEast.com it "does not comment on market rumours".

Mandarin Oriental to open Dubai resort in 2017

Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has confirmed that it will manage a luxury resort in Dubai’s Jumeirah Beach area when it opens in 2017, as originally reported by Hotelier Middle East earlier this year.

The resort, which is currently under development and will mark the group's debut in the Middle East, will feature 200 rooms and suites and 12 over-water villas accessible via a private beach, and with its own infinity pool.

The project is owned by Dubai Real Estate Corporation and is being developed by Wasl Hospitality, with Jeffrey Wilkes appointed as the interior designer.

All rooms, villas and suites will feature design elements influenced by the local culture, and will incorporate guest-centred technology and entertainment systems.

Mandarin Oriental, Dubai will include nine restaurants and bars, including a signature pier-top restaurant with docking facilities for private yachts.

Other food and beverage concepts will include a poolside restaurant, two bars including one on the pier, a lobby lounge, and a Mandarin Oriental Cake Shop. The resort will also offer several function rooms, including a 525 square metre ballroom which opens up onto a landscaped beachfront terrace.

A 2,800 square metre all inclusive spa will feature 12 treatment rooms, including three couples’ suites, and a private VIP suite. Additionally, a beach club will provide a range of water sports activities.

Mandarin Oriental group chief executive Edouard Ettedgui said: “We are delighted to bring Mandarin Oriental’s renowned levels of hospitality to Dubai, one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, and we look forward to creating a luxurious urban resort on the desirable location of Jumeirah Beach. The exclusive and creative design and all-encompassing luxury facilities of Mandarin Oriental, Dubai, underpinned by our legendary award-winning service, will provide an outstanding destination for future guests.”

Wasl Asset Management Group CEO Hesham Abdullah Al Qassim added: “We are pleased to be partnering with Mandarin Oriental to create a hotel that will set new standards in terms of elegance and sophistication in Dubai.

"It is vital that the hospitality market in Dubai grows in the build up to Expo 2020 and Wasl is delighted to add Mandarin Oriental, Dubai to its ever increasing portfolio of hospitality projects across the city.”

When it opens, Mandarin Oriental, Dubai will join other luxury hotels and resorts on Jumeirah Beach, including the Four Seasons Dubai, which is due to open by the end of the year, Madinat Jumeirah, which is currently undergoing an AED2.5 billion ($680 million) expansion, and the iconic Burj Al Arab.

Ealier plans had ''maldives style'' sea chalets and a pier, breaking the actual public beach in 2, hope they changed this in the new plans. seems much more tasteful and modern without it.

Dubai’s Mandarin Oriental to open at the start of 2019



Dubai’s Mandarin Oriental Jumeira is soon to add yet more swish accommodation and fine dining to Jumeirah’s coastline, with the rapidly progressing property set to open at the beginning of 2019.

And among its eight restaurants and bars will be Tasca, the first Middle Eastern restaurant from renowned Portuguese chef José Avillez, whose Lisbon eatery Belcanto currently holds two Michelin stars.

Elsewhere within the property will be a Japanese warayaki-style steakhouse, plus a Mediterranean restaurant positioned at the end of a pier, which guests will have the option to moor their yachts (oh come on, we’ve all got one…) straight up at.



A big opening party is planned to launch the resort in 2019, with rumoured celebrity fans expected to be in attendance – no doubt they’ll be staying in one of the Oriental’s eight over-the-water villas, which will be the first along Jumeirah’s coastline and only the second in the city.

Designed with a “Californian aesthetic”, expect wooden flooring, warm colours reflecting the western state and an understated, chic feel.

Other features of the hotel include the Mandarin Oriental Spa, spread over 2,000 sq m and featured a dedicated hammam-style suite, plus a grand ballroom that opens out on to the beach.

I don't understand these designs. The Persian Gulf is already enclosed and rather shallow so Dubai does not get waves. Why would they build outwards further reducing the water flow and making the beaches even more dead? This is a problem all over Dubai anyways with constant construction (Pearl, the Palm, Bluewaters). The beaches really aren't much fun here.
