It’s been in construction for some time, but now the final chapter in the Madinat Jumeirah hotel complex is finally set to open.

Jumeirah Al Naseem is scheduled to open its doors on December 1, and with it will come 11 new restaurants and watering holes, and even a turtle sanctuary.

Once it’s open, the Jumeirah hotel hub will span a whopping two kilometres along the oceanfront of Al Sufouh.

The hotel itself has a rather nautical theme – the name means sea breeze in Arabic, the decor is inspired by Dubai’s pearl diving history, and many of the 430 rooms have a water view.

The Al Naseem also comes complete with an adult-only pool, a 150-square-metre lagoon for rehabilitating endangered turtles, and the aforementioned eateries.

Among them will be New York burger-and-milkshake institution Black Tap, along with Japanese restaurant Katsuya (which also has a branch coming to Riverland too), and a buffet restaurant named The Palmery.

There will also be the first international concept from Il Borro in Tuscany (called Il Borro Tuscan Bistro) and a restaurant by Tasha’s in Galleria Mall, called Flamingos by Tasha’s.

For watching the sun set with friends, there’s two spots that should suit – the Al Manhar Lounge, which promises ocean views, and a rooftop drinking spot called Ambar.

As if that wasn’t enough choice, there’s also seafood at Rockfish, beach club vibes at Summersalt and a laid-back bar called Sugarmash.

What about the rooms themselves? Well, they’ll come with walk-in rain showers, huge windows and air-conditioned outdoor terraces, and opening rates will start from Dhs1,200 a night.

Guests will also get access to Wild Wadi Water Park, and from next year they’ll be able to participate in turtle-feeding sessions at the lagoon. Turtles will be housed there until they’re fit to be returned to their native ocean.
