A beachfront beauty that is home to one of the highest infinity pools in the world, The Address Hotels’ first seaside property is the most exciting new addition to the UAE’s buzzing hotel scene.
If you’ve taken a walk along JBR recently, there’s a good chance your eye has fallen upon an intriguing frame-shaped structure standing proud among its glistening skyscraper neighbours. The ninth addition to The Address Hotels Dubai portfolio, The Address Beach Resort plumps for an eclectic mix of European elegance and Arabesque styling.
Expect plenty of swanky grey marble, dove-grey armchairs and lavish chandeliers – and that’s just the lobby. Rooms range from the Deluxe Marina View to the Executive Sea View Suite with balcony, decorated in shades of white, greige and taupe, with no detail overlooked. A long soak in the deep bathtub is the perfect way to while away an evening, while supremely comfortable beds come kitted out with high-thread-count linen.
There are five restaurants and bars to choose from, but head straight for Li Brasil for a fusion menu of Lebanese and Brazilian flavours that is a treat for the tastebuds. Highlights include loaded hummus with crumbled feta and sliced shallot, hearty Brazilian chicken broth and succulent chicken and beef skewers that delight the tongue while offering little to trouble the teeth. For something a little lighter, The Beach Grill offers the best of sunny, beachside dining, whipping up everything from small snacks and juicy burgers to an impressive selection of healthy salad bowls for those on a new year detox. The beach club is where the hotel really shines, with no fewer than three glistening pools (one being family-friendly and another adults only) overlooking a 100m-long beach strip of pure white sand. The talk of the town, however, is its 77th-floor pool, which opens this month and is a candidate for a Guinness World Record for highest infinity pool, boasting views over Bluewaters and Palm Jumeirah.
With exceptional service, delectable food and state-of-the-art facilities The Address Beach Resort is the most exciting addition to the city’s hotel scene. To book, visit Addresshotels.com/en/resorts/address-beach-resort/
