Fodor's Expert Review Four Seasons Jumeirah Beach
Jumeirah Beach Rd., Jumeirah 2, Dubai, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
At 750 square feet, these are likely the biggest standard rooms in the city; in fact everything about this hotel is big: big pools, big beach, and big smiles. Despite its size, the feel is personal and boutique. The exterior is modern Moorish, and these Arabic nuances continue throughout the public spaces, with marble, delicate fretwork, archways, and geometric designs. Rooms are simpler, with soft furnishings in seaside tones and bathrooms with glittering mosaic tiles and deep soaking tubs. Kids have water sports available and a very good on-site kids' club. While they are entertained, parents can enjoy the Pearl Spa and its aquathermal treatments. On-site dining is excellent, with Fodor's favorite Coya, two Jean Georges restaurants, Nusr-Et (home of "Salt Bae"), and a picturesque seaside bar and lounge (Sea Fu).
- great for families but plenty of adult-only areas to escape children
- excellent on-site dining
- beach area not as nice as Al Sufouh resort beaches
- you'll need a taxi to get anywhere
