Baz Dreisinger – writer, globetrotter and professor who was born and raised in New York City takes a look inside one of Dubai’s newest properties on behalf of Forbes.com – Jumeirah Al Naseem!
Diversity – Al Naseem boasts an overwhelming array of lavish eateries— from Japanese and Italian to Mexican and Arabian—chic bars and lounges, extravagant swimming pools and iconic architecture, including the Burj Al Arab’s sailboat design as well as a Dubai skyline gem, the property has it all!
Grand features – The hotel’s grand entrance features an enthralling stainless steel sculpture of a caravan of camels running on water, by Emirati artist Mattar Bin Lahej. His original work is featured throughout Jumeirah Al Naseem, lending the place a nobility that’s unusual for a big beach resort.
Cuisine – Al Naseem’s F&B options are extensive. The spice-themed menu at Summersalt Beach Club is creative and delicious.
At Al Mandhar Lounge in the lobby I sipped Chai and Karak tea and snacked on French-Moroccan snacks and Arabian spreads (Hummus: a cliché but a must).
The poolside deck Sugarmash boasts an impressive pan-Asian selection, including seafood ceviche with coconut milk, char sui buns and a skewers and slider menu.
Jumeirah Al Naseem’s crown jewel is Rockfish, a beachfront homage to seafood where Mediterranean classics include jumbo oysters, a range of crudo and freshly grilled seafood of all varieties.
Other ‘must try’ restaurants include: Katsuya, The Palmery, Black Tap & Ambar.
Beach Club – Jumeirah Al Naseem’s boasts a charming boutique-resort-within-a-resort, with personalized services and a private pool. On weekends it turns into a chic beach party, with DJs playing until sundown.
Sheesa – All Dubai resorts have sheesha, in dozens of flavors. Jumeirah Al Nasem, though, has Ambar, a sexy lounge in which to smoke it. The trellaced layout creates nooks and crannies from which to sip, smoke and ogle views of the sea and Burj Al Arab.
