Five-star hotel Jumeirah Marsa Al Arab will open in Dubai in 2024 complete with a 3,500sq m spa and wellness facility
The hotel will provide Jumeirah's most comprehensive wellness offering yet says Niamh O’Connell, Jumeirah’s vice president of wellbeing
The 13-treatment-room spa will be available to both guests and locals
The location will also be the first location to debut the operator's new wellness-centric approach to the customer journey
Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts has announced plans to unveil its biggest property and most impressive wellness facility to date in 2024 with the launch of Jumeirah Marsa al Arab.

Commanding a prime location on the Dubai peninsula, adjacent to the group’s iconic Burj Al Arab location, the new ultra-luxury five-star hotel will feature a large 3,500sq m spa spread over three floors – one of which will be dedicated to women.

“Jumeirah Marsa Al Arab will feature our most significant wellbeing offering so far, which will be very much ingrained in all aspects of the property from spa through to F&B,” said Niamh O’Connell, Jumeirah’s vice president of wellbeing, in an exclusive interview with Spa Business.

The upcoming spa will be bathed in natural light thanks to the inclusion of floor-to-ceiling windows throughout, meanwhile, 13 treatment rooms will all extend to a private terrace equipped with loungers and offering panoramic views of the Arabian Gulf.

Wellness facilities will include a fitness studio, a hammam, a sauna, a steam bath, a barbershop and a salon, as well as five private swimming pools.

Talise, Jumeirah’s in-house spa concept, currently exists in 14 of its properties along with a handful of other non-Talise facilities. While there’s a ‘golden thread’ of Middle Eastern influence that runs through the spas, they’re all adapted to their particular location and clientele.

Going forward, O’Connell and her team are looking to develop Jumeirah’s emphasis on wellness throughout its customer journey.

“We don’t want to see wellbeing isolated to spas – it’s going to be part of the overarching Jumeirah experience with different touch points throughout all hotels,” she explained.

“We think the family market is hugely underserved, so we’re looking at how we create offers that parents and children actually want. Families face enormous time pressures these days, so how do we create an environment where they can come together, switch off from social media and enjoy healthy activities? It may be that only one parent visits the spa, but how can we ensure that the whole family can benefit from a wellness experience while they stay with us?”

Women’s wellness, in particular perimenopause and menopause, and the male equivalent ‘andropause’, will also be brought more to the fore as well as more medical offers focused on longevity, with Jumeirah currently in ‘advanced talks’ with two potential medical providers.

More details about Jumeirah Marsa Al Arab
Designed by architect Shaun Killa of Killa Design, the nautical-inspired Jumeirah Marsa Al Arab will feature 303 rooms, 84 suites and 82 serviced residences all offering sweeping panoramic views over the Arabian Gulf.

Additional leisure facilities will include 10 dining concepts, nine bars, two exclusive beaches and a superyacht club.

Jumeirah is a subsidiary of Dubai Holding, the investment portfolio of the emirate’s ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid. It owns 27 properties, 12 are in Dubai and others are nearby in Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Saudi Arabia.

As part of its Mission 2030 strategy, Jumeirah plans to double its hotel portfolio by 2030.

Plans include upweighting its presence in Europe and exploring new opportunities in the US.

The group will also look to capitalise on the strong growth potential of the Asia Pacific market to extend its current reach beyond its properties in China, Bali and the Maldives.
