Formed in 1997, Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts wasted no time in becoming one of the most prestigious hospitality companies in the world.
Starting as a hotel chain, the company focused predominantly on Dubai during its early development. However, in recent years it has made enormous strides overseas. By 2011, Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts operated three locations in London – Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel, Jumeirah Carlton Tower and the Grosvenor House Suites – along with its growing UAE portfolio. In the same year, the company opened its first German location as part of the renowned Palais Quartier development.
Today, the wider Jumeirah Group is a global luxury hotel company overseeing a world-class 6,500-key portfolio across 26 properties in the Middle East, Asia and Europe. Among these are the iconic flagship hotel, Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, the incredible island paradise of Olhahali Island in the Maldives and numerous lavish Arabian palaces across Dubai’s Madinat Jumeirah.
From London’s Knightsbridge to the futuristic cities of the Middle East, Jumeirah’s properties have a global reputation for service excellence and exceptional experiences.
Beyond its vast international real-estate and resort portfolio, the Jumeirah Group offers destination dining experiences that combine the most authentic and diverse cuisines with spectacular settings.
The company’s restaurants include the award-winning homegrown concepts Sal, KAYTO, Shimmers, Al Mare, Pierchic and French Riviera. All are widely respected by food critics and patrons alike, with a sky-high reputation for culinary excellence. Ten of the Jumeirah Group’s restaurants feature in the Gault&Millau UAE 2022 guide while three — Shang High, L’Olivo and Al Muntaha – have Michelin stars.
