Temperatures are rising. Cool down!

There’s no denying it, temperatures in Dubai are on the rise again and the days are getting hotter. Now is the perfect time to extend the cool winter climate a little longer by popping into our Leisure Deck Bar on the 11th floor, high above the Jumeirah Lakes Towers.

To make it easier for you to enjoy the breezy evenings, we’ve introduced a special Happy Hour promotion:

We’re very pleased to announce that we have been named as a winner in the 2015 Travelers’ Choice® awards, putting us firmly amongst the top 25% of hotels in the United Arab Emirates and the Middle East.

In the 13th year of the awards, the world’s most outstanding properties were identified in the categories of Top Hotels, Bargain, B&Bs and Inns, Family, Luxury, Romance, and Small Hotels.

We are no stranger to winning Travelers’ Choice® awards having bagged awards in 2012, 2013, and 2014 already.

Travelers’ Choice award winners were determined based on the reviews and opinions of millions of TripAdvisor travelers around the globe.

Our General Manager, Bruno Guilloux, had this to say about the 2015 award:

“We are very pleased to have received this award. This recognition is the result of continuous hard work and dedication from highly committed colleagues. I am delighted to share this success with all of them. As an independently managed and family-owned hotel, we’re very proud to have made it into this list again and would like to say a big thank you to everybody who reviewed us on TripAdvisor.”

Tram

In 2014, our guests and visitors will be able to enjoy better public transport options for their journeys through Dubai! The Dubai Tram project is nearing completion and it’ll only be a short walk from the Bonnington to the nearest tram station. The tram links up with the Metro system at 2 stations, namely Dubai Marina and Jumeirah Lakes Towers via footbridges to facilitate the mobility and exchange of passengers between the two transit modes. The Tram will also be linked with the Monorail of The Palm Jumeirah at the entrance of the Palm from Al Sufouh Road.
