Awards, birthdays, and guest comments!

The Bonnington & teams

A little while ago, our partners from came to see us and brought us a nice surprise: A special plaque of appreciation for our dedication and longstanding partnership.

We’re very proud to have had a stellar year with and would like to say a big “Thank you!” to all our guests and, of course, our teams who look after them.

If you’re in Dubai this weekend, do join us to congratulate our friends from McGettigan’s JLT on their 5th birthday! Yes, it’s really only been five years that we opened McGettigan’s Pub in our hotel, but what a journey it has been! These days, you can find McGettigan’s in several locations in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Ireland, Singapore, New York, and – shortly – also in London.

The next three days, though, are all about the JLT pub, where everything started. McGettigan’s has put together a fabulous lineup of offers and events – check them out here.

During the past weeks, we’ve also received more guest comments via our Golden Book in the hotel lobby. Here are a few, but you can find more on our dedicated Pinterest board here.

As always, you can find out more on our homepage! Have you seen our YouTube channel already?

October’s here! So are our offers!

Good bye September! Hello October! We’re eagerly awaiting the cooler autumn and winter temperatures in Dubai!

Our local community, Jumeirah Lakes Towers, will play host to some great events over the coming weeks and we’ll showcase them in an upcoming blog post. Right now, we thought, we’d bring you up-to-date with our October offers.

Healey’s Bar and Terrace remains the place to be seen in JLT, so why not pop in for a masterly mixed cocktail, a fine glass of wine, some great snacks, or a shisha on the terrace? Need an additional excuse? How about our cocktail of the month?




If cocktails aren’t your thing, how about a mocktail? It’s great at any time of the day or when you’re relaxing after a gym or swimming session. Ascend to our Leisure Deck, sit back, enjoy the view, and take a healthy sip:




In our Author’s Lounge things aren’t just about tea, coffee, and great pastries! In October, you can also board a Belgian Beer Flight and try three great Belgian beers for a very special price!

There’s a new terrace in #JLT


You have experienced the Cavendish taste indoors, now experience it outdoors on the newly opened Cavendish Terrace. Located under the shade of the impressive Bonnington Tower and set amongst lush greenery and water features, you can now lunch, brunch, or dine al fresco at the Cavendish.

Enjoy breakfast in the sun, a quick lunch with colleagues outdoors, or a romantic dinner by candlelight, all while experiencing the same great food and service you have come to expect from the Cavendish, but with added fresh air and views of the bustling Almas Tower neighbourhood in JLT.

Why not pop in this month & try the Cavendish dessert of the month?

Earth Hour and a new #guestcommentswednesday

It’s Wednesday, so we’ll bring you the latest #GuestCommentsWednesday , but also some news of upcoming events at the Bonnington in JLT.

As always at the end of March, #EarthHour is happening this coming Saturday from 8.30 – 9.30 p.m. Dubai time. We’ve been part of it since we first opened our doors and, over the years, have made great inroads into lowering our energy consumption and carbon footprint. The Bonnington was one of the first hotels in new Dubai with solar panels on its roof and LED lighting and motion sensor controls were also part of our setup for years.

Still, there’s also a fun side to Earth Hour and, for us, that means the annual candlelight dinner at the Cavendish Restaurant:


Even more traditional than Earth Hour is the Dubai World Cup, the world’s richest horse racing event, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

As always, we’ll be telecasting it live in our Healey’s Bar & Terrace and this year, we’re throwing in a free welcome drink:
