On 9 September, Madinat Jumeirah will host a special full moon yoga session on the beach, a renowned venue in the city that has grown from strength to strength. The event has attracted an average of 150 yoga enthusiasts each month for the past eight years.
From 1 October, guests can enjoy a brand new Mina A’Salam experience once the refurbishment of the 292 rooms and suites has been completed. The new modern look offers a traditional twist, with a lighter, brighter and more spacious feel.
Speaking of Madinat Jumeirah’s 10-year achievement, Margaret Paul, Resort General Manager, said: “We are proud that Madinat Jumeirah has mirrored the success story of Dubai to create a multi-award winning resort attracting guests from all over the world. Our tenth anniversary celebrates the history and culture of Arabia while demonstrating exciting new beginnings.”
This year will also see an enhancement of Madinat Jumeirah’s renowned dining and nightlife scene. This started with the launch of its authentic Mexican restaurant Tortuga earlier this year and will be followed by a refurbished Pierchic set to offer an exciting and new award-winning seafood dining experience, as well as an exciting new smokehouse restaurant that is planned for Souk Madinat Jumeirah. Over 40 food and beverage outlets are dotted throughout the resort and offer world-class dining options, each within a unique setting.

Expected to open in 2016, this new hotel will offer a fusion of contemporary Dubai with Arabian hospitality and European design. These enhancements symbolise the continued optimism for future opportunities, in line with the announcement of Dubai as Expo 2020 host, and the city’s vision of attracting 20 million visitors by 2020.
