Jumeirah Escapes: Top Must See Travel Destinations for 2019
18 Dec 2018

From well-known cities to tranquil island getaways, the new year presents endless opportunities to travel. If you can’t decide where's next to explore, it's time to get off the beaten-path with Jumeirah Escapes.


City, desert or island life?

Can't decide between cosmopolitan city, mezmerising desert or peaceful beach escape? In Abu Dhabi you can combine all three. From islands and mangroves, adventurous theme parks, cultural attractions and world-class dining – there’s something for everyone. Sample the city with Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, stroll along the beach at the newly opened Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort or relax in the mesmerizing desert at Jumeirah Al Wathba Desert Resort and Spa – set to open early 2019. If you're keen to explore, just ask your concierge to create a personalised itinerary. Step back in time and admire archaeological treasures from Saudi Arabia at the Louvre, follow in the footsteps of a local guide at the awe-inspiring Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Or if they don’t take your fancy, maybe a visit to the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship or the adrenaline-fuelled Red Bull Air Race might?


Beach escape 

One of the first states in the Gulf to discover oil, this small island is perhaps best known for hosting the Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix each March. The Jumeirah Royal Saray offers the perfect base if you’re planning to witness this world-class event. Aside from our glittering 5-star hotel, you’ll find watersports, fantastic coffee shops and the city's thriving Bab al-Bahrain bazaar. Spend hours exploring the colorful handwoven fabrics, aromatic spices and beautiful pearls.

Best of both worlds

Year-round sunshine, spectacular attractions and events make Dubai a must if you haven’t already ticked it off your list. Marvel at the world’s most luxurious hotel Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, visit the winding waterways of Madinat Jumeirah or discover the bright city lights from Jumeirah Emirates Towers. Take a trip to old Dubai and explore the art-inspired Jumeirah Creekside Hotel.  Take a trip to Palm Jumeirah and discover the Ottoman empire at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray or take a glimpse of the newly renovated and firm family-favourite Jumeirah Beach Hotel.

Cultural bliss in Mainhattan

Germany’s business centre, dubbed 'Mainhattan' due to its futuristic skyline, is also packed with world-class cultural attractions, top restaurants and events. The Jumeirah Frankfurt concierge team is always happy to help out with up-to-date itineraries but here's a quick snap shot. Foodies will love the famous Green Sauce Festival from 10-18 May and on 7 – 9 June music fans can listen to famous DJs at the Big City Beats World Club Dome in the Commerzbank Arena. Also in June, triathletes will flock to the city to attend the Mainova IRONMAN European Championship Frankfurt. From 26 June – 5 July, anyone staying at Jumeirah Frankfurt will find jazz, pop, reggae and rock just a stone's throw away at the nearby Opera Square Festival. Don’t miss the spectacular Museum Embankment Festival with fireworks at Main River from 23 – 25 August.

Plan a family escape

Travellers from the Gulf love extended stays at the Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa which offers spacious villas complete with private plunge pools and service quarters. This idyllic beachside getaway is located on the southern coast of Kuwait city. Families can bask in the sunshine on the Messilah beach, sample cuisines from around the world in the seven restaurants and kids can let their hair down in the Sinbad Kids' Club. 

The ultimate city break

Discover one of the world's most visited cities and you'll be treated to an abundance of culture, a plethora of foodie hot spots, endless events, exhibitions and a trio of Jumeirah hotels in London's most desirable neighbourhoods.  Fashionistas can flock to the capital for London Fashion Week in February, sports enthusiasts for the Cricket World Cup final in July and culturists can admire the 'Leonardo Da Vinci art exhibition: A Life in Drawing' at The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace and 'Van Gogh and Britain' at Tate, to name a few. Whatever you choose, treat yourself to five-star luxury at either Jumeirah Carlton Tower, Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel or Grosvenor House Suites by Jumeirah Living.

Calling all castaways

If Jumeirah Vittaveli’s powder white beaches, swaying coconut trees and turquoise waters aren’t enough to entice you, maybe the newly revamped Ocean Villas will? Aside from an awe-inspiring view they have been refurbished with 23-metre water slides so you can plunge straight from your room into the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Perched on stilts, the Private Ocean Retreats offer a fabulous vantage point to look for black tip reef sharks and shoals of tropical fish while sipping a piña colada or fresh coconut juice. There’s a private infinity pool with show stopping 180° views and wooden steps that lead straight into the warm waters of the lagoon.

An action packed beach escape

If lounging in the sun with a good book in one hand and a Sangria in the other sounds boring to you then speak to our concierge team in Mallorca who can help liven things up a notch. Nestled amidst the Sóller Valley and the UNESCO World Heritage Tramuntana Mountain range, Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa offers everything from cycling, hiking and helicopter trips to orange grove tours, deep-sea fishing and of course visits to explore the charming town of Port Sóller. Foodies will love the selection of international and Mediterranean cuisine or if you need to recharge your batteries, the award-winning Talise Spa can do just that. You can also choose from not one but three heated pools or try out the gym, if you're that way inclined. Each evening take a front row seat to some of the best sunsets on the island. This hotel is the ultimate escapist enclave for the discerning traveller.

A taste of the orient

Known as the capital city of six or ten dynasties in ancient Chinese history, Nanjing lies on the banks of the Yangtze River. The city offers immaculately preserved imperial sites, leafy boulevards and traditional gardens. With a compelling cultural heritage, this is a city that begs to be explored and the newly opened Jumeirah Nanjing is the perfect base to discover this wonderful city.

Where east meets west

This international metropolis is China’s biggest city and serves as the most influential economic, financial, international trade, and cultural centre in East China. Shanghai is also a popular travel destination for visitors wishing to explore the orient and its blend of east meets west. Base yourself at Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel Shanghai and tick off the top attractions – from the Bund at sunrise, to the delicious street food, markets and famous Nanjing Road, a 5.5km stretch of shops, a fashionista’s paradise.
