Jumeirah Zabeel Saray prepares for the world’s largest fireworks display
Dubai, 11 December 2013: Preparations for New Year’s Eve celebrations are under way at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray as Dubai plans to hold a record-breaking fireworks display on the Palm Jumeirah.
The Ottoman-inspired resort on the West Crescent of the Palm Jumeirah will offer superb venues with undisturbed views of Dubai’s Guinness World Record breaking attempt which will begin with a six-minute display, choreographed across the whole of The Palm Jumeirah and the islands of The World. The record attempt will cover 99.4km of seafront and feature 450,000 fireworks.
In addition, live aerial footage of the display will be broadcast in each hotel venue while all hotel and restaurant guests will be invited onto the beach to enjoy a complimentary glass of bubbles to toast at midnight. The celebrations will conclude with an exclusive after-party in Voda Bar.
Stephan Schupbach, General Manager of Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, said: “Dubai’s record-breaking fireworks display is a magical way to wrap up what has been an extraordinary year for the city.
“We are delighted to be located at the heart of this celebration and will be celebrating in true Jumeirah style, celebrating the end of our third year in operation while welcoming in our fourth year since opening in January 2011.”
From extravagant celebrations at the Gala Dinner to regal offerings in Imperium and a variety of venues in between, each restaurant within the hotel offers an al fresco terrace and unrivalled views of the display on Palm Jumeirah. With restrictions on access to and from Palm Jumeirah, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray has put in place suitable arrangements to ensure smooth arrival and departure for all hotel and restaurant guests arriving at the resort.
Celebrations will continue on New Year’s Day with brunch at Imperium and a selection of festive and revitalising spa packages will be available at Talise Ottoman Spa, offering a refreshing start to the New Year.
