Situated in Jebel Ali and overlooking a lush green 9-hole golf course, the brand new JA Lake View Hotel boasts 349 rooms and suites, 16 restaurants, three swimming pools and dreamy panoramic views.

The neutral-brown colour palette of the interiors emanates a feeling of warmth and cosiness while the minimalist décor adds just the right amount of splendour.

The rooms are designed with the most up-to-date technology – they even feature a ‘privacy glass’ in the bathrooms by which the screen becomes opaque with a touch of a button. What’s more, the rooms are also equipped with Alexa for instant information delivery, quick music, or, for giggles, just ask her to tell you a joke.

And although tempting, you won’t want to spend too long in your room when there’s so many experiences to try. The indoor-outdoor JA Shooting Club for example, located just ten minutes away from the hotel, is the perfect place to get the adrenaline pumping while the Calm Spa & Salon, with ten treatment rooms, is a tranquil escape-within-an-escape.

The spa is just a short five-minute buggy ride away. Upon arrival, guests are transported into a world of rejuvenation among tropical island vibes with the abundance of the surrounding greenery, nearby beach and other nature (if you’re lucky, you’ll even spot a peacock). You'll be warmly welcomed with lemon infused water and post massage, all vestiges of stress will be forgotten.

For dining, the new Kinara by award-winning chef Vikas Khanna offers authentic Indian cuisine with a modern twist, while buffet restaurant 81 features a rotational menu and live cooking stations serving a range of delicious flavours (perfect for breakfast too). Just outside 81 is the swimming pool, ideal for a morning dip before a hearty brekkie.

After dinner, head to al fresco rooftop lounge Bibé for a live DJ, delicious bites and totally Insta-worthy vistas for a night to remember.

The design-driven property is part of JA Resorts & Hotels, which was first established in 1981.
