The gastronomic dining options at the Four Seasons Resort Jumeirah Beach Dubai:

Service:

During our stay, we ate breakfast and lunch the Souq, evening cocktails at Henrick’s and after dinner drinks at the rooftop lounge Mercury Lounge, and found the food and service at all locations to be exceptional. The service is perfectly timed and courteous, but the staff are warm and genuine too, delivering classic French hospitality. Our experience while checking in and out was also very efficient to and so was the interaction with the knowledgeable and helpful award winning “Golden Keys” concierge team, which are no doubt the best in Dubai. We used the concierge service extensively, from chauffeur-driven transportation, recommendations for the best restaurants, to dune bashing.

By the poolside, staff glide around with apparently no other job than to chat with you, top up your mineral water or bring over a mango smoothie.

Kids Club: Truculent children are a doddle. For a start, they are treated as individual guests rather than spare wheels, and greeted with welcome packs and furry camels on their beds. The Kids For All Seasons club has craft activities, tennis tournaments and treasure hunts, and stays open late twice a week so parents can have a date night. For a private film party, DVDs, popcorn and personalised bathrobes can be magicked to your room. And the mini spa menu allows for mother-and-daughter bonding over the nail polish.

What We Love:

  • The facilities are spectacular, from lushly landscaped lagoon pool fringed with private cabanas to the sublime spa and pristine beach.
  • The staff is among the best trained in Dubai, and service is friendly, attentive and flawless.
  • The standard rooms are among the largest in Dubai at 70 sqm and have private terraces with great views of downtown Dubai, including the spectacular sunsets.
  • The rooftop lounge restaurant Tomo, with its jaw dropping panoramic views, is a must visit.
  • Location – The hotel is a quick 20 minute ride from the Dubai International Airport and close to some of Dubai’s main business, shopping and cultural districts. Also the upscale Bulgari Marina is next door.

Best Time to Visit:

Although Dubai has become a year round global playground and leisure destination, the best time to visit is during the cooler autumn, winter and spring seasons of October thru March. Summers can get really hot, although if you remain indoors or in the myriad malls during the day, it is relatively pleasant in the evenings.
