Jumeirah Group to continue international expansion in 2018

Jumeirah Group has planned widespread expansion plans for 2018 which will see the brand enter three new markets and open further properties in the UAE and China.

Jumeirah’s expansion plans, some of which have already been announced, will feature at least five new luxury hotel openings in addition to the refurbishment and re-opening of Jumeirah Beach Hotelahead of its 21 st birthday in late 2018.

New properties include: Jumeirah Royal Saray, Bahrain, Jumeirah Sa’adiyat Island, Abu Dhabi, Jumeirah Bali, Indonesia, Jumeirah Nanjing, China and Jumeirah Muscat Bay, Oman.

Dubai Holding and Sevens Holding SPC announced in November 2017 the signing of a management agreement for Jumeirah Group to operate a luxury hotel in Bahrain. The 167-key hotel, which will be called Jumeirah Royal Saray – Bahrain, is scheduled to open February 27, 2018.

The news followed Jumeirah Group reporting an overall 5% increase in the number of room nights and 6% increase in room revenues in 2017 compared to the same period last year. The hotel group also maintained stable year on year occupancy matching the same period in 2016. The GCC region accounted for 21% of the overall occupancy throughout the year.
