Glass discovers the Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach

THE Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach incorporates dramatic Moorish architecture, set against a colour-popping botanical garden overlooking the azure Arabian Gulf. The property’s marble arches, decorative columns and patterned furnishings complete the historic aura.

The hotel’s private white-sanded beach is approached via a manicured pathway, and is adorned with neatly aligned turquoise blue sunbeds. The more active guests can take advantage of Seawake’s services to either go jet skiing, take a speedboat charter, or go deep-sea fishing to pick up a catch of the day for dinner.

At the sublime Pearl Spa, those wanting to indulge in some “me time” are offered a wide range of pampering experience, with the treatment menu incorporating many coveted ingredients from across the four corners of the world – from gold leaf and pearl extract to caviar and chocolate. The adjacent indoor pool has gold-leaf mosaics, framed by classically inspired columns, all housed beneath a gigantic glass atrium. While outside, there is a floating champagne bar in the pool with the sun loungers even having integrated service buttons.

In the evening, while the sun is dipping into the sea, dine at the resort’s glossy candle-lit signature seaside restaurant, Sea Fu, where opulent plates of Asian influenced seafood are served up in a never-ending stream, and dishes of sumptuous sushi arrive seemingly in time with the live DJ’s music. Afterwards, head up to Mercury, the most talked-about night-time destinations in Dubai, with its breathtaking views of both the Burj Khalifa on one side and the Arabian Gulf on the other.
