Rixos Premium Dubai JBR - An Oasis of Luxury in the Heart of the City
Updated: Feb 9
Rixos is located on one of Dubai's main tourist stripes, The Walk, in JBR. Jumeirah Beach Residence – to give it its full name – lies within Dubai Marina and lines one of the most popular stretches of sand in Dubai, adorned with multiple attractions, including indoor and outdoor cinemas, an inflatable water park and a giant ‘flying’ teacup that rotates in the sky, accommodating parties of eight for drinks and snacks. If you’re in the market for a sun, sea and sand holiday, this is the location for you.
The hotel attracts a young, affluent crowd. This stunning resort offers its guests the ultimate in luxury, comfort, and style. From the moment you step into the spacious and elegant lobby, you are transported into a world of sophistication and indulgence.
Built around an avenue of fashion stores and restaurants, the lobby is more like a mall. Not visible at first, the check-in desk is tucked around a corner towards the end of the avenue, opposite the entrance to the adjoining residential block. These ultra-modern twin towers with their gleaming faceted exteriors cut a dashing figure on the Dubai Marina skyline, resembling towering shards of black crystal, and while the check-in desk is hard to spot, the building is impossible to miss.
