Jumeirah Group, the global luxury hotel company and a member of Dubai Holding, announced the launch of Zabeel House by JumeirahTM.
This exciting second brand from Jumeirah Group, which already operates the award winning luxury Stay DifferentTM brand, has been created in response to the continuing and growing travel trend for exploration and enrichment through travel experiences. Zabeel House by JumeirahTM will have a strong appeal for this increasing segment of travellers, from across a broad demographic, who want to connect meaningfully with their travel destinations.
With five management agreements already signed in the United Arab Emirates, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and United Kingdom, and a number under discussion, Jumeirah Group is creating an eclectic collection of hotels under the Zabeel House by JumeirahTM brand, with a focus on locations at the heart of interesting and exciting neighbourhoods. High on design but low on complexity, hotels under the new brand will offer brilliant basics and unexpected extras set in an upscale, casual environment. The core target market for the brand will be both business and leisure travellers who want a lively base from which to explore: therefore each property will be conveniently located to help guests experience the city they’re in.
The core design ethos of the Zabeel House brand is centred on the uniqueness of each individual neighborhood. Each Zabeel House by JumeirahTM hotel will offer an element of bespoke design, unique features and architectural details. As such, the design model challenges standardization but with common features to anchor the brand and deliver efficiency of scale. Although positioned as an upscale hotel brand, there is no reference to a particular hospitality category. This versatility is an important element of the brand vision and design concept, and reflects the Zabeel House guest; a strong individual with unique tastes and travel passions, whether it is adventure, socializing or seeking somewhere fabulous to retreat to.
Designed for the curious traveller with an intrepid spirit, who wants to experience a city like a resident, discover lesser-known neighbourhoods or uncover a different version of the city that they already know well, Zabeel House by JumeirahTM is a place to immerse into the local neighbourhood or use as a great jumping off point to discover more in cities round the world. Each hotel under the brand will have a price point, service attitude and fanatical attention to design to match this ethos.
Although Zabeel House by JumeirahTM is a distinct and independent brand, the association with Jumeirah gives guests an assurance of relentless quality and commitment to excellence. Jumeirah Group currently operates 19 Jumeirah branded hotels in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
