The Manor by JA
JA Resorts & Hotels Announces New Hotel Addition to the Portfolio
Scheduled for January 2020 – 247 Rooms
A new addition to the skyline of the Dubai-Abu Dhabi route, the Jebel Ali adjacent property is in a prime location for Expo 2020 visitors and corporate guests who wish to be close to the JAFZA business district, Al Maktoum airport and the hub of Dubai South. The new hotel is also minutes from Ibn Battuta Mall, a nearby metro station and Dubai Production City.
The sleek interiors epitomize contemporary design with industrial touches and practical features softened by modern shapes and cool blue and grey hues. Each bedroom is equipped with a slimline workstation, comfortable Queen size bed, practical seating area, futuristic coffee station and a sleek industrial bathroom. Room categories include 28 square metre layouts entitled Simplicity, Clarity and Priority - each one denoting a business and productivity term, to echo the hotels promise of 'Just what you need, No more, no less'. There is also a 180 square metre suite on the first floor, an equipped gym and a rooftop pool. Owner Dr. Hanif Hassan Al Qassim named the property The Manor by JA as a nod to its notable façade architectural structure, nostalgic of a classic country house.
Food and beverage outlets are yet to be announced, but the management have indicated these outlets will be geared towards popular and elevated convenience dining. Murad Ahmed, an Emirati national, has been named as the new General Manager. Previously holding the position of Cluster Executive Assistant Manager for two properties along Jumeirah Beach Residence - JA Oasis Beach Tower and JA Ocean View Hotel, trilingual Ahmed has 15 years' experience in hospitality with JA Resorts & Hotels.
Earlier in the year, JA Resorts & Hotels revealed plans to expand the portfolio of 8 distinct properties across the UAE and Indian Ocean, with the addition of two luxury lodges in Africa and a new brand, 'Big Bed by JA' with up to 30 hotels envisioned in China. In a current stage of transformation, the homegrown company is focused on employing brand legacy and experience in the market to take the company to new heights; improving the existing product and proactively look for opportunities to expand.
