Move over glass houses, JBR will soon have a crys­tal ho­tel – the glit­ter­ing Rixos Pre­mium JBR’s ar­chi­tec­ture is in­spired by the struc­ture of crys­tals. The 34-storey beach ho­tel is the third prop­erty by the Turk­ish Rixos ho­tel chain in the UAE, and will over­look the Ain Dubai – the colos­sal Fer­ris wheel that’s un­der con­struc­tion off the JBR coast.

While the sights out­side the ho­tel are still tak­ing shape, the ho­tel’s 443 rooms and eight F&B con­cepts are also pre­par­ing to open for busi­ness – there’s Turquoise, an all-day din­ing restau­rant; Luigia’s, an Ital­ian fine-din­ing restau­rant; the sec­ond Lock Stock & Bar­rel (the first bar is in Bar­sha Heights), Amer­i­can steak­house STK and a sec­ond lo­ca­tion for burger and milk­shake em­po­rium Black Tap.

Azure Beach is the ho­tel’s Mediter­ranean beach club, with a lounge area, in­fin­ity pool with pri­vate is­land beds, a beach and a kids’ club. Two more Rixos prop­er­ties in Abu Dhabi will join the ex­ist­ing trio of ho­tels by 2018. Visit
