With so many luxury hotels and beach clubs in Dubai, it’s hard to believe that yet another one is going to be any different to what’s come before.

But Nikki Beach Resort & Spa, due to open in spring this year, has enough word-of-mouth buzz and iconic design behind it to possibly make it that something special.

The new hotel at Pearl Jumeirah – a plot of reclaimed land next to Dubai Dry Docks – will offer a Mediterranean look and feel across its 52,000 sq metres resort, with its simple and sophisticated white décor. 

Developed in partner with local firm Meraas, the 5-star venue will offer 117 rooms and suites, as well as 15 villas. It will also be home to an ESPA spa, restaurants Satine and Key West, Café Nikki, and a 400-metre beachfront that will house the popular Nikki Beach Club. 

You can even live at the hotel if you’re that enamoured with it, with 61 residence units ranging from one to four bedrooms, as well as two penthouses. 

“What truly sets us apart as a brand is the design of the property, with a seamless transition between inside and outside spaces,” says Daniele Vastolo, general manager of Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Dubai. “The energy variations and the feel of the different areas, combined with the entertainment concept of Nikki Beach, create a unique atmosphere.” 

What began in 1998 in Miami, the Nikki Beach brand has now spread around the world with locations in St. Tropez, St. Barts, Marbella, Marrakech, Koh Samui, Ibiza, Bali and Monaco among others. Many of the clubs are notorious for their daytime champagne parties and hedonistic crowds. 

As for Dubai’s Nikki Beach, it will undoubtedly become another go to beach club for the city’s party people, rivalling the likes of Nasimi, Eden and Riva

But as far as hotels go, Nikki Beach Resort & Spa really could be a unique property on Dubai’s beachfront.
