    Opening its doors in February 2010, the interiors of the JBR Movenpick reflect clean lines and open spaces, as seen in the interior architecture of the Pacific Coast. The finishes are light and translucent, with overall intimations of coolness and clarity within the open plan spaces. The style selected complements the Mövenpick brand, which is positioned as a modern lifestyle hotel catering for guests in the leisure and business sectors. The guest profile is one of well-travelled individuals looking for a fresh yet comfortable environment to stay, work and relax – perhaps all within the same trip. For this reason, the lobby is designed to welcome the weary traveller into a haven of cool and calm. The reception desks appear to float above a marble floor interspersed with ‘pebbles’ of mosaic. Soft seating in rattan and natural cottons encourage the guest to relax and enjoy refreshments in the Lounge under the palms, making this space ideal to convene a business meeting within a peaceful ambience, with an imaginable breeze passing through palm trees along a beach front.

    The Pacific Coast theme continues into the West Beach Bay Bistro and to the second floor, where guests can enjoy ‘Talk’ – designed as a dining destination by day, it embraces an evening mood for sunset drinks followed by a transformation into an exclusive sushi bar lounge at night. All facets of the design of ‘Talk’ centre around a glowing onyx buffet and bar counter that slices through space continuing out onto the pool deck for open-air dining.

    Meeting facilities, located on the first level of the JBR Movenpick, offer a variety of different room upgrades to suit the needs of the most discerning business traveller and a well equipped Executive Lounge on Level 23 offers ‘big sky’ views.

    The well appointed rooms and suites feature five fixture bathrooms which are in keeping with the central concept of light and space, while the finishes and furnishings are soft and light using oak wood where tones of the sea meet polished tiles and sandy textures.

    With spectacular views, each Royal suite covers five bays and enjoys a floor to ceiling ‘wow’ factor. Featuring a dedicated bar and extensive double terrace, and providing the ambience and luxury of a cliff top residence on the west coast, light floods over exotic wood flooring, sea grass wall finishes and deep pile carpets whilst oversized American furniture allows guests to ‘chill out’ while watching the sunset over the Arabian Gulf.
