Dubai’s most famous landmark turned 15 just a few days ago and as a birthday gift Jumeirah have decided she needs her own beach. A major construction plan has been revealed which will see a whole beach club environment created. The project will involve land reclamation, cutting into the honeycomb concrete and importation of quality sand.

With work scheduled to start in January 2015, guests at the super-luxury hotel will no longer have access to the current pool area, but instead using the facilities of Jumeirah Beach Hotel’s Executive Pool. Once complete the area will feature a stretch of ultra-private beach, changing areas, dining and bars.

It is unknown whether the current private beach, to the side of restaurant Villa Beach, for Burj Al Arab guests will remain open.
