Nepal's first and only billionaire opens his first luxury hotel in Dubai
Located at the heart of a bustling business district, the Taj Jumeirah Lakes Towers aims to set a new benchmark for business luxury in the region.
Binod Chaudhary, Nepal's first and only billionaire, has opened his first luxury hotel in Dubai. The hotel is located in the mixed-used freehold development of Jumeirah Lakes Towers, also known as JLT. Sitting on Sheikh Zayed Road, the area is home to more than 80 towers constructed along the edges of four artificial lakes.
The first luxury hotel in the area, Taj Jumeirah Lakes Towers boasts 200 rooms and suites. The interiors feature an infusion of Indian and Middle Eastern touches, accentuated by an eclectic mix of art and vibrant textiles.
Facilities at the hotel include the exclusive Taj Club Lounge and a round-the-clock gym. The opening of the hotel also heralds the arrival of the first ballroom in the JLT area. The venue can hold a maximum of 250 guests and is ideal for conferences, cocktail receptions or small wedding receptions.
Modern chandeliers adorn the high ceilings and the elegant cream and gold colour palette is accented by dark wood panelling. The property also features two meeting rooms for seamless boardroom style meetings and conferences.
For business meals with clients or colleagues, guests can choose to dine at bistro-cafe TJ’s, which serves freshly brewed coffee, homemade pastries, breads and salads.
Those looking to impress can opt to dine at Shamiana restaurant, which features authentic specialty dishes from all four regions of India. Originally from the Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai, the renowned restaurant has now been introduced to the Middle East.
Meanwhile, Paros, a Mediterranean inspired rooftop pool bar and restaurant, is also slated to open soon.
With an ideal location, the hotel is expected to draw both business and leisure travellers alike. Taj Jumeirah Lakes Towers is located 30 minutes from Dubai International Airport and Dubai World Central Airport. It is also a five-minute walk from the metro station and within reach of the city’s key commercial areas, including business hub Jebel Ali.
