Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel

Inspired, modern style in the city
Upon arriving at Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel, you’ll immediately notice the futuristic perpendicular patterns covering the building’s façade. A feng shui master designed the modern structure; so while the outer surface is angular, inside is a round Confucian lair of rich red, black and dark wood.

Admire the stunning blend of old and new in the lobby, as ancient Chinese calligraphy is brought to life by the city’s largest LCD sky installation and a pagoda sits in the center of the space.

Adjacent to the Zendai Himalayas Cultural Complex, you’ll have access to seven restaurants, art exhibitions, a 4-D cinema and a 22,000-square-foot garden.
