Local hotel operator Jumeirah Group has received lump-sum prices from contractors for the contract to build the fourth phase of its Madinat Jumeirah development in Dubai.

The site is located between the existing Madinat development and Wild Wadi waterpark, close to the Burj al-Arab hotel.

The construction work involves building a 435-room resort hotel with 400 parking bays, three speciality restaurants, lounges, bars, a business centre, swimming pools and a turtle lagoon. There will also be a laundry, plant rooms, chillers and cooling towers to support the hotel.

The client representative is the local H&H. The development manager is South Africa’s Mirage Mille.

The earlier phases of the Madinat development, which included two hotels, a souk and a convention centre, were completed in 2004.
