Dubai-based luxury hotel chain Jumeirah has opened its first property in mainland Europe.
The brand, which operates several high-profile properties in the Middle East including the Jumeirah Beach Hotel and the ‘seven star’ Burj Al Arab,
Jumeirah welcomed its first guests to its new Frankfurt property August 1, ahead of the official opening in September.
The hotel is spread across 25 floors in a striking new building and contains a total of 218 rooms in the center of the busy German city, which already boasts several luxury names such as Rocco Forte, Westin Grand and InterContinental.
However, with all rooms measuring 35 square meters and above, Jumeirah says its hotel offers the largest rooms in Frankfurt.
On the ground floor guests can visit a specialist chocolaterie and patisserie, as well as a lobby bar, with a fireplace and views over the Thurn-und-Taxis Palais.
The hotel’s signature restaurant, Max on One, is managed by Executive Chef Martin Steiner and serves “innovative interpretations” of regional and German dishes.
Unsurprisingly, the new building boasts a host of green technology, including an air conditioning system which regulates the temperature using heat detectors and motion sensors to minimize wasted usage.
Talise, the hotel’s signature spa, features two saunas, freestanding bathtubs and tropical rain showers, although more active guests can use the neighboring Premium Fitness First health club.
Although Frankfurt is currently the only Jumeirah property on the European continent, it will be joined by a luxury property at Port Soller, Mallorca, in Spring 2012.
