    Jumeirah Beach Hotel is to be fully refurbished in 2018 as part of an exciting project to bring a new, modern and fresh look to this much loved Dubai landmark. The refurbishment will extend to all guest bedrooms, the public spaces, lobby, retail areas, beach and outdoor facilities as well as restaurants and dining outlets. Following on from the initial renovation work completed in 2017, interior works are scheduled to finish by October 2018.

    The hotel will stop receiving guests from May 2018 to enable a comprehensive, fast and dynamic transformation with the reopening scheduled for October 2018 in time to celebrate the hotel’s 21st birthday.
    Guests and visitors can still enjoy Wild Wadi Waterpark™ which will operate as normal for external guests and on an unlimited and complimentary basis for all guests staying at Burj AI Arab Jumeirah, Madinat Jumeirah, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, Jumeirah Emirates Towers and Jumeirah Creekside Hotel.

    Other facilities will also remain open and unaffected will include Talise gym and café, certain parts of the beach, Kids Club for Talise members and La Veranda restaurant for lunch.
    The hotel will have a contemporary new look that will be similar to some of our new hotels within the group portfolio.

    There is a strong focus on light, with white, gold and blue accents throughout. The design also embraces Jumeirah Beach Hotel's unique location with beautiful views of Burj Al Arab Jumeirah and the Arabian Gulf.

    From what I have been told, this project is not dead so the potential is still there but at the same time little to no progress is being made on the park.

    Thanks @Stevo71 yes you are correct Jinan park was announced and is listed on top of right column. Xi'an yes was also announced not sure why it was not included in this overview and Wenshang I don't recall at all.

    Can anyone give an update on status of Wanda's theme parks/cultural tourism cities in Xi'an and Wenshang?
