If you’re coming to Dubai to enjoy the beach, relaxing pool days while being close to the best restaurants and bars in town then the JBR area in Dubai is the perfect place to stay for you. The Rixos Premium Dubai is the most iconic building of the JBR skyline but the hotel convinced us in even more way… Read more about our stay in my Rixos Premium Dubai Hotel Review:

Rixos Premium Dubai


The Rixos Premium is located at the JBR Beach not far from Dubai Marina. Surrounded by restaurants, shops and cafes, right at the beach promenade, it’s the ideal location for travelers which come to Dubai for some relaxing holidays. The Rixos Premium Dubai is without any question the most remarkable hotel of the JBR skyline. The area is just a 25-30 minutes taxi ride away from the DXB Dubai International Airport and it only takes 15-20 minutes to reach Downtown with the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Mall.

The Rooms & Suites

The Rixos Premium Dubai offers a variety of different room and suite categories for couples to big families on 35 floors. All rooms have a modern interior with a splash of colors but what makes them outstanding is the view over the Arabian Gulf.

Premium Two Bedroom Suite

Entering this remarkable Suite you will instantly get greeted by the incredible panoramic view over the Gulf, Bluewaters Island and even Palm Jumeirah through the floor-to-ceiling window facade of the living room. This room is without any question the heart of the suite with an extensive size, a cozy couch right in the center, relaxing seats and a dining table.
As the name already implies this suite has two bedrooms – one to the right and the other to the left side of the suite. Both have a direct connection to separate bathrooms. The bathrooms are spacious with a rain shower and a bath tub. Since they are both located in the center of the suite they unfortunately don’t have windows to enjoy the views – but that’s what you can do from every other corner of this 125 m² huge suite!

Pool & Beach – The Azure Beach Club

What makes the Rixos Premium Dubai to the best hotel at JBR Beach is the fact that they have an amazing pool with beach access with a direct view to the Ferris wheel of Bluewaters Island: The Azure Beach Club. No matter if you prefer to have your feet in the sand while tanning, lay next to the pool with some cocktails or enjoy some privacy in your own cabana with a private plunge pool. This place has it ALL and is the most famous Beach Club in JBR. Azure Beach is also open for non-hotel guests for an additional entry fee. Hotel guests can of course enjoy all facilities for free. I also loved their poolside dining possibilities – our vegetarian Sushi Platter has been so fresh & good!

Make sure to go to the Beach for sunset time and watch how the sky & sea turns into the most beautiful pastel colors! Having your feet in the warm water of the Arabian Gulf, the iconic view of Bluewaters Island right in front of you and a cool drink in your hands is the best combination to end a hot day in Dubai!

Another great tip for adrenaline junkies is to rent a jet ski and drive through the bay while enjoying the incredible views all around you! You can rent them – beside many more water sport activities – right at the beach of the Rixos Premium.

Breakfast & Restaurants

The dining possibilities at the Rixos Premium JBR are endless! All together seven restaurants & the Godiva Cafe offer a great variation for everyone. Like the Black Tap which is one of the best restaurants in Dubai for Burgers and Shakes or the Luigia Ristorante which serves delicious Italian cuisine.

Turquoise Restaurant

The Main Restaurant Turquoise serves Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner in a comfortable setting. I especially loved to sit outdoors on their terrace in the evening to enjoy the warm nights with some good food. The restaurant has a buffet concept with several station where the Turkish and International food will freshly be prepared. It’s been great to test traditional dishes and specialities while also having a great choice of international classics. I love how dedicated they are about desserts, homemade cakes and Turkish Baklava choices – as a sweet tooth this made me really excited 😉
