Shaikh Mohammed inspects project with The Beach Cinema, largest open air screen in the Middle East.
His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, visited on Monday ‘The Beach’ project in Jumeirah, Dubai.
Accompanied by Shaikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, and a number of senior officials, Shaikh Mohammed familiarised himself with the progress of work on the project and its components as well as the tourist services to be provided to the public that may, along with other attractions, contribute to strengthening Dubai’s position as a first-class tourist destination. The project is being implemented by Meras Holding.
Shaikh Mohammed was briefed on the project by Chairman of Meraas Holding Group, Abdullah Al Habbai, and the value it will add to the tourist landscape of Dubai as a state-of-the-art beach destination. Al Habbai said the project will open in two weeks.
Al Habbai welcomed the visit and appreciated Shaikh Mohammed’s attention to national institutions in various sectors, which, according to him, is an incentive for hard work to meet the futuristic vision of transforming Dubai into the best city in the world.
‘The Beach’, located on the Arabian Gulf, as part of Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR), forms a qualitative addition to the integrated entertainment and recreational experience which Dubai provides to its residents and visitors alike. This is achieved through wide variety of facilities that will change the concept of traditional family entertainment, including the ‘beach cinema’ which will serve as the most prominent in the series of added attractions available in the project.
The Beach cinema will have the largest open air screen in the Middle East and will allow visitors to watch screenings while enjoying the picturesque surroundings and the variety of restaurants and cafes spread throughout the area.
A network of hallways and corridors will connect all parts of the project and over 70 brand outlets will be opened in the project including restaurants, cafes and recreational facilities.
