DUBAI, UAE, January 19, 2011 - Jumeirah, the Dubai-based luxury hotel group and member of Dubai Holding,
has yet again received the honour of being given two major accolades at the
2011 Business Traveller Awards, Germany, held in Frankfurt.

The awards, which are considered to be the most prestigious of their kind
within the hospitality sector, recognise industry excellence across multiple
categories and regions.

This year, the Jumeirah Beach Hotel was again named as the Best Hotel in
the Middle East, which makes it two years in a row. This means that the
popular beachside resort has been awarded the title an impressive five times
since it opened in 1997, having already received the award in 2006, 2007,
2008, 2010 and now 2011.

In addition to winning the prestigious Best Hotel award for the Jumeirah
Beach Hotel, the Jumeirah Group was also named the Best Hotel Group in the
Middle East for the second consecutive year. This is the third time the Group
has managed to win this award and is a further demonstration of the
consistent success of the home-grown Dubai-based company.

The Business Traveller Awards come as a welcome acknowledgement of the
Jumeirah Group's constant efforts to achieve excellence, at the start of a
year in which it expects to open at least six new hotels worldwide.

New properties planned for opening include the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray
Dubai hotel, (
Jumeirah Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi, Jumeirah Dhevanafushi and Jumeirah
Vitavelli in the Maldives, Jumeirah Frankfurt luxury hotel in Frankfurt
Germany as well as the possibility of new openings in Shanghai, Azerbaijan
