Jumeirah Group‘s newly renovated The Carlton Tower in London completed a multi-million dollar renovation at the end of May 2021, after a complete closure for more than a year. The property which is fully owned by Dubai Holding (Jumeirah Group’s parent company) had announced the official re-opening for June 7th 2021.
Now, after several delays, the hotel’s website is accepting reservations for July 19th 2021 . Several sources indicated that health / sanitary related matters are the reason behind the multiple delays. The superb renovation has been overseen by immensely talented luxury hotelier Aaron Kaupp.
The Carlton Tower is the only international property (outside Dubai) which Jumeirah Group owns and operates. The Jumeirah Group presently operates properties in Frankfurt, Capri, Mallorca, Guangzhou, Nanjing and Shanghai – one property in each destination. In the past 4 years, Jumeirah Group lost the management of properties in London (Grosvenor House Suites), Istanbul (2 properties, Pera Palace and Atakoy ), Baku, Maldives, Abu Dhabi. New openings are announced for: Oman (1), Saudi Arabia (1) and Bali (1)
After the departure of Anthony Costa (Regional Vice President, Managing Director Burj Al Arab (formerly at Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group), the management of flagship property Burj Al Arab (no plans for the much needed renovation) was taken over by Ermanno Zanini, former General Manager of seasonal luxury resort of Capri Palace in Capri, Italy. Michael Ellis (Chief Culinary Officer, formerly at Michelin Guide) and Fergus Stewart (acting COO) both left Jumeirah Group this year.
