JA Resorts and Hotels cements its global family appeal with two World Travel Awards

JA Resorts & Hotels celebrated two prestigious wins at the recent World Travel Awards, in the international hospitality company’s ongoing tour-de-force as a leader in luxury family travel. Two of the group’s Dubai properties expanded further on their regional accolades, by winning top awards at the 2014 global finals.

JA Palm Tree Court, the luxury beach hotel in Dubai, was announced ‘World’s Leading Family Resort’, while JA Oasis Beach Tower in Dubai Marina clinched the award for ‘World’s Leading Apartment Hotel’. Both properties specialise in family travel on account of their spacious and flexible accommodation options, as well as access to children’s clubs, sports facilities and leisure attractions.

Voting for the World Travel Awards is done by travel and tourism professionals worldwide, who recognise an exceptional commitment to excellence throughout the preceding year. Both properties also received TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice awards for family travel earlier this year. They currently occupy the 10th and 11th spots on’s ranking of 485 hotels in Dubai.

“It is of course tremendously rewarding to see the efforts we’ve committed to in terms of positive experiences for families, result in these global accolades,” said David Thomson, CEO of JA Resorts & Hotels. “That said, to see on a daily basis how our facilities and services enhance family holidays and provide more opportunities for unforgettable memories, is equally special.”

JA Palm Tree Court features a selection of well-designed suites and junior suites in lush gardens, just steps from a private beach bordering the Arabian Gulf. All have balconies and can accommodate at least two adults and two children under 16 years. The luxury hotel is situated in JA Jebel Ali Golf Resort, which features a significant variety of facilities, including a golf course, spa, marina, water sports, multiple swimming pools, tennis courts, shooting club and horse riding stables. It has three activity clubs for young guests which are operated in partnership with the Worldwide Kids Company. ChillZone accommodates teens from 13-18, children from 4-12 are entertained at CoolZone and a crèche welcomes babies and toddlers from 4-47 months.
