Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island could be getting a Jackson family-themed hotel and resort. Jermaine Jackson, speaking exclusively to The National from Morocco’s Mawazine Festival, said talks are under way with potential investors on building Jermajesty, a five-star resort dedicated to the legendary family’s musical history.
The 58-year-old elder brother to the late pop icon Michael said scouting for locations had already begun, with land near Ferrari World being considered. “We are very early in the process,” said Jackson. “Talks are going on and it is progressing well. A good area we found is near Ferrari World, so we are looking at that.”
Named after Jermaine’s 12-year-old son, Jermajesty Hotel and Resorts is to be filled with memorabilia showcasing The Jackson family’s near five-decade career. Jackson said the family would soon begin discussing how to deck out the hotel. “I feel very honored and blessed to have the opportunity to do this,” he said. “The main aim is to make it have the whole family’s history and legacy. I hope that we just keep moving forward on it.”
Jermaine says that a second location may be in China.
