Al Seef Hotel
Jumeirah to open Al Seef Hotel in September 2018 on the banks of Dubai Creek
The hotel is located in the second phase of Al Seef, a new district of restaurants, cafes, shops and plazas, situated on a two-kilometre promenade on the south bank of Dubai Creek. Al Seef is the newest destination by Meraas, the masterminds being some of Dubai's most popular tourist destinations including The Beach and City Walk.
At the opposite end of the promenade to the two recently opened hotels in Jumeirah's Zabeel House collection, Al Seef Hotel by Jumeirah offers a distinctly different guest experience; one which places a strong emphasis on the city's proud history. The area is still a bustling site of trade, with souks and aged dhows full of merchandise bound for India and Africa. A short stroll away are the museums, galleries and cafes of the popular Al Fahidi historical neighborhood; the architecture of which was the inspiration for the creation of Madinat Jumeirah, Jumeirah's 'resort of Arabia' adjacent to Burj Al Arab.
'Like Staying In Someone's Home'
The 22 homes are located in small clusters of 2 to 3 buildings joined by a bridge that provides a walkway above the souk and sharing a common courtyard, encouraging socialising with other guests within the hotel. The design of the twin and king-bed guest rooms draw deeply on the UAE's culture, with authentically aged materials that mimic rustic facades; and interiors that reflect an age of pearl diving, trading and crafts.
