Neighbourhood story: from Vintage to Vogue

For centuries,theCreek has been the city's epicenter of trade.

Asthe Creek winds its way through Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary, vintage gives way to vogue, connecting thetrading posts of old with modernarchitecturalexuberance.In the distance sits D3,a nexus of art, design and innovation.

The Creek's journey is a story of the transformation of Dubai from a trading post to the city of the future that it is today, and this has influenced the hotel's overall architectural and interior design approach.

Thoughtful Design. Welcome Distractions. Untold Stories
