Al Seef Hotel by Jumeirah opens on the banks of Dubai Creek

Al Seef Hotel by Jumeirah has opened on the south bank of Dubai Creek. The property is spread across 10 clusters of Arabian Bayts (homes), tucked away amidst the rooftops and courtyards of a souk, offering guests tales of history and culture at every turn. With views down into the alleyways of the souk or out across the busy waterways of the Creek and a restaurant Saba’a, guests can book to stay from just AED 250 plus government fees and taxes as an introductory opening offer. The hotel has a unique Emirati-inspired design. The Arabian Bayts provide areas of personal peacefulness interspersed amongst the vibrant walkways within the hotel grounds – very much like the old neighbourhoods of decades passed. Further traditions of Emirati culture come to life behind the rough plastered walls, such as palm frond motifs, wooden ceilings and windows with traditional wooden panels that overlook the winding outdoor corridors of the Souk or Creek. The interiors of the 180 rooms and 10 suites reflect an age of pearl trading and Emirati crafts with a colour palette inspired by the UAE’s natural environment. Historical artefacts adorn the walls, with furnishings including old-style light switches, rotary dial phones, hanging oil lanterns and framed photographs of the souk and creek through the years – a visual exploration of the heritage of Arabia. Alessandro Cabella, Area General Manager, Jumeirah Group, said, “Al Seef Hotel by Jumeirah is a real passion project.
