Jumeirah’s newest property, Al Seef Hotel by Jumeirah, is expected to open this September on the banks of Dubai Creek.
The 200-room hotel is spread across 22 traditionally designed Arabian Bayt (homes), adorned with the wind towers that are famous throughout the region. This new hotel by Jumeirah is inspired by the culture, heritage and stories of old-world Arabia, and brings to life the warm traditions of Emirati hospitality.
To quote Alessandro Cabella, whose role as area general manager at Jumeirah Group includes Al Seef Hotel by Jumeirah, “In days gone by, traders travelled across the deserts and seas of Arabia, bringing artefacts, delicacies and spices to the small collection of homes that stood on the shores of Dubai Creek. The villagers opened their doors, inviting travellers into their homes to share meals and stories of their journeys and to trade their goods. The village grew with houses of traders, the shops and alleyways of the souk; and was alive with the sights and sounds of merchants, fishermen and pearl divers – and so Dubai’s story began. Today, these homes have been replicated at Al Seef Hotel by Jumeirah, offering our guests the opportunity to glimpse into the past and create new stories of their own journeys.”
The hotel is located in the second phase of Al Seef, a new district of restaurants, cafes, shops and plazas, located on a two-kilometre promenade on the south bank of Dubai Creek.
The hotel will take bookings from the end of July and welcome guests from September 1 with an inaugural offer of Dh250 ($68) per room per night plus relevant taxes and municipality charges.
