Al Seef Hotel by Jumeirah has opened in Al Seef on the south banks of Dubai Creek, spread across 10 clusters of Arabian Bayts (homes).

With views down into the alleyways of the souk or out across the busy waterways of the Creek, 180 rooms and 10 suites are furnished with rotary dial phones, hanging oil lanterns and framed photographs of the souk and creek through the years.

Saba’a restaurant in the hotel serves Emirati-inspired traditional dishes and Middle Eastern tastes.

The property is only 15 minutes from Dubai International Airport, and with direct links to Dubai Water Taxi.

Guests can visit the Arabian Tea House Café, historical Dubai Museum and 200-year-old Al Fahidi Fort; travel across the Creek on a traditional abra ride; or visit the Sheikh Mohammed Center for Cultural Understanding which offers traditional Emirati breakfast, national day celebrations, cultural interactions and Q&A sessions.
