Dar al Masyaf is beautiful hotel within the extensive Madinat Jumeriah complex. It comprises a series of villas modelled on old Arabian summerhouses, set amidst meandering waterways, peaceful gardens and exclusive pools.
Each summerhouse contains a number of spacious guest rooms with roomy balconies which overlook the canals, gardens or face out to the Arabian Gulf. Sit on the balcony and experience a palpable serenity or relax in your sumptuous room complete with king bed, tiled floors and an extravagant bathroom boasting exquisite Amouage toiletries.
Guest rooms are arranged around a majilis, or traditional seating area, in an open air courtyard with cool tiles and trickling fountain. Complimentary evening sundowners and snacks are served here by the villa butler or, when the summer heat makes sitting outdoors uncomfortable, in the indoor majilis where you can mingle with the small number of other guests in the villa – many of whom will count their visits to this gem of a hotel in double digits.
Travel around the complex is by golf buggy or by abra – a small wooden boat. Just make a call from your room and your transport will be with you almost immediately. Gliding almost silently along the beautiful waterways in an abra is a unique Dubai experience that is not to be missed.
Madinat Jumeirah resort is modelled as a small Arabian city and features 40 restaurants, a souk (market) in traditional style, an award winning spa, a gym as good as any independent health club, and Dubai’s longest private beach. It would be easy to spend your whole holiday here without the need to leave.
One of Dubai’s most loved hotels, Dar al Masyaf, combines tranquillity and exclusivity with the facilities of a resort. In a city blessed with an abundance of luxury hotels, Dar al Masyaf is unquestionably one of the best.
