Jumeirah to open new brand Zabeel House on the banks of Dubai Creek
Zabeel House by Jumeirah is coming to Al Seef this Spring, creating a new hotel experience on the banks of Dubai Creek.
Zabeel House: Jumeirah’s new ‘Upscale-Casual’ collection
Zabeel House by Jumeirah Al Seef is the first hotel in Jumeirah’s new ‘Upscale-Casual’ collection. Think design-led spaces, moderately-priced comfy rooms with just enough added extras, and welcoming and unobtrusive staff. It’s the basics done brilliantly, with a touch of the instinctive hospitality that becomes second-nature when you have created the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah.
A smaller version is also opening next door – Zabeel House MINI by Jumeirah – with a lower price point that doesn’t skimp on style or comfort.
Guests will step into two contemporary retreats, creatively designed with some Insta-worthy quirks, relaxed restaurants and a rooftop pool; and step out to one of Dubai’s most exciting neighbourhoods.
Al Seef is the newest destination by Meraas, the masterminds behind The Beach, Box Park, City Walk and La Mer; a busy two kilometre promenade of shops, cafes and pop-ups on the south bank of Dubai Creek. Old meets new on the waterfront, with modern and imaginative architecture blending into charmed heritage (eat shakshuka and sip a flat white while watching aged dhows stock up with goods bound for Iran, India and North Africa) – creating a fresh reason to visit the part of the city where Dubai’s story began.
With both hotels opening in Spring, here’s what you can expect to find…
