Culture Travel

At Jumeirah, we like to think of ourselves as gateways to local culture, so we go out of our way to bring the best of it to you. At Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel in Shanghai, for example, the entire lobby is encircled by a 1,000-character poem by Chinese scholar Huai Su. While the Jumeirah Grand Hotel Via Veneto in Rome overlooks ancient Roman walls and has its own collection of art by renowned painters such as Picasso, Mio, Dali and more.

Depending on where you stay, you’ll be delighted by intriguing aspects of the region, from fine tapestries and artworks through to historical items such as Hemingway’s desk at the Pera Palace Hotel, Jumeirah in Istanbul.

There are local cooking classes and ceremonies, photography and art exhibitions, museums and theatres and places of local interest to explore. Every Jumeirah experience is as unique as the culture it represents.
