Standing proudly on a 2km stretch of private beach overlooking the Arabian Gulf, Jumeirah Mina A’Salam is a celebration of Arabian hospitality. Impeccable service and opulent surroundings have come to be expected with Jumeirah, but the hotel has so much more to offer. Here are 12 fabulous reasons to stay at this grand, family-friendly hotel.

 

It’s a welcoming ‘Harbour of Peace’

Mina A’Salam means ‘Harbour of Peace’ in Arabic, so fittingly, the hotel’s sand-coloured wind towers, lagoons and waterways, pay homage to ancient Arabic fishing and sailing traditions. Elsewhere, an elegant mural depicting an ancient mariner’s map adorns the ceiling in the hotel’s opulent marble-clad lobby. Guests can experience Dubai’s maritime culture first-hand as they travel by abra – traditional wooden boats – in the waterways that connect the hotel with restaurants, souk and spa.

It’s inspired by Dubai’s historic Creek area

The architecture of this extraordinary building was designed to reflect the look and layout of Dubai Creek. Leisure and development firm, Mirage Mille, took 36 months to complete the hotel, with a vision of recreating life in old Dubai, in a luxurious setting, complete with waterways, lagoons, abras and a souk.
