WanderlustA sneak peek inside Dar Al Masyaf

The Arabian-inspired Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf villas feel like a world away from modern metropolitan Dubai.

From the flowing arabesque lines to the meandering canals, the Arabian-inspired Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf villas feel like a world away from the hustle and bustle of modern metropolitan Dubai. Set in Madinat Jumeirah, just steps from the golden sands of Dubai’s longest stretch of private beach, large terraces overlook the waterways that sinuously connect the property. Traditional design details, such as the ornate dark wood furniture and large Middle Eastern lanterns, are married with modern conveniences like a Nespresso machine or a Bose music system.

Dar Al Masyaf terrace

Arabian-inspired summerhouses

Madinat Jumeirah was once a hub for traders, kings and royalty, a history evoked in the design and surrounding areas of Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf. Each villa is decorated with a charming majlis and has a courtyard with a traditional mosaic fountain surrounded by palm trees. Overlooking the sea or the waterways, and connected to the rest of the resort by traditional abras (water taxis), these Arabian summer houses each have private swimming pools and world-class butler service. The premium Malakiya Villas are decorated with rich oak mahogany woods and intricate tapestries, and the large bathrooms are covered in marble and colourful mosaics.

Arboretum

Experience global flavours

French Riviera transports guests to the culinary glamour of the South of France, but there is also Jumeirah Al Qasr’s Arboretum, which has a large terrace and foliage-inspired decor, or Jumeirah Mina A’Salam’s Hanaaya, famous for its Friday brunch. For lunch, you can hop on a boat or take a leisurely stroll through the grounds of Madinat Jumeirah and head to Pai Tai, where traditional award-winning Thai food, such as deep-fried minced crab meat and chicken with a cucumber sauce or river prawns in red curry sauce, is served amid romantic gardens by the water. Also, just a boat ride away is the popular Greek restaurant Shimmers, located right on the beach, and Pierchic, a multi-award-winning Italian restaurant on the hotel’s private pier.

Heaven-like sanctuary

Switching off is easy in our wellness sanctuary which lies amid Japanese emerald zoysia grass and banana and mangrove trees. Spread across the tranquil waterways of Madinat Jumeirah, Talise Spa feels like heaven on earth. A temple-inspired sound meditation room offers deep relaxation through soothing sounds from a singing bowl, guided by our resident yogi master. The ‘Purifying Body Detox’ from Sodashi starts with an invigorating full-body exfoliation followed by a body mask and promises to purify and detoxify the skin. Achieving your fitness goals is also easy here, with elite personal trainers always on hand at the state-of-the-art gym.
