Popular Dubai Attractions for Visiting Guests

Dubai offers a limitless amount of fantastic activities – from one-of-a-kind cultural landmarks to incredible high-end shopping. Below is a short list of attractions, curated by our hotel staff. If you’d like additional information about places to visit, or ideas about what to do, please contact our concierge.

Dubai Museum

A must-see during any visit, the Dubai Museum is located within the 18th-century Al Fahidi Fort, which has been impeccably restored and renovated. Discover Dubai’s place in history through the many galleries and exhibits within the museum - and be sure to spend time exploring the fascinating pearl diving exhibit.

Deira City Center

Our hotel location in the heart of Dubai places you within moments of premium shopping, dining, and entertainment at Deira City Center/Al Ghurair Mall.

Bastakiya

Catch a glimpse of a bygone era in this district, which is located in Bur Dubai. Bastakiya is notable for its tall wind towers, which were used to cool homes in the pre-electricity age.

Sheikh Saeed’s House

With a central courtyard as its focus, this attraction was constructed in the late 19th century at the entrance to Dubai Creek, allowing the sheik to oversee shipping-related activities. Today, the house offers an intriguing archive of images depicting the fledgling city of Dubai, and of the Maktoum family.

Heritage and Diving Villages

Learn more about Dubai’s interesting heritage, and browse pottery and craft displays, with a visit to this meticulously recreated village – part of a concept that would transform the entire area into a sort of “living history” testimonial for those wishing to experience Dubai as it once was.

Dhow Cruise

Sail down Dubai Creek in a traditional wooden dhow while you enjoy a delicious dinner and listen to live entertainment.

Deira Creek side

Some of Dubai’s most impressive modern architecture (including the Etisalat Tower and the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry) lines the Deira side of Dubai Creek, near the dhow warfage next to the Maktoum Bridge.
