Madinat Jumeirah Design
Four Arabic summerhouses are scattered around Madinat Jumeirah’s grounds; Al Qasr, Mina A’Salam, Al Naseem, and Dar Al Masyaf; three boutique hotels, and one summerhouse cluster.
Mina A’ Salam or ‘The Harbour of Peace’ was the first boutique hotel to be completed and features 292 rooms and suites.
Al Qasr, which translates to ‘The Palace,’ comprises 294 rooms and suites designed to reflect a sheik’s summer residence.
Dar Al Masyaf consists of 29 stand-alone, two-story residential retreats inspired by traditional Arabian summer houses.
Each of the 29 ‘houses’ features 9–11 rooms and suites extended across the resort grounds.
Al Naseem, which translates to ‘The Breeze,’ the latest boutique hotel to be completed, comprises 430 rooms and suites.
It is, however, the only hotel in Madinat Jumeirah without a connection to the other hotels via waterway.
5.4 km of waterways link the resort’s different areas, and water taxis (Abra (boat)) allow guests to travel along with them to all parts of the resort.
The Interior Design was led and created by Khuan Chew, Principal of KCA International.
The Madinat Jumeirah waterways are home to a turtle sanctuary that aims to house injured turtles before being released into the wild.
The turtle pen is located at Mina a’Salam and is directly between Al Muna and Zheng He’s restaurants.
