Nestled in the heart of Dubai’s historic district, this ultra-modern 5 star Top Secret Hotel offers a striking contrast between the ancient surroundings and its own contemporary appearance and facilities. The Bur Dubai and Karama neighbourhoods are set around the beautiful creek, which is the home to many floating restaurants, ancient souk markets and abra water taxi stations. Karama specifically is a mix of commercial and residential streets, famous for its cheap eats and local markets, full of hidden treasures and made for bartering.
The property grants guests an extensive list of superior facilities such as valet parking, car rental desk, gift shop, hair salon and news stand. All the communal areas enjoy air conditioning and free internet access, and there are a multitude of facilities designed specifically for business guests, including meeting rooms and audio-visual equipment. The hotel also boats its own restaurant and lobby bar, serving up a delicious menu of local and international cuisine. The spacious and comfortable guest rooms provide a tranquil haven away from the hustle and bustle of the centre and feature first-class furnishings and amenities: plasma TV, coffee and tea facilities and daily housekeeping. When you’re not exploring the sights or attending to business meetings, there are several leisure facilities that offer the perfect opportunity for rest and relaxation, such as a nightclub, fitness centre with outdoor swimming pool, sauna and Jacuzzi.
The prime location of the hotel means that exploring the many delights and treasures around the city is a breeze! The Bur Dubai Bus Station is only a few minutes away, which can transport you to any corner of Dubai you wish. Closer to home, there are several tourist attractions well worth seeing, such as the Dubai Creek, the Burjuman Shopping Centre and the Dubai heritage Village. The latter is situated towards the mouth of the creek around an old mountain settlement, and is the best place to get a close look at the history of Dubai as a pearling nation and the age-old traditions of weaving and pottery. The ‘village’ is a labyrinth of barasti stalls where you can observe craftsmen practising their expertise and also pick up keepsakes and souvenirs to remember your trip. The Diving Village focuses on the traditions of pearl diving in the Emirates, and a guided tour can be taken in order to understand the practices and livelihoods of the local residents.
