If you’re looking for absolute luxury in Dubai you can’t go past the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray. This award winning hotel has everything you could ever dream of for your stay in the United Arab Emirates, while also making you feel like an absolute princess. The sheer size of the property is enough to make anyone feel small, with high ceiling, beautiful drop chandeliers, inside water fountains and an infinity pool that never feels crowded.
During our time in Dubai we chose to stay at the Zabeel Saray for one reason: we wanted to experience the absolute best and Dubai is definitely leading the charge on exclusive and luxurious hotel properties around the world. The resort had everything you could need for your stay and you might even find yourself struggling to leave the property! Located on the west crescent of the Palm Jumeirah, the Zabeel Saray has a room for everyone starting from regular hotel rooms (although there is nothing regular about what they have to offer) up to exclusive Royal Residences.
The 59 metre infinity pool is a sight not to be missed, overlooking the resorts private beach and the ocean that makes up inside The Palm is without a doubt one of the most stunning places to swim in Dubai. Make sure you book in some time to relax and pamper yourself at the outstanding Talise Ottoman Spa, which boasts an indoor swimming pool, three authentic Turkish Hammams and 42 individual spa rooms and suites.
Additionally, as the Zabeel Saray is a Jumeirah property it offers free admission to the Wild Wadi Waterpark, as well as the opportunity to visit and explore other Jumeirah grounds and properties. I would definitely recommend visiting the Medinat Jumeirah Resort for the best views of the Burj Al Arab, as well as their luxurious private beach and traditional souk shopping experience. A free shuttle bus leaves regularly from the Zabeel Saray that can drop you off at the Medinat Jumeirah, Wild Wadi Waterpark or the Mall of Emirates. This can be a great cost saver, as the Mall of Emirates is almost in the heart of the city and a train or taxi ride from the mall is much cheaper than from the resort on the Palm itself.
The Jumeirah Zabeel Saray also offers the Sinbad’s Kids Club if you’re travelling with little ones, a state of the art gym and fitness studio, a cinema, tennis courts, and world class and award winning restaurants including The Rib Room, Lalezar, Amala, Imperium, Plaj, Club Lounge, Sultan’s Lounge, Voda Bar, Musichall and Al Nafoorah, all offering different culinary experiences, choices and menus.
The whole experience offered by the Zabeel Saray was extraordinary in every sense. From the service to the detail, it really topped the list of resorts I have stayed in. The check in staff were also kind enough to allow us to check into our room as soon as we arrived, even though it was only 7am and check ins traditionally begin at 2pm. When you’re coming off an overnight international flight, this is honestly the best thing that could happen!
To get to the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray from the International Airport we caught a taxi for the 40 minute drive. They were definitely the easiest way to get to the property and were quite cheap, only approximately 100Dhs for the one way journey.
