W Dubai dons a cultural outfit

W Dubai – Mina Seyahi has opened on the highly sought-after Jumeirah Beach coastline, a 31-storey hotel boasting striking glass architecture with unobstructed views of the sun-soaked Arabian Gulf and Dubai’s iconic landmarks.

“Dubai is an always-on, high-energy city with a growing luxury lifestyle scene, making it the perfect destination for the iconic W Hotels brand,” said Candice D’Cruz, Vice President – Luxury Brands, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Marriott International. “W Dubai – Mina Seyahi is the third W hotel to launch in the UAE and reflects its world-famous culture and social vibrancy and brings the W brand’s signature style of luxury to travellers looking for new ways to celebrate the destination. Guests and locals can expect the unexpected with intriguing spaces, vibrant dining experiences and dynamic programming.”

Dubai’s historical, cultural and social fabric is woven throughout the design of the hotel with surprises waiting to be discovered around every corner. The W Lounge – the brand’s take on the hotel lobby – pays homage to famed, Middle Eastern gold souks, with rich, warm hues and gold accents to create a lively, modern-day bazaar. Guests can connect over imaginative cocktails and savoury bites infused with local flavours, complemented by live music and nightly DJ sets. 

“Local and international tastemakers with a passion for music and design will experience Dubai’s bold spirit through the W lens at W Dubai - Mina Seyahi,” said Tolga S Lacin, Area General Manager. “Ideally located with access to the city’s happenings, the hotel brings visionary dining concepts and its legendary Whatever/Whenever service philosophy, and guests can expect modern luxury delivered in a completely unique, surprising way.”

W Dubai - Mina Seyahi features 318 rooms including 27 suites – all sea-facing with a private balcony – where guests can take in Dubai’s vibrant sunsets over the Arabian Gulf, Palm Jumeirah Island, and iconic landmarks such as the Ain Dubai. The Extreme WOW Suite – W’s twist on a Presidential Suite – is perched on the 30th floor offering a 285 square metre contemporary space with two bedrooms, a lounge, dining area and a balcony with sweeping views of the city below.

Located on the second floor, Ginger Moon is W Dubai – Mina Seyahi’s urban beach club experience offering imaginative lunch, sunset, and dinner menus. The W brand’s signature take on the poolside scene – WET Deck – offers guests a fresh space to soak up the sun poolside or under the refreshing shade of a cabana while enjoying cocktails, bites, and eclectic DJ sets. 

ATTIKO, a sleek, high-energy rooftop lounge with views, will open later this month, while  Malakite beach club and pool, set to open next year, will offer a two-in-one concept in over 8,000 square metres of space, with a 50-metre-long pool and private beach.
