Art and opulence - Dubai

Zabeel Saray took three years to build. The owner is Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed, son of the Sultan who owns the “seven star” Burj al Arab. The 30 year old Crown Prince of Dubai has put  more gold into Zabeel Saray than his father put into the famed Burj al Arab…

First he just wanted to build the biggest spa in the Middle East; later it became a hotel as well.

Full of magnificence 
Inspired by the palaces of the Ottoman Empire, the opulent Jumeirah Zabeel Saray lies on the beach of the West crescent of Palm island, facing views of the new towering Dubai. All over you are blown away by art, hand painted details, fancy shops and so on. With 405 rooms/suites and 38 grand residences come 10 restaurants giving the tastes of France, Lebanon, Turkey, Vietnam and beyond.
