The hotel

The Jumeirah Mina A'Salam, meaning 'harbour of peace', forms the gateway to Madinat Jumeirah - The Arabian Resort of Dubai. Designed as a tribute to Dubai's sea-faring past, it is a harbourside hotel from which waterways and walkways extend to all parts of the complex including nine restaurants and bars, the award-winning Talise Spa and a traditional-style Souk Madinat Jumeirah featuring 75 boutique shops, bars and cafés. Traditional Middle Eastern style and luxurious modernity create a haven of Arabian warmth, and the spacious guest rooms are beautifully furnished with private balconies overlooking the sea.

If you are looking for complete satisfaction in a holiday look no further. Excellent service, beautiful rooms, swimming pools and wall to wall sunshine. Drinks are a little expensive so be prepared before travelling

We are regulars at the Mina and it continues to be our favourite. It’s about to be refurbished, we were in a room scheduled for refurbishment this year and we had no idea, it’s perfect. The madinat complex of hotels is in the best hotel location in Dubai in my opinion.

We had a lovely time at the hotel & throughout the excellent Jumeirah resort. We ate at various Jumeirah restaurants throughout the resort (as we were half board) & found them all to be very good. Also the club lounge was excellent. Highly recommended but quite an expensive holiday.

My partner and me had a lovely ride from the Jumeirah Mina A’Salam hotel to Pai Thai. In general, the tour through the channel is very romantic but our driver NAJEEB made it even more special. I wanted to thank him again for his kindness. I will definitely come back.

I was the 6th time in Mina A Salam and it was great again. The refurbished Rooms have given the Hotel a fresher Style. Service and Check Out were perfect. The Beach, Restaurants and Pools are the best in Dubai. You can also use the Restaurants of the other 3 Hotels of Jumeirah or the more than 40 Restaurants in the Madinat. Only Problem is, that the prices have increased to much in the last year that you only have only a few Europeans. The Majority are Russian... so hopefully Jumeriah will Revising the Pricing Politic so that we Europeans can come back one Time... Jumeirah as it is was and is great! Read less
