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.
