Jumeirah Creekside Hotel

Jumeirah Creekside Hotel

A creek-side stay for the environmentally conscious


It has an art program, an eco-friendly philosophy and is re-discovering the creek as a destination for luxury travel: Jumeirah Creekside Hotel, the latest addition to the scene.

Overlooking the golf club and the water, within its own garden and close to Deira, Dubai's "old town", the location alone is a novelty. Rooms and suites – 292 altogether, and all with tubs and stand-alone rainforest shower – come in a colourful, international style. The Cuban-themed rooftop lounge is a highlight.
