The Jumeirah Zabeel Saray is in our opinion one of Dubai’s most opulent beachside resorts.shapeimage_54


Located on the west crescent of the iconic Palm Jumeirah in Dubai, this location provides outstanding views of the awesome Arabian Gulf and Dubai’s extremely impressive and well spaced out skyline.

The interior of the well thought out and lavishly furbished resort is inspired by the interior of palaces from the Ottoman period and features many hand painted art works and murals. Adorning the walls and corridors are stunning murals and Turkish artworks that exhibit images from the grand and magnificent era of the Ottoman Empire dating from the 16th and 17th centuries.

The hospitality provided by this exclusive location by far exceeds what you would expect, the level of professionalism shown through the excellent standards of customer care and attention to detail is simply astonishing. The scale of this property is immense and outstanding with the service provided by its well mannered and eloquently trained staff, adding to the unique experience on offer here.

Even the beach front is well laid out along the lapping waterline of the gulf, giving the ultimate sense of being on a deserted island, what stunning views there are to enjoy wherever you go around the resort.

The range of rooms available offers many choices for the discerning guests that will appeal to every walk of life, from the superior deluxe room through to the Grand Deluxe Family room which has 80 square meters of space within your accommodation.

Signature dining offered ranges from the “Al Nafoorah” (Lebanese style dining), Dubai’s first Anatolian restaurant specialising in Turkish cuisine, “Amala” (Northern Indian food that allows you to order any food that you may fancy from A la carte menu) and possibly the most luxurious restaurant is the “Voi” restaurant where you will dine in an elegant room that provides soaring ceilings where glistening chandeliers hang, and where you are served in the style of the colonial French period during the 1920’s. To compliment the splendour, your meals are served on fine bone china which adds to the experience of dining in a period from 90 years ago. To finish your meal in style, cocktails are expertly prepared by Voi’s creative mixologist providing an extensive selection of alcoholic and soft drink beverages to tantalise your taste buds, which will compliment the astonishing meal that you have just eaten.
