Dar Al Masyaf

Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Like the summer houses preferred by the Arabian sheikhs, Dar Al Masyaf offers an intimate hideaway for those who want to be secluded. Each two-story courtyard house, complete with barjeel, comprises a number of spacious rooms and suites that surround a private pool. Although the attractions of Madinat Jumeirah are nearby, Dar Al Masyaf can only be reached by taking a hotel abra (boat) across the waterway that links the hotels with the surrounding properties. So guests can luxuriate here, tucked away from the hustle and bustle, while their private butlers serve them cooling drinks. Some villas have direct beach access, others are in verdant gardens. Guests have access to all the Madinat Jumeirah facilities.
