At one time, this hotel was a retreat far from the noise and grit of downtown. But the city is quickly encroaching as Dubai Marina continues to expand and the new international airport was constructed only 15 minutes away. The seven-story resort, located on a sheltered stretch of sand, has 128 acres of expansive grounds, including a marina, golf course, equestrian center, and a spa. In addition, a number of peacocks roam wild on the property. The resort caters unashamedly
to tourists and is a popular package offer for travel agents from around the world—a multinational crowd gathers in the restaurants and bars at night.
