Dubai's first boutique hotel still has a faithful following of trendy guests, and it's easy to see why. Housed in a century-old mansion, the property has stylish rooms set around two intimate courtyards. Each room is individually designed by local professionals and personalized by local art. Alongside the hotel is one of the hippest galleries in the city, which hosts prestigious exhibitions of avant-garde arts, film festivals, and product launches throughout the year.
XVA also has a courtyard café that serves fresh snacks, including tasty soups and salads.
