Each courtyard residence at the Dar al Masyaf Madinat Jumeirah Hotel Dubai is modeled after the traditional summer houses of old Arabia, surrounded by the feature gardens and serene waterways of the Madinat Jumeirah resort. Shared or private houses overflow with lush touches, as most come with their own swimming pool, on-call butler, and spectacular balcony views of Dubai's skyline. Suites are decorated with inlaid tiles, Persian rugs and wood-carvings. If you're feeling social, you can join your neighbors in an evening cocktail at the 'Majlis' or gathering places at Dar al Masyaf, before heading to the resort across the water for seafood overlooking the bay at Pierchic Restaurant, or a choice of bowls at the Noodle House.

Neighborhood
Dar al Masyaf and the resort of Madinat Jumeirah are right on the Persian Gulf, just south of the public beach at Umm Suqeim - though it enjoys a private 1.3-mile beach of its own. The resort provides a free shuttle service to many attractions, like an outdoor amphitheater which hosts huge music festivals and concerts from the heart of the Souk Madinat, an old-world market bursting with Arabian wares. The Madinat Jumeirah resort is also within easy reach of the Mall of the Emirates and its Harvey Nichols and Virgin outlets, as well as the Metro stations along Sheikh Zayed Road, for quick access to the financial districts.
Hints and tips
Planning a surprise for your sweetheart? The Madinat Jumeirah does romance in a big way, with yacht cruises out in the bay, and couples' massage treatments in the dusk-lit gardens at Talise Spa.
Shimmers restaurant serves meals in 'majis,' or private tents, beside the waves.

Short term break

Expensive and now showing signs of tiredness. Rooms need updating. In room entertainment prehistoric by todays standards. Club area was a disgrace. Poor service and attitude. So much so that when we complained they gave it to us for free.Given they charge premium prices rooms and resort need updating badly.

Third time happy

Having visited this hotel complex for the third time in three years should give an idea of our appreciation of great service. We again stayed in a summerhouse villa, on half board. The butler service was super. Anything & everything we required was taken care of, from water transport, or golf cart service around the complex was to hand. all the restaurants, & there are many, provided excellent food & service. We will certainly go next year.

Everything from the moment you enter, to the cold towels oyou are given and the ambience is phenomenal. The staff are amazing. They help you out no matter what. This is one hotel that said yes to all my demands. A phenomenal experience and worth the money.

Happy time

My wife & I stayed at this hotel complex about the same time last year. We like the whole experience. This year just endorsed our memories. A totally relaxing time. All our needs were taken care of. Will travel to Dibai again in the very near future.

Relaxing break

I recently stayed in one of the lovely summer houses at the Dar Al Masyaf Madinat Jumeriah. We stayed in one of the villas with a view of the creek which was absolutely amazing. It was really helpful having a private butler to cater to our every need but I have to say that ALL the staff at the Dar Al Masyaf and the main hotel the Al Qasr were briliant. I became ill a couple of days towards the end of my stay and the manager and rest of the staff could not have looked after me better, they even sent flowers and a get well card to my room. This was my first visit to Dubai but I went with my cousin who has visited Dubai many times before but it was also her first time at the Dar Al Masyaf and we both agreed that when we return to Dubai we will definately be staying at the Dar Al Masyaf.

A Private escape

Dubai in itself is wonderfully exotic, with Jumeirah Beach a minidestination. There are several hotels as well as a shopping souk,connected by a waterway. Water abras move you smoothly from place to place. Dar Al Masyaf is the best - a group of private villas with individual suites around a fountained courtyard. You have a private butler for checkin/checkout, evening happy hours, any service you might need - and always with a smile. For me, this trip was about breakfast on the lanai with the birds, beach time, souk shopping, and pure relaxation. Total success!!
