W Hotels Worldwide, part of Marriott Bonvoy's portfolio of 30 extraordinary hotel brands, announced the opening of W Dubai - Mina Seyahi. Situated on the highly sought-after Jumeirah Beach coastline, the 31-storey hotel boasts striking glass architecture with unobstructed views of the sun-soaked Arabian Gulf and Dubai's iconic landmarks.
"Dubai is an always-on, high-energy city with a growing luxury lifestyle scene, making it the perfect destination for the iconic W Hotels brand," said Candice D'Cruz, Vice President – Luxury Brands, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Marriott International. "W Dubai - Mina Seyahi is the third W hotel to launch in the UAE and reflects its world-famous culture and social vibrancy, and brings the W brand's signature style of luxury to travellers looking for new ways to celebrate the destination. Guests and locals can expect the unexpected with intriguing spaces, vibrant dining experiences and dynamic programming."
A Storied Design Journey
Dubai's historical, cultural and social fabric is woven throughout the design of the hotel, with surprises waiting to be discovered around every corner. Upon arrival, guests are greeted by the artfully designed porte-cochère that leads to a show-stopping Welcome Desk featuring bold colours and textures inspired by the romanticism of a snake charmer – a nod to the Middle East's history of mystique and its mix of poets, storytellers, and performers who brought the energy of the region to life. Inside, the W Lounge – the brand's take on the hotel lobby – pays homage to famed, Middle Eastern gold souks, with rich, warm hues and gold accents to create a lively, modern-day bazaar. Guests can connect over-imaginative cocktails and savoury bites infused with local flavours, complemented by live music and nightly DJ sets.
"Local and international tastemakers with a passion for music and design will experience Dubai's bold spirit through the W lens at W Dubai - Mina Seyahi," said Tolga S Lacin, Area General Manager. "Ideally located with access to the city's happenings, the hotel brings visionary dining concepts and its legendary Whatever/Whenever® service philosophy, and guests can expect modern luxury delivered in a completely unique, surprising way."
W Dubai - Mina Seyahi features 318 rooms, including 27 suites – all sea-facing with a private balcony – where guests can take in Dubai's vibrant sunsets over the Arabian Gulf, Palm Jumeirah Island and iconic landmarks such as the Ain Dubai. The design blends accents of traditional Middle Eastern elements in a bright, inviting space with thoughtful touches. Vibrantly hued interiors and custom furnishings featuring layers of highly textured fabrics with modern lustre honour the destination and its trade route heritage. Separate living, vanity and sleeping spaces, as well as the brand's signature Mix Bar, are welcomed luxuries.
For the most elevated experience, the Extreme WOW Suite – W's twist on a Presidential Suite – perched on the 30th floor is a 285 square metre contemporary space featuring two bedrooms, a lounge, dining area and a balcony with sweeping views of the city below.
Something for Every Appetite
W Dubai - Mina Seyahi's dining and nightlife options will captivate travellers and locals who gather in search of local and globally inspired flavours or a tucked-away cocktail lounge. Located on the second floor, Ginger Moon is W Dubai - Mina Seyahi's urban beach club experience offering imaginative lunch, sunset and dinner menus. Airy and light, this seamless indoor-outdoor space opens to an expansive terrace leading to an infinity pool that highlights panoramic views from the Mina Seyahi bay.
The W brand's signature take on the poolside scene – WET Deck – offers guests a fresh space to soak up the sun poolside or under the refreshing shade of a cabana while enjoying cocktails, bites and eclectic DJ sets.
Opening June 2022, ATTIKO is a sleek, high-energy rooftop lounge set to become the latest hotspot in the city. ATTIKO will serve imaginative cuisine featuring a curated selection of modern and classic Pan-Asian dishes and an extensive menu of international hops, grapes, and signature handcrafted cocktails. An upscale venue boasting enviable views, ATTIKO will be the place to be, from sundowners to late-night gatherings.
Set to open in 2023, Malakite beach club and pool will offer a two-in-one concept in over 8000 square metres of space, set around a 50-metre-long pool and private beach.
