Staycation review: W Dubai – Mina Seyahi


An adult playground on the coast of Jumeirah Beach in W Dubai – Mina Seyahi…

The location

When it comes to locations, you can’t beat W Dubai – Mina Seyahi. It is located on the coast of Jumeirah Beach and right in the middle of Dubai Marina, one of the trendiest areas in Dubai (without having to deal with Dubai Marina traffic). Residents of Dubai know this district as well as the territory of Barasti, and the rooms of the hotel offer a bird’s eye view of the legendary institution of nightlife.

Look and feel

If you come for the location, you will stay for the hotel itself. W Dubai – Mina Seyahi makes a distinct figure on the Dubai skyline – a 31-story building enveloped in clean lines, glass architecture and soft curves that envelop elegant guest rooms. The designer lobby is striking in an old-world charm that stands in direct contrast to the futuristic aesthetic of W Dubai – The Palm. Here, the W Lounge pays homage to the gold souks of the Middle East, with rich, warm hues and gold accents to create a dark, brooding mess.

The rooms

The W Dubai – Mina Seyahi has 318 rooms, including 27 suites – most of which are completely sea-facing with a private balcony. The design mixes accents of traditional Middle Eastern elements in a bright, inviting space that combines luxury with a bit of personality, while the brand’s signature Mix Bar (and its hidden coffee machine) are welcome luxuries. that make the play fun. The weekend declines
the service includes two unusual gifts; two vouchers for free drinks for Barasti and a pair of earplugs to help muffle his musical evenings on the beach. Take both.

The installations

The main focal point for hotel guests is Wet Deck, the universal poolside party spot of the W brand. At W Dubai – Mina Seyahi, it’s a trendy and intimate space with a very exclusive vibe , like sunbathing in a members-only club. (Note: under 16s are not permitted here). Elsewhere, there’s the BAR-B spa with four treatment rooms, a beauty bar, and relaxation areas with cocktails on demand. Meanwhile, the fitness centre, 1Rebel, will mark the UAE debut of the UK’s luxury sports fitness experience, but this is not expected to open until 2023.

food and drink

For now, most of the action (breakfast, lunch, and dinner by the pool) is at Ginger Moon, the indoor-outdoor lounge and restaurant. Perfect daytime snacks include the gourmet pepperoni flatbread and fabulous club sandwich, while evening signature dishes include a pineapple and jasmine, rice and langoustine with organic chicken. Coming soon – Attiko, a rooftop lounge serving pan-Asian cuisine and signature cocktails, is set to open later this year, and the W Beach Club next to Barasti will open in 2023.

Room rates

The “Fantastic” rooms, with a king-size bed, a sea view and a balcony, start at 1,250 Dhs per night.
