The first phase of the 232,257m2 Al Seef opened in late 2017 with the development set for completion this year.

In addition to the Zabeel House by Jumeirah hotels, Al Seef will house an additional 200 room-key heritage hotel, a souk, restaurants, cafes, art galleries, Emirati craft workshops, handicraft stores, a floating market, a 68-berth marina for private yachts, and links to the Dubai water taxi network.

Jumeirah Group chief operating officer and interim CEO Marc Dardenne said: “The Zabeel House by JumeirahTM brand responds to the continuing travel trend for discovery and exploration and Al Seef, with so much to uncover within the neighbourhood and its central position as a gateway to Dubai, is an ideal location for the first hotels to open within the Zabeel House by Jumeirah collection.”

Jumeirah has a number of signed hotel management agreements in place for Zabeel House by Jumeirah, including the recently announced Zabeel House by Jumeirah – The Greens in Dubai, and properties in the Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom. 

The announcement of the two hotels brings the total number of Jumeirah Group properties to open by mid-2019 to 12, including Zabeel House by Jumeirah hotel projects, in addition to the 19 Jumeirah hotels already in operation in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.
