Dar Al Masyaf: Nobody would argue that the Madinat Jumeirah hotels of Mina A’Salam and Al Qasr offer an exceptional level of service and quality but for the absolute pinnacle of the complex the discerning traveler knows that Dar Al Maysaf is impossible to beat. The name means “summer house” in Arabic and these large villas have a real feeling of seclusion and intimacy. They can be reached by taking a short abra ride from elsewhere in the hotel and after you’ve found your room taking a dip in a private pool or eat in one of the mini-complex’s private restaurants.
