From a tiny fishing village to a prosperous trading port, and then to
one of the most iconic cities in the world
, the metamorphosis of Dubai has been gradual, yet dramatic. Sheraton Dubai Creek Hotel & Towers has been here throughout the entire process and so it has seen first hand just how much this city has changed in recent years.
The major part of the Emirate of Dubai consists of rolling sand dunes and the craggy Hajar Mountains in the east. Dubai Creek has played a pivotal role in its development since the time of Dubai's initial growth as a centre for pearl fishing and pearl trade.The vibrant Creek is considered the most picturesque and enchanting location in Dubai
. It offers a glimpse into centuries of fascinating old trading culture, where you can still see traditional Arab dhows gently gliding past the towering skyline. You can go for a relaxing Abra (water taxi) cruise or explore the charming Gold and Spice Souk markets. Or simply soak up some glorious sunshine during the day and a stunning sunset over the Creek on the terrace of our wonderful Vivaldi by Alfredo Russo restaurant.
With its unique location, the hotel is the perfect respite for travellers to immerse themselves in the charms of the old Dubai through the uninterrupted views of the Creek and the city
. In the company of its experienced associates, this 5-star hotel welcomes guests to a world of relaxation, world-class dining and connectivity. Located in the heart of Dubai’s heritage, it offers guests the chance to discover the authenticity of traditional Dubai markets, such as the Spice, Gold and Textiles Souks. With the old merchant market of Al Bastakiya and Dubai Museum in close proximity, the choice of cultural activities is very extensive. For those looking for something a bit more active, there are dhow cruises along the Creek, or there are many desert safaris and tours available at the convenience of the Tour Desk.
