Hidden in the heart of the Al Fahidi Historical Neighborhood, the oldest community in Dubai, the XVA Art Hotel is a dream spot for art aficionados and those who seek to escape the maddening life of a megapolis. This destination is a breath of fresh air in the world of global hotel chains with copy-paste rooms.
The XVA Art Hotel offers 15 guest rooms that are uniquely themed and designed. From the gorgeous black and white suite with bold print duvets and intricate local paintings to the luxurious yet minimalist room with an elegant chestnut bed canopy, each corner of the hotel is an independent, locally-inspired creation.
While the XVA Art Hotel’s artful rooms are perfect for secluded r&r, its public areas with shaded courtyards, modern sculptures and abundant greenery offer the environment that seems to catalyse creativity. And we certainly would not suggest leaving without indulging in a dreamy private courtyard meal.
Yet the takes its guests even further on the journey of aesthetical discovery. The boutique hotel is famous for its very own art gallery that specialises in contemporary art from the Arab world. Established in 2003, the gallery features acclaimed and emerging artists of the region, and takes part in international art fairs such as Art Basel Hong Kong and SH Contemporary.
Escaping from the hectic reality of life is a necessity in the world we live in, but with the endless staycation options around town, it's easy to forget why we needed a break in the first place.
