Dubai is continuing to be popular as a holiday destination and it is easy to understand why. New hotels are being built and they seem to spare no expense to try and exceed customers definition of pure luxury. One such hotel is the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, Dubai. This is a truly luxurious beachside hotel located on the west crescent of the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai. The hotel offers amazing views of the Arabian Gulf and Dubai’s impressive skyline. The lavish interior is inspired by palaces from the Ottoman period and features hand painted finishings, Turksish artworks and stunning murals that are a throwback to the magnificent era of the Ottoman Empire.
