Rediscovering the charm of Old Dubai: a UAE National Day adventure from Savoy serviced hotel apartments in Dubai
As we celebrate UAE National Day, let’s not just revel in the present but also take a step back to honor the roots that have shaped this extraordinary nation. With Savoy Hotel Apartments – Dubai as your cultural cocoon, let exploring Old Dubai create a tapestry of memories that blend seamlessly with the comfort and refinement of modern living in our serviced hotel apartments in Dubai.
Unlocking the doors to Old Dubai: a stay at Savoy Dubai
Savoy is not just a place to rest your head; it’s a portal to the enchanting history of Dubai, coupled with a contemporary sanctuary. As you enter the lobby, the blend of modern and traditional hospitality sets the tone for an unforgettable stay. Our spacious and elegantly designed serviced hotel apartments in Dubai provide a perfect base for culture vultures to explore.
Dubai Creek: Where History Meets Modernity
Dubai Creek – the heartbeat of Old Dubai – beckons us with its tales of trade, pearls, and bustling souks, as local marketplaces are referred to. From Savoy, a short ride takes you to the shores of this historic waterway. As you step onto an abra to cross the creek, the contrast between the gleaming skyline and the traditional wooden boats is a sight to behold.
Book your five-night stay at Savoy Dubai and experience the magic yourself with a free Abra Cruise when you purchase one ticket for a sunset cruise from Dubai Canal to the Burj Khalifa.
You’ll also receive a 15% discount on your room rate and a 12% discount on your food and beverages during your stay!
Make the most of your holiday with our 3-hour early check-in and late check-out (upon request).
Tip: schedule your creek adventure during the late afternoon to witness the golden hues of the sunset casting a magical glow over the water.
Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood: a stroll through time
Leaving the modern skyline behind, we find ourselves in the narrow lanes of Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood. The area is located within the Al Bastakiya Quarter and a living testament to Dubai’s rich past. Wind towers, traditional courtyard houses and art galleries coexist in perfect harmony. Your stay at Savoy Dubai ensures you’re just a stone’s throw away from this cultural enclave.
Dubai Museum: unravelling the city’s story
A short walk from Al Fahidi, the Dubai Museum is a treasure trove of artefacts and exhibits that narrate the Emirate’s transformation from a pearl diving village to a pulsating global hub. The museum is housed in the Al Fahidi Fort, the oldest existing building in Dubai, providing a captivating glimpse into the city’s evolution.
Pro tip: National Day often brings special events and exhibitions, so check the local calendar for any unique celebrations at the museum.
Culinary delights in the Souks
Cultural exploration is only complete with savouring the local flavours. Deira’s spice and gold souks are a sensory delight. Lose yourself in the vibrant alleys, inhale the aroma of exotic spices, and let the sparkle of gold mesmerise you. With Savoy as your home base, you can return to the comfort of your hotel apartment after indulging in a culinary adventure.
Reflecting on the day from Savoy’s rooftop
As the sun sets over Old Dubai, retreat to Savoy’s rooftop for a moment of reflection. The panoramic views of the cityscape, the creek, and the flickering lights below encapsulate the essence of the UAE’s harmonious blend of tradition and modernity.
Experience heartfelt hospitality this National Day when you book your stay at Savoy Hotel Apartments – Dubai.
