Jumeirah Zabeel Saray

Zabeel Saray is the name of a luxury hotel built in the style of the palace during the Ottoman Empire. It is located on the famous Palm Jumeirah - a group of artificial islands in the shape of the tree of the same name.
Zabeel Saray is divided into two parts: there are luxury villas on one side, and on the other side there is a luxury hotel that came to light in the "Mission: Impossible" movie.

Let's begin with two screenshots from the movie. According to the story, the hotel is located in Mumbai, although in reality it is in 


. There is more confusion at the fact that the hotel itself has a Turkish style, that is extrinsic both for Dubai and Mumbai:

A long corridor stretches along the hotel. Its ground floor is occupied by expensive shops. Here it is called ' The Avenue of temptation':

Transparent elevators travel to each floor:

We stayed in a standard room, even though it was just as richly decorated:

Compliments of the hotel. Although the cups look plastic, they are actually made of ceramic:

Children's room. Boys had their own bathroom:

The second part of Zabeel Saray, as has been said, is made up of 30 luxury villas. The coolest are located near the pool, followed by those that are 'easier'.to access. Some guests occupy a villa for the weekend, and some live here for years. Living well isn't against the law:

You are not allowed on the territory of the villas without a reason - security is everywhere and they don't let onlookers pass:

However, they made an exception for me and invited me to look at the house from the inside:

Garages with parked cars immediately catch the eye from the street:

Garages are wide open, there are no problems with car theft here:

Inside, the villas occupy a vast area, much of which is taken up by stairs and communal areas:

These are villas around the pool. Each has its own access to the water:

The pool is 1213 feet (400 meters) long:

Some windows open on the water:

These are, as a rule, drawing rooms for parties. The hotel staff told us that the parties often end with pool parties accessed through open windows:

Kitchen of the villa:

Stairs to the second floor with a small fountain:

Terrace in the open air for parties. Or just for family gatherings:

In general, it is pretty interesting: the bedroom is surprisingly small and compared to the living and communal areas:

Bathroom in Turkish style:

Maid's room (just in case you come, for example, with your nanny):

There is a beach on the inside of the Palm (remember, we are on the island):

Another pool:

There is a pool for children, right in front of the children's club:

There is a 400 years old olive tree brought from Spain. It is a symbol of the L'Olivo Ristorante:

There is one of the biggest spas in 


. Unfortunately, we did not have time to visit it but the reviews were very positive:

There are many bars and restaurants:

Breakfasts are held in the main restaurant:

Fruits are cut and skinned. By order they will cut and place fruit on a platter for you:

Views from the windows are one of the best in 



The sun rises directly behind the skyscrapers, such a fabulous view:

When we were staying there, film were being shot regularly - boats were constantly circling the water and helicopters were hanging over them:

Here is an incredible sunset:
