Al Seef Heritage Hotel Dubai, Curio Collection by Hilton is a hotel steeped in tradition and ingrained in local culture. Situated on the banks of Dubai’s historic Creek with its busy souks and traditional wooden abra boats, the Al Seef neighbourhood showcases a side of Dubai that is often overlooked.

For a taste of heritage in the heart of the old city, head to Saba’a, a traditional restaurant serving Emirati-inspired dishes and Middle Eastern flavours. Designed in an authentic style with shuttered windows to keep out the summer heat, diners can expect a distinctly Middle Eastern experience that includes traditional seating areas beneath wooden beams and Arabic lanterns. Or al fresco terrace dining overlooking the narrow streets and wind towers.
