This cave was never discovered by the authorities and we scrambled though 200 metres of the cave to the point where it exited close to the shoreline. The island has beautiful fine white coral sandy beaches, which run all along the coastline, and ringed mostly with an outlying reef. Made it to the Indian Ocean on the eastern side of the island, ...

... So on Sunday I made my way to the Office and started getting everything situated for my hitch in Iraq. I attended HEAT (Hostile environmental awareness training) training. It gives you the overview of Iraq, how you travel in iraq and how the Security team works with you while you are in country. Its not any joke for sure.  Well I will be flying into Iraq on thursday.  ...

... down the dunes or quad biking. This left the activities in the camp proper. First I was persuaded to have my photo taken wearing an abaya then I had my hand painted with henna. I opted for small and discreet, much to the annoyance of the artist who does "small" for free as an enticement. Noone ever gets that one. My time was my own for an hour or so. Most people filled that time with camels etc. Crowds started to come. At 7.30 the performers began. The crowd ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Dar Al Masyaf at Madinat Jumeirah Dubai

    Absolutely phenomenal !!!


    My husband and I stayed at the Dar al Masaf for 9 days and we have just returned (sadly). The hotel was probably the best we have ever stayed at, the service was 10 star. We will definitely be back again, hopefully soon. If you are planning to go, request Villa 4 or 5 which are on the beach and closest to the amazing pool. Our experience in Dubai was out of this world - largely due to the Madinat Jumeirah Resort !!!

    Excellent Service considering size of resort


    My stay at Dar Al Masyaf was short, only 4 nights, but worth the long journey. Paid for limo service from airport, but was worth it. Loads of cold towels and bottled water before we even arrived in our room. We stayed in an Arabian OceanView Deluxe villa right on the beachfront, thoroughly recommended. Benefit here was the location, a stown's throw from the beach and pool. Beautiful room and MASSIVE bathroom, absolutely no criticisms there. Butler on hand to make any restaurant reservations and arrange a buggy if you fancy going to the Burj Al Arab for afternoon tea.

    A mixed bag


    Overall, this was a very enjoyable stay. We did not get off to a great start but this was not the hotel's fault. Expedia made an error with my online booking, meaning that they had us down for Mina A Salam. We explained that we had stayed there before and produced the documents to prove that we had intended to book Dar al Masyaf. We waited in Al Qasr reception for quite a while but eventually persuaded them to let us use a villa room, while they got things sorted out. The butler here was excellent. We were then moved to a Gulf view villa. The outlook was fantastic and the room very good. I think that location is key here. We were fortunate enough to be opposite the Meat company (by the way that was the best steak I have ever eaten!), meaning that we could walk over a bridge to restaurants/main hotel lobbies but could also walk to the beach in a matter of minutes. Personally, being out of the way would not have bothered me but there is a danger of being quite some distance from the main eating/drinking establishments. We had a team of 3 butlers. One was a little awkward but the other 2 were excellent. We found them very friendly and more than happy to deal with the range of requirements we had. They did occasionally struggle to understand us but this was generally overcome. There was one error in booking dinner but this was made by the concierge at Al Qasr so I can't blame them. It is not cheap (although we got away with paying the slightly lower Mina A Salam prices) but overall, it was a very enjoyable stay in a high quality establishment. My advice would be to get an understanding of the whole set up and decide if you want to be out of the way a bit or right in the heart of the action. The butler service means that someone is on hand 24/7 and is with you almost immediately should the need arise. This, the room size, option of beach view and generally more personal feel distinguish it from the other 2 hotels in the resort.

    Best Resort Ever!!!


    Dar Al-Masyaf was by far the best resort I have ever been to. I felt that I was very welcome since I first came in. The lady at the reception took my ID, I was then served some arabian coffee, and in only a couple of minutes I was taken to a buggy to go to Dar Al-Masyaf. Once I arrived there, I was again welcomed by the butlers in the villa. I was taken to the room (Arabian deluxe), only to be amazed at how beautiful and organized it was. The bathroom was huge and clean. I requested an iron, iron board and a transformer and they were given to me in no time. Our balcony had a nice view on a water channel. Everything in the room was high quality. We had clean and plenty of towels, a beach bag and a laundry bag. The good thing about Dar Al-Masyaf is that you have the butler service for each villa which makes their service very fast. There is also a happy hour between 6-8 where you can have free alcohol drinks. As for transportation, you can use either Abra or buggy to commute to the beach or anywhere else. Waiting time for Abra or buggy to arrive is very short, it varies from 0-5 minutes. I would recommend the buggy as it is much faster than Abra. You might want to experience Abra once or twice but that's all. As for the restaurants, there are plenty of them out there. The souk is nice and traditional. The beach was also beautiful and the pool at Al-Qasr was as well. Overall, my experience in Dar Al-Masyaf was very positive and I will definitely go back there again.

    Luxurious, but not "Boutique".


    Having stayed in Dubai on four previous occassions, (Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Palace of The Royal Mirage, Al Maha, Palace of the Royal Mirage), I decided to try somewhere different and booked a garden villa at Dar Al Masyaf, the signature accommodation at the recently completed Madinat Jumeirah.

    Fantastic Resort


    Just returned after a five night stay at the Resort; we had an absolutely wonderful time. We stayed in an Arabian Deluxe Villa on the first floor. The room was really spacious and well stocked with high quality essentials and extras (the toiletries were of a real high standard, you had fresh fruit and chocolates every day...). We found the Butler service a real help, the day we arrived they asked us what type of restaurants we liked, as well as what time we like to eat, then set about making reservations for each night, which was good as the hotel was busy. They even included one outside of the resort (Wu's at the Emirates Tower Hotel). Throughout our stay they were always on hand for info on the resort and Dubai in general, always friendly (not just pretending to be!!) but never felt intrusive (which we were concerned about beforehand).

    A severe let down.


    Our stay at this hotel was a completely wasted trip. From the promise of butler service to the use of the phrase 'five star deluxe' - I wish we'd stayed at the One&Only Royal Mirage instead.

    Best place I have ever stayed


    This is a truly fantastic resort. We spent five nights in a Dar Al Masyaf Ocean View villa room. The room itself is huge (60 sq m) with a massive bathroom. Each villa has 8-10 rooms set around a lovely internal courtyard and a large reception area, where at least one butler will always be available.



    There is no reason to stay anywhere else, if you can get a reservation! I was ready to confirm my reservation at the Ritz Carlton when I made a last minute query here and was amazed to find availability and how lucky I was....

    Superlative Service


    We stayed at the Dar Al Masyaf for three mights in early December. This is a part of the Madinet Jumeriah resort alongside the Al Qasr and the Mina A Salam. The Dar Al Masyaf is a collection of villas each with 9 rooms/suites with 2 villas sharing a pool. All the villas are connected by a waterway with transport provided by boat or golf buggy.The experience was simply superb from arrival, where you are taken to a lounge area whilst you are checked in, to the rooms themselves which are extremely luxorious. The thing that makes this different however is the superlative service; this is a step above anything that we had previously experienced. Each villa has a 24 hr butler who caters for any need that you have. The restaurants are excellent, although getting reservations was difficult, and the resort itself is of a similarlly high standard. We took a deal from an internet provider which offered very considerable savings over brochure prices or indeed directly arranging with the hotel. All in all an excellent few days and very highly recommended.
