Since the 2003 inauguration, heritage and history have merged to create a constantly evolving designer haven called the XVA Art Hotel. The hotel is located in the heart of the Al Fahidi Historical Neighborhood, the oldest community in Dubai. Unique for its Persian architectural heritage, the mystery of its traditional maze-like alleyways and proximity to the Creek, Al Fahidi is viewed as one of the most important heritage sites in Dubai. XVA occupies the former home of the Seddiqi family.
Al Fahidi Historical Neighborhood, formerly known as Bastakiya, is Dubai’s oldest area and a former prominent trader’s settlement. Hidden in the heart of the beautifully authentic Dubai Creek, XVA Art Hotel is the former home of the Seddiqi family, Dubai’s Rolex dealers, which was revamped a few years back by Mona Hauser along with her artist and designer friends to become the beautiful boutique hotel it is today.
Offering 15 individually designed suites or rooms, an award winning restaurant, 3 wind towers, 2 courtyards, and a sultry lounge to its solace-seeking guests, this centrally-located hotspot is the city’s best kept secret.
