Merging heritage, culture and tradition with contemporary art and design, XVA Gallery and Art Hotel is tucked into Dubai’s historic Al Fahidi Neighborhood, formerly named Bastakiya, Dubai’s oldest area and a former prominent trader’s settlement on the most colorful and soulful Dubai Creek. The historic, listed building was designed by owner/operator and celebrated art curator Mona Hauser, and maintains all standards set by the heritage department and Dubai Culture. Offering 15 individually designed suites and rooms, a vegetarian restaurant, three wind towers, two courtyards, an extensive gallery featuring emerging and established artists, a sultry lounge for its solace-seeking guests, this centrally-located hotspot is the city’s sexiest retreat and best kept secret. Mona’s on-site boutique showcases her global finds from local and international designers and artisans, while her on-site tailor creates one-of-a-kind caftans, scarves and other garments from Mona’s extensive textile collection.
