Located in the Bastakiya, Dubai’s old town, the Cultural Village Hotel acts as a modern and vibrant contraposition to the quarter’s rich history and neural, sand-based hues. The interior design reinterprets the local patterns, colors, textures, smells and livelihood of the area in a contemporary language to welcome guests and to provide them, simultaneously, with an elegant, calm, peaceful and simple yet comfortable and warm stay.
Other local elements which draw inspiration for this project are the dhow boats which used to travel by the nearby canal, carrying spices imported from India and Iran. This traditional way of transportation encourages the use of eco-friendly and local materials throughout the design.
The hotel has 81 rooms, and other spaces are distributed as follows: on the ground level we find the business center, the ADD with the lounge area and the terrace which is directly connected to the lounge area of the ADD. The public toilets and the prayer rooms are both located at the basement level. The top floor is reserved for guests, with a terrace with a swimming pool and a private gym area. The use of iconic and decorative elements throughout the whole interior design distinguishes the spaces and orientate clients around the hotel.
Paired with comfort and a warm and personalized atmosphere, the interior design highlights the idea of providing local and international guests with “a home away from home” and deliver a new standard of high-end accommodation.
