Overview

Enjoy a 2-hour dinner cruise along the tranquil waters of Deira Creek. The Al Mansour Dhow offers a full-service bar, as well as a sumptuous buffet full of Arabic and international fare prepared by 5-star chefs. Visitors can top off a feast of Emeriti and Middle Eastern specialties with a mouthwatering dessert. An Arabic singer performs traditional songs, creating a lively atmosphere. Originally used as a cargo vessel, the wooden Al Mansour Dhow was beautifully handcrafted. It now offers stunning views of Dubai cityscape, including the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. The dhow features an air-conditioned lower deck and open upper deck and accommodates up to 130 people. Guests can reserve the Al Mansour Dhow for private or corporate events.

We visited this exceptional floating restaurant in early February. The booking was made at the reservation desk in the hotel as we were guests of the hotel. However this is open to non-residents. The dhow itself is moored up opposite the hotel on Dubai Creek....More
