We Welcome the Curious
Every one of our hotels has its own quirks and character, no matter where in the world, but they all have one thing in common; they’re all different and waiting for you to explore. Discover a unique boutique hotel that combines authentic local experiences, modern design and intimate service with the peace of mind and consistency of staying with one of the world’s largest hotel groups.
Every city is an open-top museum, an endless gallery, a visual treasure trove. When we design a new Hotel Indigo, we curate the city to create a hotel; collecting everything that makes it different into a single space. We believe in providing more than just a comfy bed but an experience as unique as the neighbourhoods.
From Vintage to Vogue
Before you arrive in Dubai, you think you know what it’s like. That’s why you’ll find it so surprising. It’s a desert city that’s equally comfortable with its past and its present. It’s what makes Dubai such a unique place to discover.
The Dubai Creek is the waterway that connects the architectural exuberance of the new city with the mystical trading posts of the old. Long before the first skyscraper dwarfed the dunes around it, the Creek was the city’s heart and soul. In vibrant Deira, you will still feel the bustle of a Gulf trading town from centuries ago.
This stretch of the Creek is maybe Dubai’s most surprising area. In the distance, the world’s tallest tower shimmers, but around you are the flavors and colors of an ancient spice bazaar. Boats still ferry throngs of people across the waterway, just like they did during the pearl boom of centuries ago. All around you, people sell and buy and barter just like they’ve always done. Stand around in a souk for a moment and someone will pour you tea. With all that’s shiny in Dubai, it’s easy to forget about the city’s spirited heritage.
Travel further up the Creek to districts that buzz with design and art. You’ll find new precincts full of modern-art galleries, creative hotshops and more fashion than you could ever wear in a season. Enjoy expertly roasted craft coffee among the worldwide creatives who are helping to reinvent Dubai every single day.
From the Creek, you can travel by newly constructed canal to the city’s commercial and fashion hubs. This is where you’ll discover the perfect blend between business and leisure. Join the locals cycling or walking along the canal as you take in the architectural wonders that continue to astound the world.
Just like the thousands of migratory birds that settle by the Creek’s mangroves each year, you are welcome in a modern-day oasis, where all that’s vintage flourishes next to all that’s in vogue. Grab a water taxi and decide if you want to dive into tradition or modernity first. Either way, prepare to be inspired.
You thought you knew what Dubai was like? Prepare to be surprised. In this lively city, many different stories become alive before your eyes.
