Dubai is where the romance of an ancient Arab land blends with the ultra-modern world of today. You'll find the Xclusive Hotel Apartments close to the point where they meet. Al Bastakiya, the old quarter of the city, is a maze of winding alleyways and traditional Arab houses with wind towers to capture cool breezes from all points of the compass. Traditional Arab trading Dhows and smaller wooden Abras cruise the bustling waters of Dubai Creek – ancient Arab architecture on the Bur Dubai side, stunningly modern on the Deira side.
