Review: W Dubai Mina Seyahi

Review: W Dubai Mina Seyahi

During my recent visit to the United Arab Emirates, I had the chance to stay at the newly opened W Dubai Mina Seyahi. 

The hotel had a soft opening in April 2022 and fully opened its doors in October 2022. This property became Dubai’s second W hotel, following in the footsteps of the W Dubai The Palm.

The hotel sits on the popular Jumeirah Beach coastline and caters exclusively to adults and young adults over the age of 16.

Having enjoyed a couple of stays at the W Dubai The Palm over the years, and as an admirer of the bold and boisterous designs of the W brand in general, I was looking forward to staying at this brand-new hotel shortly after its opening. 

W Dubai Mina Seyahi – Booking

At the time of my stay at the W Dubai Mina Seyahi, it was much more favourable to book with points over cash. Cash rates were exorbitant across the UAE due to the Formula One race and the World Cup in Qatar, so I opted to redeem 80,500 Marriott Bonvoy points for a one-night stay.

Cash rates at this property usually hover around 1,700–2,300 AED ($630–890 CAD) at the standard rate, but at peak times, you could see rates as high as 3,919 AED ($1,457 CAD).

If booking on points, the rates typically fluctuate between 73,000–90,000 Bonvoy points per night. Considering our valuation of Bonvoy points, I was quite happy with the value of my redemption.

If you’re interested in a cash rate at the W Dubai Mina Seyahi, be sure to get in touch with a travel advisor with access to Marriott Luminous, a preferred partner program in which the hotel participates.

You’ll pay the same as the best publicly available rates, but you’ll enjoy a number of extra perks during your stay, including a $100 USD property credit, free breakfast for two, a room upgrade (subject to availability), and more.
