Facets from Dubai’s rich cultural heritage have been meshed together to create an eclectic art-inspired vibe at the recently opened Hotel Indigo in Dubai. Located on the banks of Dubai creek, the design of the hotel brings local Emirati elements alive. Each of the 269 rooms at this boutique property are inspired by the story of Dubai creek’s transition from a trading port to the city of the future. Surrealist wallpaper created by local artists, bespoke shisha lamps and mother-of-pearl styled bathrooms that pay homage to the city’s heritage of pearl diving comes together in an ode to the city.

The hotel is also hosting an ongoing Power of Art exhibition featuring curated artworks by Emirati and regional artists until Jan. 31.
