XVA Hotel

The Al Fahidi Neighborhood, formerly known as Al Bastakiya, is Dubai’s oldest area and a former prominent trader’s settlement, near the Dubai Fort. Hidden in the heart of the historical Al Fahidi, in the maze-like sikkas or alleyways, on the colorful and soulful Dubai Creek, XVA Art Hotel is the former home of the Seddiqi family (Dubai’s Rolex dealers) – turned-boutique-hotel in the early 2000s by founder, Mona Hauser. XVA has created a niche and continues to facilitate conversations on art, culture, heritage and creativity for Dubai. Offering 15 individually designed suites and rooms, an award-winning restaurant, wind towers and three courtyards, this centrally located hotspot is the city’s unique retreat and best kept secret.


In the time since XVA Cafe has been open it has been hailed as ‘Dubai’s best kept secret’. The café serves freshly-prepared vegetarian and vegan food including a variety of main courses accompanied by salads, soups and desserts. Our chefs strive to constantly innovate their culinary vision through different cultures appealing to all pallets. We welcome you to enjoy a refreshing mint lemonade in our green and cozy courtyard, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. XVA cafe is open daily from 7 am to 10 pm.
