BLINK Design Group is delighted to share its latest project: W Dubai – Mina Seyahi. This 5-star hotel is located in Al Mina al Seyahi, which is part of the Jumeirah Beach area. The design of this new W site was inspired by traditional dhow boats, the romance of travel and the tradition of Al-Halqa tales.
Once a thriving hub of the copper trade, where the storytellers of Al-Halqa weaved their threads into bewitched circles of travellers, the Travelers Port was BLINK’s main inspiration for the hotel, as well as the graceful form and grace of traditional Dhow boats.

The new 31-story W Dubai – Mina Seyahi property features eclectic retro styling, 291 lavish rooms and 27 suites, a spectacular marina-view lobby, infinity pool and lavish BAR-B spa, four meeting rooms and a selection of innovative restaurant concepts. This unique property will bring ancient tales to life through its hosts.
BLINK Founder and Creative Partner Clint Nagata explains, “Dubai has quickly transformed from an old outpost into a state-of-the-art city and one of the most famous travel destinations. Despite this rapid modernization, the thread of history is kept alive through the generations through the traditions of storytelling, one of the most sublime and respected art forms that run through Arab culture..”
The hotel’s signature restaurant, Ginger Moon, is a lively space where international travelers, merchants, and digital nomads can connect. It features a two-level ocean deck opening onto the bay, with a pool bar overlooking The Palm Island. The theme of storytelling continues in BAR-B, the unique exotic spa experience, where socializing and pampering go hand in hand.
