The 405-room Jumeirah Zabeel Saray on the Palm island took a domed Ottoman seraglio for its inspiration. Paintings of sheet-draped harem girls abound, especially in the men's Turkish bath, the world's largest and part of a huge gender-segregated spa with 42 treatment rooms and a 21st-century array of saltwater therapies. The richly brocaded suites and private villas have huge marble tubs in the bathrooms. Local ladies in fashion abayas lunch on the shisha terrace, while expats mingle at the modish turquoise and silver neon Voda Bar and at visually arresting ethnic restaurants: Anatolian, Vietnamese, Lebanese, and Mughal Indian among them.—Susan Hack
