Concierge Tips: Ansar Abdul Basheer
Updated on 22 May 2023

With every visit to Dubai, there is something new to explore, from seeing Burj Khalifa for the first time or attending amazing events in the city. 

Even with all the amazing attractions to see, one of the best way to truly explore and see the essence of Dubai is by finding hidden gems.

Concierges are valubale part of any hotel, giving guests information on things to do around Dubai and planning activities during the stay.

Originally from India, Ansar Abdul Basheer has been a concierge for 12 years in the UAE and is currently the Chief Concierge at The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina.

Responsible for making bookings and arranging tours for guests at the hotel, Ansar shares with Discover Dubai, some amazing places and hidden gems to see Dubai.

What two tourist' activities would you recommend for a visitor if they are visiting over the next two months? 

There is no doubt that Dubai is a fascinating and diverse destination with many activities available and choosing one or two activities can be challenging. The Heritage Safari and Ski Dubai are two distinct experiences that offer a glimpse of the culture and uniqueness of Dubai.

Heritage Safari: If you are in Dubai, you must experience its culture, and there is nothing more exciting than taking a 1950s vintage Land Rover on a nature safari and taking beautiful photographs that will last a lifetime. You can capture breathtaking photographs of Arabian onyxes and witness a spectacular falcon show. Immerse yourself in traditional Bedouin culture with live demonstrations of coffee making, henna painting, camel rides, and performances. During this extraordinary journey, you will experience culture, wildlife, and stunning landscapes and culminating in a four-course dinner under the stars in the Arabic Majilis area.

Ski Dubai: One of the top recommendations on my list is Ski Dubai because it offers a unique experience that allows visitors to experience a ‘winter wonderland’ in the desert. No matter what the outside temperature is, skiers and snowboarders will be able to enjoy the snow all year round. It is the ideal way to cool off and have fun during the hot summer months in Dubai, making it an important attraction for tourists and locals alike.

What would you suggest as a must-try, must-visit and a must-eat for all visitors?

Must Visit: Museum Of The Future, as it is a remarkable destination in Dubai that showcases the latest innovations and cutting-edge technologies designed by visionary designers, artists, and filmmakers. This exceptional museum is a must-visit attraction for those who want to experience what the future holds. Keep in mind that tickets are in high demand, and it is recommended to book them one or two months in advance to avoid disappointment.

Must Try: Sunset Cruise Around The Palm Jumeirah. You do not want to miss an unforgettable sunset cruise around Palm Island with sundowner yacht tours. Watch the breathtaking views from the depths of the sea of this amazing artificial island and the Burj Al Arab. For a stunning view of the Dubai Fountain, you should also visit the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. End your evening with dinner at one of the restaurants in Souk Al Bahar that overlook the fountains and the Burj Khalifa.

Must Eat: Dinner at Attiko, located at W Dubai - Mina Seyahi. This is one of our newly opened restaurants in the resort and is in high demand. It offers a great view, delicious food, live music, and a very energetic atmosphere. It is also an excellent place to take pictures of Dubai's golden sunsets as well as the iconic skyline.

What is a hidden gem that you would suggest is worth visiting or trying?

In my opinion, Al Seef is one of the great place to explore as it is one of the most scenic waterfront destinations in Dubai and also an ideal destination for tourists who wish to stroll through old streets and enjoy local cuisine and desserts. Additionally, there are numerous souvenir shops available, with reasonable prices after bargaining. Al Seef has a Starbucks constructed in traditional Arabic architectural style that represents the theme of the entire district. The building's exterior perfectly blends into the area's theme, making it an ideal location to take photographs,and can purchase UAE-themed mugs and cups to bring with you to your home.

What is your favourite thing about Dubai?

Dubai is my favourite city for a variety of reasons, especially how Dubai integrates the old and new, and if you take a close look at Dubai, you will discover that it offers everything you could desire. It is also the largest, tallest, and, most importantly, safest city in the world.

Dubai is always striving to push boundaries to create unique experiences for everyone. For example, Palm Jumeirah is an extraordinary man-made island, Dubai Frame gives you a panoramic view of the city's past, and present and future, and there are a number of activities available throughout the city like a traditional dhow cruise, a visit to a souk, skydiving, or a desert safari can be enjoyed by visitors who wish to escape the glitz and glamour of Dubai. This city offers it all, whether you are looking for adventure or heritage.

What is the one must-do at The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi for a guest? 

To ensure an unforgettable experience at our resort, I highly recommend spending a day at our pools and private sandy beaches. Start your day with a fabulous breakfast buffet at our newly renovated restaurant, Mina Kitchen at The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina. Then unwind at our exclusively-for-adults pool and beach area at Mare by Bussola, where you can enjoy some true Italian vibes. For those seeking adventure, there is Jungle Bay Waterpark within the resort at Le Meridien Mina Seyahi, or indulge in one of our heavenly spa treatments before having lunch at Fish Beach Taverna at Le Meridien Mina Seyahi, the ultimate seafood dining experience on the beach.

To begin your evening, head to Barasti Beach Bar, within the resort at Le Meridien Mina Seyahi, one of the busiest and most popular beach bars in Dubai, for a pre-dinner drink. Then enjoy an extraordinary dining experience at Papillon, which offers multisensory dining and contemporary cabaret performances that are sure to leave you with unforgettable memories of your time in Dubai. This way, you can rejuvenate both your soul and body, making the best of your visit to Dubai.
