Dubai is Buzzing! XVA Gallery and Art Hotel announces new menu, boutique designers and upcoming exhibition

With Expo in full swing, a contemporary art scene to rival any international destination, new daily flights from global gateways and Dubai’s borders open to travelers, the Emirate is having a moment. We tap American hotelier and gallery owner Mona Hauser and her daughter Grace, hotel and gallery director, for insight to the destination, a place Mona has called home since the mid-80s. Today, they both run the gorgeous XVA Gallery and Art Hotel.
 
Merging heritage, culture and tradition with contemporary art and design, XVA Gallery and Art Hotel sits apart from the shiny skyscrapers and crowded malls and is tucked into Dubai’s historic Al Fahidi Neighborhood, formerly named Bastakiya, Dubai’s oldest area and a former prominent trader’s settlement on the most colorful and soulful Dubai Creek. 
 
Hotel and Gallery Director Grace Hauser explains, “With Expo 2020 underway, the city is teeming with people from far and wide to enjoy all the city has to offer – from the season’s gorgeous weather, to an abundance of restaurants, culture, beaches, shopping and more.” 
 
The historic, listed building was designed by owner/operator and celebrated art curator Mona Hauser, and maintains all standards set by the heritage department and Dubai Culture. Offering 15 individually designed suites and rooms, a vegetarian restaurant, three wind towers, two courtyards, an extensive gallery featuring emerging and established artists, a sultry lounge for its solace-seeking guests, this centrally located hotspot is the city’s best kept secret. Mona’s on-site boutique showcases her global finds from local and international designers and artisans, while her on-site tailor creates one-of-a-kind caftans, scarves and other garments from her personal textile collection.
          
Grace shares the latest from XVA Gallery and Hotel: “We’re about to launch a new menu engineered by Chef Kunwal of Moreish by K, with the dishes paying homage to the spices and flavors from the Indian and Persian trade routes with a modern flair… we are drooling in anticipation. We’re also excited to share a new selection of designers that will adorn the boutique at XVA, with kaftans from Pippa Holt, handbags by the Usisi Sisters, baby clothes by Marie Chantal and delicate accessories by Shashi.” 
 
The XVA Gallery remains a pillar for the contemporary art market in Dubai representing artists from all over and exhibiting a new show every six weeks. 
 
Upcoming Exhibition: C?N YOU FEEL IT by Mukesh Shah, November 6- December 18, 2021. The exhibition showcases Shah’s insightful work, where he paints a thousand pictures with his created slogans, proving the extent to which words are capable of conveying the dystopian reality of this age.
