WAFI opened in 1991 and was one of the first malls in Dubai. Over the years WAFI has expanded through a series of development projects, and the site now offers an impressive combination of almost 300 retail outlets representing over 200 of the world’s most exclusive brands. It also offers the largest collection of quality restaurants and cafes available within one location in the UAE, including many award winning concepts, as well as an impressive range of Health and Leisure facilities
The Group’s flagship is the mixed use development WAFI, which has a history of ‘firsts’ including most recently the introduction of the prestigious Raffles Hotel brand to the Middle East. The Hospitality segment has seen major growth as the Food and Beverage division expands its franchise operations throughout the Middle East, Europe and the USA, whilst businesses in our Industrial portfolio have been ideally placed to benefit from the growth taking place throughout the region.
WAFI Mall’s USP is the premier lifts of glass especially selected from mosques and temples across the Islamic world. It’s one of the largest windows of its kind and is a sight no visitor to Dubai should miss.
When you arrive at WAFI Mall, you’re greeted by striking sphinx statues, and the opulent Egyptian theme continues inside. It’s certainly a treat to be able to shop at over 350 shops while taking in spectacular stained-glass pyramids, as well as pharaoh sculptures and columns with hieroglyphics. You’ll find plenty of designer stores such as Burberry, Roberto Cavalli and Chopard. However, there are also a number of under-the-radar local boutiques.
If you’re a fan of British department store Marks & Spencer, you can indulge right here. Don’t forget to browse Souk Khan Murjan, which offers Arabian handicrafts. There are 30 eateries, and kids can enjoy mini golf and an outdoor pool. Fun is guaranteed for the entire family.
