Dubai is a place filled with magical hotels and I simply adore a luxury hotel stay. There are few things better than staying somewhere that makes you feel truly fabulous.
Dubai knows opulence and it certainly knows great service. It also happens to be home to some of the best hotels in the world. Everything is on a grand scale in Dubai and luxury hotels really are luxury hotels.
Dubai is definitely high on my list of places I want to return to. There are so many absolutely amazing hotels in Dubai that are on my ‘must-stay’ list too. Here are just a few of them…
Sofitel Dubai The Palm
Okay, so this is a Dubai hotel that I have stayed in already and absolutely loved. Staying on The Palm was fantastic and I loved the views of the city across the water that it afforded. It’s position on The Palm made for a very relaxing holiday, as it feels a million miles away from the buzz of the city, but really is only a short taxi ride away.
Burj Al Arab
I recently watched a programme called The Billion Pound Hotel, all about the fabulous Burj Al Arab hotel. It showed some behind the scenes footage of the people who visit and work in one of the world’s most luxurious hotels. I loved this look at a hotel that has become one of the most important symbols of modern Dubai.
The hotel has more than 200 luxurious duplex suites with gorgeous views of the coastline of Dubai. Each suite also has a butler on hand to offer the very best service possible. It sounds heavenly!
Four Seasons Resort Jumeirah
The beachside location of the Four Seasons Resort at Jumeirah Beach looks absolutely incredible. The views, the design, the gorgeous rooms and the pool all look like the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. Plus, Jumeirah Beach is so close to many of the major attraction in Dubai you can do pool/beach in the morning and city fun in the evening.
Armani Hotel Dubai
The Armani Hotel opened in 2010 and is located inside the tallest building in the world – the Burj Khalifa. Who wouldn’t want to stay in a hotel designed by Armani and inside the tallest building in the world?!
Some of the best rooms in this stylish hotel have balconies overlooking the Dubai fountains. How fabulous would it be to sit on your own private balcony watching them?
Grosvenor House was the first hotel to open up at the marina and has more than 200 rooms with sweeping views of the marina itself. There’s also a pretty snazzy pool and every room is serviced by a butler. The restaurants at this hotel are also said to be some of the best at the marina. Count me in!
Madinat Jumeirah Resort
Madinat Jumeirah features three grand hotels within one resort: Jumeirah Al Qasr, Jumeirah Mina A’Salam and Jumeirah Al Naseem. They’re designed to an authentic recreation of ancient Arabia and have some seriously stunning Arabian architecture and touches.
Within the sprawling resort there are also 50 restaurants and bars, a souk with almost 100 stores and 3 kilometres of waterways and pretty landscaped gardens. A resort of this size and scale is just so Dubai!
