Hotels in Dubai
Almost a city within itself, the expansive Madinat Jumeirah Resort is composed of three hotels (the Mina A’Salam, the Al Qasr, and the Dar Al Masyaf), the luxury Malakiya Villas, and a total of 44 restaurants and bars.
Overlooking Dubai Marina, the Grosvenor House Dubai is located in the city's Jumeirah district. Composed of two 45-story towers, the property has 744 guest rooms, suites, and apartments.
The 114-acre Atlantis Dubai is, like the Atlantis Bahamas, an oversize extravaganza: 1,539 rooms, a water playground with rides, a dolphin habitat, and a 6,200-square-foot spa.
Opt for the royal seal of approval at HRH Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein’s sprawling property that opened in Spring 2009 with 24 modern rooms on a former polo estate. The property boasts an infinity pool, wellness spa, even a private stable—at prices guaranteed to please.
Overlooking Dubai Creek in the Bur Dubai district, the Grand Hyatt has 674 guest rooms and suites with city views, as well as luxury apartments.
Compared to Dubai’s flashy skyscraper hotels, the waterfront Park Hyatt Dubai, which opened in 2005, is subtle and diminutive—which is exactly the point.
The twin, triangular-shaped towers of the Jumeirah Emirates Towers are one of the defining architectural elements of Dubai’s skyline. One tower houses office space, while the other includes a 400-room, 51-story hotel.
Situated along Dubai Beach, the Jumeirah Beach Hotel rises 26 stories and is designed to resemble a cresting wave. The property’s unique design affords each of its 598 rooms with a view of the ocean, and some also enjoy vistas of the famous Burj Al-Arab Hotel.
This iconic, sail-shaped hotel—which soars 1,053 feet over the Persian Gulf, on an artificial island off Jumeirah Beach—literally epitomizes Dubai’s over-the-topness.
Inspired by ancient Egyptian architecture, the pyramid-shaped Raffles Dubai houses 248 luxury guest rooms and rises 19 stories above the city.
