Hotels in United Arab Emirates

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.

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.

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.

Perhaps the best way to express the grandeur of the newly built, Kempinski-operated Emirates Palace—reportedly the most expensive hotel ever built—is to break it down by numbers.

You could be anywhere in the world of luxury island resorts, but in fact this modern Arabian fantasy is located at one end of the crescent that tops the man-made extravaganza of the Palm Jumeirah.
