Dubai is busting with hotels from no star to 7 star these are some of our best.
1. Burj Al Arab – one of the landmarks of Dubai, this hotel has an unusual design that is built to look like a giant billowing sail reaching for the heavens. Its interior is equally impressive with luxurious 2-floor suites, and a reception desk and team of butlers on each floor. At guests’ disposal there is a chauffeured Rolls Royce to tour the town.
2. Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort – in the midst of the desert, the Qasr Al Sarab is like a mirage providing a luxurious retreat in the Empty Quarter of the Liwa Desert. All rooms are decorated in subdued earth tones with elaborate mosaics and jewel-encrusted accessories. Guest can sample fine Middle Eastern foods at the 4 restaurants and the free-form pool is welcomed refreshment from the hot desert sun.
3. Shangri-La Hotel – Shangri-La is the perfect refined getaway in the seemingly over-the-top city. There are 302 guest rooms with rain showers and warm décor featuring local artwork. Its signature restaurants, Shang Palace and Marrakech, serve high-end Cantonese and contemporary Moroccan cuisine. The location, in the center of Dubai, puts the guests in the middle of all Dubai action.
4. Al Qasr – this hotel is part of the larger Madinat Jumeirah resort complex with 292 guest rooms decorated with classic Arabic flair. There is an impressive health club with a 25-meter indoor lap pool, and guests can engage in water sports on the beach, or a decadent spa and, for the youngest, Sinbad’s Kids Club and water-park fun at Wild Wadi.
