Hotels don’t come any more luxurious than the world’s only seven star rated hotel. It’s located on an exclusive private island, but guests can still walk to the nearby Wild Wadi water park and the Madinat Jumeirah souk. The modern sail-shaped building features a dancing waterfall and aquariums.
Rooms are luxury duplexes, with stairs going up to the bedrooms. Even the poolside cabanas come with air conditioning and televisions, and there’s a manmade beach to relax on. Guests can dine in one of the Michelin-starred restaurants and be waited on by attentive butlers.
Experience a taste of the Mediterranean in this Italian inspired hotel. Located on the private island Jumeirah Bay, it’s only 15 minutes from The Dubai Mall, but somehow escapes the feel of the city, as this hotel isn’t a skyscraper. Guests can relax on the private beach, dine in the Michelin-starred restaurant, or pamper themselves in the spa.
Every room has its own private balcony, marble bathroom, and a walk-in wardrobe. Guests can even stay in one of the 20 private villas, each with their own pool and butler.
With its own private beach, a kids’ pool and supervised kids’ club, the Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Beach Jumeirah has everything you need for the best family holidays. Six restaurants led by Michelin-starred Heinz Beck cater to all tastes while parents can enjoy pampering treatments in the Waldorf Astoria Spa, a swim in the outdoor pools or a cocktail at sunset.
Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo is nearby while snorkelling, paddleboarding, windsurfing and deep-sea fishing can all be enjoyed.
This hotel has the luxury you would expect from a Four Seasons, mixed with Middle Eastern decor, such as marble floors and gold leaf. It’s the perfect choice for guests that wish to stay on the beach, but also be close to the shops of Dubai. The service is excellent, with staff waiting on you by the pool, and on the private beach, with complimentary drinks and refreshments, plus there are 11 restaurants and lounges. The large rooms all come with a balcony, that will give you a view of either the beach or the city skyline.
Live like royalty at the Palazzo Versace Dubai, a recreation of a 16th-century Italian palace finished with subtle touches of Arabian architecture. From the moment you step through its striking entrance, you’re immersed in the Versace lifestyle. It is perfectly located for central Dubai
as well as Dubai Creek
while its eight restaurants and bars offer an award-winning choice of food and drink. Among the hotel facilities are lush landscaped gardens with three lagoon pools and reflection ponds.
The best thing about this 5 star hotel is the Forest of Lights bronze sculpture in the lobby, which is two rows of bronze trees, that then continue outside with real trees, and the amazing smell, which is a mixture of lily of the valley, wood, and mandarin.
This all adds to the natural feel of the resort, which is near to the indoor rain forest called Green Planet, and around 15 minutes to Downtown Dubai. Rooms feature a terrace or balcony, and a marble bathroom with a rain shower. The infinity pool is another highlight. Highly recommended luxury hotel !

Located on Bluewaters island, it is close to the Dubai Marina, but around 20 minutes away from The Dubai Mall. Although it’s got the Caesars Palace name, you can’t gamble here.

The Roman decor continues in the rooms, with features like baths with high backs, and luxury bedding. Guests can even enjoy a meal at Gordon Ramsay’s own Hell’s Kitchen restaurant.
This deluxe five star aparhotel is vastly different to anything else Dubai has to offer.
