A modern-day Egyptian pyramid with impeccable service, pumping nightlife and a popular high tea
There’s no missing this huge pyramid, particularly at night when its pointed tip glows for all to see. Inside the kitsch dissipates into grand, elegant interiors with 246 Middle-Eastern contemporary rooms and suites that are among the largest in the city. All have balconies with city views (some of the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa). Highlights include three swimming pools, as well as the Raffles Spa, where you can experience the hotel’s signature Egyptian Gold and Caviar facials. Restaurants and bars include a Japanese restaurant and a steakhouse, as well as a cocktail bar and terrace offering flavored shisha. Don’t want the night to end? Popular nightclub People at the top of the pyramid is an expat playground with late-night bottle service and 360 views of the city.
In the Area
Bur Dubai, on the western side of Dubai Creek, is the older side of the city. Here you’ll find the Dubai Museum in an 18th-century fort, and the Bastakiya historic quarter with restaurants, galleries and shops lining narrow streets. The Creekside Park between Al Garhoud and Al Maktoum bridges is a good spot for a stroll, or hop on a cable car and see the city from 98 feet up. Want to go higher? At 2,625 feet high, the Burj Khalifa is the world’s tallest building. On the 122nd floor (that’s 1,350 feet), At.mosphere restaurant serves up prime cuts and fresh seafood.
