Overview

Dubai’s sail-like temple to luxury with nine restaurants, a fleet of Rolls Royces and a sultan’s ransom of bling

The Lowdown

Since its opening in 1999, this self-described seven-star property on its own man-made island in the Arabian Gulf became an icon and a tribute to the frenzied luxury of Dubai. British architect Tom Wright based his 1,056-foot bold design on the sail of a dhow ship. The 202 light-filled duplex suites are a riot of marble, columns and, above all, gold. Nine restaurants and bars include the ground-floor Al Maharda with floor-to-ceiling aquariums and a simulated submarine ride to the entrance, and the 27th-floor Al Muntaha serving modern European cuisine. Balance your chakras at the Assawan Spa, located on levels 18 and 19, which offers organic treatments, infinity pools and a roman-inspired Amphitheatre serving fruit juices and snacks.

In the Area

Dubai’s Umm Suqeim neighborhood is close to Wild Wadi Water Park, and Ski Dubai, an indoor ski resort in the sprawling Mall of the Emirates. The public Umm Suqeim Beach is popular with expats and tourists who come to surf and paddle board. Want to escape modern Dubai for a bit? The neighborhood of Bastakiya, on the west side of Dubai Creek, houses shops, restaurants and galleries in a renovated quarter with centuries-old architecture. Nearby, the Dubai Museum, located in an 18th century fort, gives visitors a glimpse of traditional Emirati culture.

We stayed here in early December 2018 and did not want to leave! . We smiled from the moment we entered to the moment we sadly had to leave.
Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff which are a real credit to this hotel. The hotel itself is everything you expect to be - it’s quite simply stunning.
Our room on the 9th floor had a fantastic views , it was sheer luxury.
Thank you to all of the staff that made our stay very very special.

We have been to Dubai on several occasions, but not for nearly ten years , we have never stayed at this hotel , on our arrival we were met by our personal assistant who showed us straight to our room the room was amazing private bar down stairs lounge tv toilet , then large staircase to open bedroom with another small mini bar large bathroom . Pool area and outside bar amazing, breakfast setting amazing, the service is the best we have ever had , great choice of restaurants inside and out , as you may have guessed it's one of the best if not the best hotel in the world , if you have the opportunity to visit or even stay here you must , also afternoon tea is another experience must book well in advance but well worth a try .

A must visit (but probably only once!)

The most opulent place I’ve ever been... had an afternoon tea with cocktails and paid extra for a window seat (even though I hate heights and wow! The sky bar is high) but the view over the palm is not to be missed. A lovely one off treat but slightly over the top for my taste.
