Dubai glamour done right, with an inventive Indian restaurant, two bars and a state-of-the-art spa in atmospheric Old Town

The Lowdown

While most Dubai hotels club you over the head with an orgy of bling, the Canvas oozes effortless wealth. The lobby atrium’s textural riot of buttery leather sofas, high pile carpets and low-slung loungers draws its sunset hues from the mod marble tables. Geometric wood panels, hammered silver art and copper wire bookcases lend a metallic sheen infinitely more stylish than the city’s default gold-plated decor. The understated guest rooms feel cocoon-like, with oversize upholstered headboards, curvaceous chaise longues and an earthy palette of chocolate, olive and toffee. Tech amenities include 42-inch interactive flat-screens, an in-mirror TV and iPod/iPhone docks. Glass walls open onto large marble bathrooms with separate rain showers and deep free-standing tubs. The culinary star of the hotel is Sanjeev Kapoor’s Signature restaurant, with its inventive modern takes on traditional Indian fare. Ground floor nightclub Mansion bumps house music (warning: Sound carries to the rooms on particularly rowdy nights). Recover on the daybeds surrounding the rooftop pool with its downtown Dubai views or in the Yhi Spa, which has a sauna, Turkish bath, salon and fitness area with a staff of personal trainers.

In the Area

Located in Dubai’s ironically named Old Town (the majority of its buildings were built in the 1970s), you’re well placed for exploring the gold souks, the galleries and cafés of picturesque Bastakia and the Dubai Museum, the city’s oldest building, which houses artifacts of Dubai’s fishing and pearl diving history. Dare to ascend the dizzying heights of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, then get a different view with a sail on a traditional abra boat. Indulge in the city’s favourite activity, shopping, with a visit to the Dubai Mall. It has more than 1,000 stores, an aquarium, an indoor Sega theme park and an ice rink fronted by a 30-acre lake with a dancing fountain/light show.
