This modern beachfront property, divided into three buildings, sits amid perfectly manicured lawns peppered with palms and pools. All 509 rooms and suites have balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows with either sea or city views. Deluxe suites come in pale shades paired with ornate Italianate style furniture, including a grand four-poster bed, while other categories are more contemporary with pops of crimson or moss. Things take a historical turn in the Caracalla Spa, which has Roman-style décor (lots of statues and mosaics), offering Elemis and Pevonia Botanica treatments. The 11 restaurants and bars include celebrity chef Richard Sandoval’s rooftop modern Mexican spot, Maya.
In the Area
The Jumeirah strip of mostly private beaches is close to the Dubai Marina and the man-made Palm Jumeirah Island. The connecting beachfront boulevard includes The Walk, a popular stretch of cafes, restaurants, bars, and shops, such as Italian-born designer Gabriella Cortese’s Antik Batik. The shopping and entertainment continues at nearby Dubai Marina Mall and Ibn Battuta Mall. Golf lovers are well catered for, with two championship courses on the doorstep: the Emirates Golf Club and Montgomerie.
How to Get There
We had another great stay at this beautiful hotel. Really like the new room designs and all the amazing restaurants at the hotel. Our dinner at Maya was really good.
From arrival to the end everybody was so friendly and helpful which made our stay relaxing and we will defiantly be back again.
A special thanks for Mr Eddie and his team for looking after us and always being so kind. Its a pleasure to see him around all the time.
From start to finish the experience was first class. The staff are so friendly that comes across in such a genuine way.
Special thanks to Dilshan for his actions when it rained in ensuring our clothing didn’t get too wet. And it certainly rained!!
We stayed here for a week in a superior room. Our was very comfortable and spacious with a large seating area and a bathroom with both a bath and shower. The hotel has a number of swimming pools; we never had difficulty finding sun loungers. If you prefer the sea hotel grounds adjoin a large sandy beach where you can swim in the sea.
The hotel has a large number of restaurants covering most cuisines. Our favourite was the Indian call Indya. You can also eat in the restaurants in the sister hotel, the Grosvenor House. A free shuttle bus runs between the hotels.
Overall we enjoyed our stay in the hotel. The service was always excellent whether in the restaurants or by the pool. My only complaint was beating music that was often played in a number of the restaurants and by the pool areas.
