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.
How to Get There
I spent a pleasant break at this hotel for 4 nights was very wonderful
I recommend this to anyone looking for luxury.
Special thanks, as usual, to Mr. Remon for quick response when I ask to change the room.
Thanks for the hospitality and this is not new on Raffles family.
This is not the first time for me and will not be the last.
Raffles is luxurious in its appointments and is blessed with excellent staff at all service levels.
It is the small things the staff do well: in remembering your name, offering birthday cakes for my wife without asking in the bar after our late evening/early morning arrival and later that evening in our room, and for ensuring that her dietary needs were met on all occasions.
Thank you to all staff for making our stay very memorable.
Our expectations were exceeded. Well done.
The hotel instructure is distinctive.
It looks a little bit old in the outside but you will be amazed on the inside of this hotel. Truly luxurious hotel. Elegant and classy. Staffs are very professional. Special thanks to Mr. Elias who introduce me to restaurants on this hotel. Definitely worth your stay on this hotel.
Wonderful amazing hotel. We travelled for our 49th wedding anniversary and were treated like royalty. Our accommodation and the cake and drinks provided by the hotel were amazing. Thank you to all of the staff
This hotel totally surpassed our expectations. we stayed in a club room with our 6 year old twins. there was a couch and a spare bed set up for them with the offer of another bed if the couch wasnt suitable. it was perfectly fine and we were very happy with the set up. the rooms are huge , with a private balcony. the complimentary water and fresh fruit daily was much appreciated. We enjoyed breakfast, afternoon tea and evening canapes and drinks in the club room (children have to go upstairs for the evening canapes which was fine with us as it meant we didnt have to worry so much about upsetting other guests with the kids being a little noisy). The staff were all extremely friendly and nothing was too much for them. Ruby and Mathew in the club lounge were particularly good with the children. The pool was amazing and we enjoyed some drinks at the pool bar. Lama was very friendly and made a special drink for the children which I was grateful for. Our favourite thing about the pool was the complimentary ice bucket with water, which was much needed in the Dubai heat. I have never had this service at any hotels/resorts I have stayed at so it was a wonderful surprise. we also really appreciated the early check in at 6.30am. We will definitely stay again.
