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