When it comes to luxury and extravagance, there’s no place like Dubai…
Here is our Top 10 list of luxury hotels in this fabulous destination.
This world-renowned resort is located on an artificial island and treats guests to a once in a lifetime experience. Here you will find one Aquaventure Water Park, Dolphin Bay, an underwater restaurant and even underwater suites (yes, it’s true!). All its attractions make Atlantis the Palm a popular destination for a day trip if you’re staying elsewhere in Dubai.
Water villas… in Dubai? It might sound strange at first, but as soon as you catch a glimpse of this newly-opened resort located on iconic Palm Jumeirah you will overcome your doubts. Anantara the Palm is a unique resort in all senses – the perfect place to relax surrounded by turquoise lagoons, but still be close to all of Dubai’s attractions.
It’s easy to see why Jumeirah Zabeel Saray consistently makes it onto lists like ours. If it’s luxury and opulence you are looking for, this is the right place. Planning a memorable getaway with family or friends? The stunning ‘Lagoon Royal Residence’ features four bedrooms, four bathrooms with rain showers as well as butler service…
Al Qasr’ means ‘Palace’ – and we can assure you that this hotel does all it can’t live up to its name… The property is designed in the style of a sheikh residence, so if you’re looking for a hotel with a royal difference you have come to the right place. Let the Arabiam magic of Al Qasr at Madinat Jumeirah take your breath away!
No Top 10 list of Dubai would be complete without a mention of Burj al Arab – arguably one of the most famous hotels in the world. Its exterior is as eye-catching as it is grand, while hotel services include helicopter transfers, private butlers and discreet check-in. The lobby? Gold pillars and spectacular design. Just like we could expect from a 7 star hotel…
With 504 rooms and suites showcasing both sophistication and style, a roman themed spa and killer views of Jumeirah Beach, this resort has won the hearts of many guests throughout the years. Dining is another highlight – don’t miss out on the exquisite mezzeh and kebabs served under the stars at Al Khaima Restaurant.
Wow factor? Definitely! This is no ordinary hotel… Imagine Arabian courtyards surrounded by peaceful waterways and truly stunning buildings and you’re not too far off. Escape the hustle and bustle of Dubai and escape to Dar al Masyaf, an authentic luxury hideaway.
This award-winning 5 star hotel is a favourite with business travellers, as well as leisure travellers. Located close to the financial and entertainment districts of Dubai, guests are spoiled to facilities such as an exclusive spa, a large pool complex and 13 restaurants and bars. Stay in a suite with views of the city skyline and you might never want to leave!
Not only does Hilton Jumeirah Beach Resort boast a gorgeous private beach where you can enjoy snorkelling and waterskiing, but also a wide range of gourmet restaurants. This is the ideal resort for a holiday of sunbathing, shopping and exploring fascinating Dubai. (Want to impress your Instagram followers?

Although it may not have opened yet (opens December 2014), we still think this hotel deserves a spot on the Top 10 list. Located along popular Jumeirah Beach, Four Seasons Dubai is surrounded by olive trees and has a lobby ceiling decorated with – what else – gold. The resort aspires to bring more glamour to Dubai and the famous Four Seasons service is thought to dazzle guests.
