The five most beautiful hotels in Dubai

A privileged tourist destination with year-round sunshine and superb beaches, Dubai offers a memorable and colourful stay where hotel boundaries are constantly being pushed back. Here is a selection of some of the most prestigious and refined establishments in the emblematic city of the United Arab Emirates.

 

Jumeirah Al Qasr

This palace worthy of the Thousand and One Nights is part of Madinat Jumeirah. With its architecture reminiscent of a sheikh’s palace, this Dubai hotel welcomes its guests with a décor featuring a graphic blue and gold motif, crystal chandeliers and typically Arabian rough dark wood furniture. This oriental design is modernised by contemporary and western elements and lines, all in a luminous and highly luxurious atmosphere. The hotel service is impeccable and the sea views from the balconies more than appreciable.

Booking a room gives access to all the resort’s experiences. These are scattered around the resort and can be accessed by buggy or abra, small boats that take travellers from A to B along the vast expanses of water surrounding the Jumeirah Al Qasr. Spa, infinity pool, private beach… So you can make the most of Dubai’s upmarket ambience. This already tempting offer is rounded off by a host of exceptional restaurants, from the Mediterranean table with its feet in the sand facing the Burj Al Arab, to the gourmet Italian restaurant nestling at the end of a pretty pontoon and the Thai restaurant located in front of the hotel’s waterways.

 

Mandarin Oriental Jumeira

Set along one of Dubai’s few natural beaches, this hotel is instantly recognisable by its long, palm-fringed pool facing the sea and its rooftop pool. Rooms have balconies with sublime views of the city and its buildings.

With its mythical large tree-shaped structures in the lobby, the Mandarin Oriental Jumeirah offers a number of restaurants, from Portuguese to Japanese steak houses, as well as a caviar lounge and a seafront brasserie. A unique, modern venue that captures the glitz and glamour of Dubai without losing any of its elegance.

 

The Lana Dorchester Collection

Right in the heart of Business Bay, The Lana Dorchester Collection stands out for its feminine, rounded lines. A central podium dedicated to strolling, as its name suggests, features restaurants such as Riviera, run by Jean Imbert, shops and a rooftop infinity pool overlooking the city and the desert.

Sophisticated yet discreet, all 225 rooms have a terrace. The signature duplex suites boast several panoramic terraces. This little gem will welcome a sublime Dior spa in April.

 

One&Only The Palm

In the heart of the Palm Jumeirah, One&Only The Palm is one of the most beautiful hotels in the world, reinventing ultra-luxury. Like a traditional Arabian palace, it has its own private beach and large pools surrounded by cabanas for lounging. While the beachfront villas have their own pools, the rooms and suites are spacious and influenced by a sublime oriental spirit.

After a moment of plenitude at the Guerlain spa, head to the restaurants orchestrated by three-starred chef Yannick Alléno. Stay features highly refined French cuisine, while Zest takes you to Italy.

 

Park Hyatt Dubaï

Although out of the city centre and far from the beaches, the Park Hyatt Dubai is ideal for a soothing stopover, made easier by its location close to the airport. What we love about this hotel are its large gardens, perfect for recharging your batteries, and its swimming pool surrounded by palm trees. And for a more ‘beachy’ feel, head for the lagoon.

The rooms are extremely pure, with cream-coloured furniture and touches of wood. The elegant spa and restaurant offer something for every palate, all in a setting with a wealth of cultural and artistic influences.
