Almost thinking twice about posting this review as the hotel is so peaceful its almost the best kept secret in Dubai and I’m keen to keep that to myself. Whenever we venture out, returning feels like coming home. You instantly relax from the hustle and bustle of wherever we’ve been. The staff are excellent, reception and public areas so clean, and the three main restaurants are excellent. The external areas are fantastic, the staff attend to your every need, they even have a guy who comes around cleaning your sunglasses. We’ve travelled all over the world and this hotel is right up there at the top of our very best list. Read less

Oh forgot to mention the food in Zest is 👍 and Stay was delicious, we didn’t visit 101 as often as we did last year, but that was a good experience too. I think we got used to the staff at Zest, who are just the best. Read less

We absolutely loved this hotel. High end however not pretentious. Rooms are spacious and restaurants included in half board are top class. You really feel you’re in quiet paradise yet still near enough to the busy hub of Dubai town. All staff are amazing especially the lovely Vanessa who ensured my husband had the most perfect 40th birthday… Read more
