Media One Hotel

Dubai City, Dubai Beaches and beyond

The hotel

There’s something seriously slick about Media One Hotel. It’s like they read all the guides to creating the ultimate urban retreat: find a tip-top location (this one’s in the heart of New Dubai), add another mirrored masterpiece to Dubai’s famed skyline, fill it with cosmopolitan city break essentials (Gym? Tick. Dining? Tick. Nightlife? Tick.) and zhoosh it up with accessories straight from a celebrity designer’s moodboard. Like a constant reminder of its cooler-than-cool location, your guest room looks out over the Arabian Gulf, Palm Jumeirah, or glittering Dubai skyline. And, for more eye-popping views, the tower’s dining and drinking hubs include Garden on 8, with on-trend refectory tables and big-screen TVs, and THE DEK on 8, a ‘bar-meets-lounge-meets-pool’ set up, where you can slink from your swim to a poolside sofa for skyline views, cocktails, and chillout beats.

I moved to Dubai 7 months ago and lived in Media One for the first 4 weeks. Lots of choice of things to do. Even though I don’t live in the hotel no more, me and my friends always come back to Garden on 8 in Media One. Great happy hour prices on drinks, and the service is top class all the time.
