The hotel

Named after 14th century explorer Ibn Battuta, this luxurious 5-star hotel reflects his exciting travels around the world through its architecture, décor and cuisine. All guest rooms are beautifully furnished in the vibrant colours of Morocco whilst sumptuous suites are themed around Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Southern Europe. The hotel’s beach club on the Palm Jumeirah is just 10 minutes away with free shuttle transfers available all-day long. Spend your days soaking up the sun, indulging in an impressive selection of water sports or playing endless rounds of golf at several championship courses that surround you. There’s also a superb state-of-the-art fitness centre, complete with rooftop swimming pool nestled under imposing Moroccan arches. Dining opportunities are plentiful including Sicilia for contemporary Italian cuisine, Shanghai Chic for splendours of the oriental world and Chor Bazaar, decorated in the style of a ‘thieves market’ and boasting three tandoor ovens. One of the must-try culinary experiences here is the Friday Family Brunch under the impressive 88 Arabic lanterns of Al Bahou. For a relaxing pre-dinner drink, look no further than Moroc Lounge & Bar, overlooking the iconic Ibn Battuta gate and serving delicious and exotic cocktails. The newest addition to the hotel’s collection of outstanding restaurants is the exuberant Revo Café where you can enjoy a delicious cup of freshly brewed coffee, a wide selection of healthy light meals and sweet treats.

We have just come back from celebrating our first wedding anniversary in Dubai and loved our stay at Ibn Battuta Gate hotel Movenpick. The hotel offered us a complimentary upgrade to celebrate our special occasion. They also agreed for a late check out as our flight was late evening. These things just go onto show how well trained their staff is..the quality of food, ambience, hotel pool and facilities, staff and riva beach club are all exceptional. The hotel lived up to our expectations of it being a 5 star! The location is great as the metro station, bus station as well as the Ibn Battuta mall are all a 2 minute walk. I remember we had checked out at 7pm, but as Ramadan is on there were no taxis available (as most men were breaking their fast) to take us to the airport. The valet services and hotel concierge were running around for a good ten minutes to arrange for one. This just shows how they make their guests feel special and important. Will recommend to anyone specially wanting to stay away from the over crowded jumeriah beach hotels. Read less

First of all. If your looking for outstanding customer service, clean, authentic but modern and not too overpriced majestic type of hotel. This is the one. I stayed here for 8 nights with my partner for 8 nights and we were not disappointed. From our arrival, we had first class treatment from all the staff. The food is overwhelming from all over the world. From Chinese, Lebanese, Italian, Arabian, Indian, Thai, bespoke desserts and chefs how are ready to make anything you wish that is not on the menu. I wish to also mention Mustafa an Egyptian conservative gentleman who was serving just Arabic coffee at the dinner hall. I was blown away from my first taste of this coffee. He kindly made a fresh batch for me and ensured my coffee never went cold. So for all my coffee lovers, this is a must try. Mustafa is a lovely and approachable gentleman, so please ask him for the Arabic coffee. I also took a photo of him (see below). Lastly the hotel is close to a very large mall. However the main town (Dubai mall- largest mall in the world) is 20minutes away and the hotel provides private taxi there. We will definitely be returning here again. Read less

I've lost count of the times I've stayed here....... do I run out of things to say? No! This hotel improves with every visit..... even when you think it cant. Greeted by Romel ..... who takes your luggage and settles you in.... with the warmest of welcome and his wide smile..... throughout your stay he will ensure you are being looked after on a daily basis. The pool area......what can I say...... the staff are AMAZING.......I love them...... so lovely to watch with all the guests.... chatting and ensuring their needs are identified and met. Gotta mention Mustafa.......my afternoon coffee 'fix'.....does this man ever stop smiling?????? Deepak made this stay soooooo special.....sorting out arrangements for my birthday...... looking after my guests at brunch.... it was just perfect. Brunch is out of this world..... and this is confirmed by my guests who live in Dubai and have brunches in many outlets..... Sven is the leader of this amazing hotel.....he is visible and available....and proud of his team, which is lovely to see Everything feels effortless there, although you know how hard everyone must work to make it feel so luxurious for the guests. It remains the top 'peoples hotel' on my list.....Movenpick Staff - Be Very Proud of yourselves! Watch out Kushsal,Anthony,Abdul,Bilal,Anne Deepak,Mustafa and Romel......we hope to be back with you in 6 weeks Read less

We stayed in the Ibn Battuta Gate Mövenpick Hotel for a week during Ramadan in an executive room and we couldn’t have asked for a better stay. The service was perfect. Especially the housekeeping, that cleaned or room twice a day without disturbing us at all. A special thanks goes to George, who took care about everything in the executive Lounge.… Read more

He was very welcoming, attentive and helpful. We will definitely come back and recommend staying at this wonderful place. The rooms are spacious, modern and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful.
