With 40 years in travel and hundreds of experts ready to help you realise your dream holiday.
Lavish suites, Michelin-starred restaurants and award-winning spas – nowhere does extravagance quite as well as Dubai. Famous for its first-class hospitality and incredible dining scene, the City of Gold knows a thing or two about the VIP lifestyle. Throw in some of the best hotels in the world, and you’ve got a winning combination. So if you’re hoping to experience a slice of ultimate luxury on your next holiday, Dubai is the place to come.
When you stay at a five-star hotel in Dubai, you can always look forward to glamorous touches – but, in the most luxurious hotels, things step up a gear. You can request a stylish transfer in a limousine or helicopter. After a welcome drink, your butler will show you to your suite, where you’ll find plush furnishings and an opulent bathroom. The hotel spa is a tranquil retreat, offering everything from bespoke treatments to tailored consultations. And Michelin-starred chefs create your meals, while expert mixologists craft your favourite cocktail.
Of course, we can’t talk about luxury holidays in Dubai without mentioning the Burj Al Arab. Often acclaimed as the most luxurious hotel in the world, this sail-shaped spot is literally lined with gold. Glittering 24-carat gold leaf appears throughout the hotel, while the Japanese restaurant boasts the largest Swarovski crystal ceiling on the planet. To top things off, the Burj Al Arab also has the world’s largest chauffeur-driven fleet of white Rolls-Royce Phantoms.
When choosing where to stay, you might feel a little overwhelmed by your options. So we’ve handpicked some of our favourite luxury hotels in Dubai – including Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah and One&Only The Palm – to help you compare the very best. Whether you’re looking for gourmet cuisine or sumptuous spa treatments, our experts will help you plan the perfect getaway.
