Five stars. Zero faff.

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.

Luxury rooms and suites

After a busy day exploring Dubai’s top attractions, you can retreat to your room to relax. Whichever five-star resort you choose, you can look forward to lavish furnishings, lovely views and a grand bathroom. But there are a couple of options that really are the cherry on top of the cake.

At Jumeirah Dar Al Masyaf, every room is part of a beautiful summerhouse, complete with its own swimming pool and Arabic courtyard – so you’ll only share your pool with a handful of other rooms. Secluded and peaceful, each room has its own private balcony. And there are butlers available around the clock, to help with anything you need.

If you’ve always wanted to stay in an overwater villa, though, opt for Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort. Offering Maldivian-style villas – the first of their kind in the Middle East – this hotel redefines beachfront luxury. Surrounded by water, you can wake up to stunning sunrises and admire the views from your terrace. Your Villa Host will also be on hand to make sure you have an unforgettable stay.

Spas and wellness

No luxury holiday would be complete without a spot of pampering. Most five-star hotels in Dubai have fantastic spas, but some are simply a cut above the rest, with top-notch facilities and signature treatments.

One&Only The Palm is one of our favourites. Here, Guerlain Spa is a true sanctuary offering facials, massages and bespoke treatments. And there are a handful of exclusive treatment suites. You can enjoy a romantic massage for two in the Oriental Suite – complete with its own steam room and outdoor rain shower – or retreat to the Hammam Suite for a traditional spa experience. After a deep exfoliation and body wrap, you’ll have some time to unwind in the soothing steam room. Then, you can choose from four unique massages, after which the Guerlain Massage Elixirs will leave your skin feeling silky smooth.

Fairmont The Palm also has a wonderful spa. Offering signature therapies and revitalising treatments, Willow Stream Spa has 11 tranquil suites. The two couples suites even come with their own relaxation lounge, steam room, sauna, and a quiet balcony with pool views.

World-class dining

If you’re looking for a taste of the A-list lifestyle in Dubai, the dining scene certainly won’t disappoint. This desert city boasts a number of Michelin-starred restaurants, including big names like Hutong and Nobu. But you’ll also find several award-winning restaurants inside the hotels.

At Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah, you can tuck into exceptional Italian cuisine at the relaxed Social by Heinz Beck. Try delicious dishes and reinvented classics, all created by this brilliant three-starred Michelin chef.

Meanwhile, One&Only The Palm’s restaurant STAY offers a feast, with a carefully-curated menu from master chef Yannick Alléno. Innovative and intriguing, this is classic French dining at its finest.
But it’s not all about the food – the experiences also play a big part in Dubai dining. At Atlantis The Palm, for instance, you can eat in an underwater restaurant, Ossiano. Peruse the award-winning Mediterranean menu from Gregoire Berger, and watch as marine life swims past the window.

Indulgent activities

As part of your luxury holiday in Dubai, you can look forward to lots of activities. Several of Dubai’s top hotels offer a number of activities, watersports and excursions. And, to make your stay extra special, you’ll have access to some popular attractions.

Aquaventure Waterpark is one of Dubai’s most loved sites. Particularly popular with families, this incredible park has pools, waterslides, a beach and an aquarium. Adrenaline junkies will love the Leap of Faith, while Splashers Island is great for toddlers. If you stay at Atlantis The Palm, you can enjoy unlimited access to the park. Or, if you book to stay at One&Only Royal Mirage, you’ll receive a complimentary pass to enjoy the slides and sunshine on a day of your choice.

Wild Wadi Waterpark is another top attraction. Right on the powdery sands of Jumeirah Beach, this place is packed with more than 30 slides and rides. Best of all, you’ll receive complimentary access when you stay at any Jumeirah hotel in Dubai.
