Luxury Hotels Dubai
Dubai is rapidly developing into one of the world's top travel destinations as it has the perfect winter climate, pristine beaches and superb infrastructure. Luxury hotels can be found in abundance in Dubai where more five star hotels have been constructed than anywhere else in recent times. Here we take a look at some of these luxury hotels.
Dubai is one of United Arab Emirates positioned almost in the middle of the world and lies on the sparkling Persian Gulf. Dubai has its own International Airport and is in fact the hub for Emirates Airline. The airport is ranked 17th in the world for traffic with 34 million passengers using the airport last year. With all this said it's easy to forget that Dubai is a desert city. The Dubai skyline makes a fantastic photo when the sun goes down against the back drop of the untouched desert dunes.
The infrastructure in Dubai is something that must be admired. The many hotels, buildings of commerce and man-made islands positioned in the city are easy to explore by foot, taxi or by the Dubai safe bus system. Another form of transport and a wonderful way to see new and old Dubai is by Abra (traditional boat made of wood). A tour guide will point out how much the city has changed in recent years and has tried to keep in touch with Dubai today. You will see the old ships, customs building and little pieces of history from this magical place.
The climate in Dubai is what you would expect of a desert, warm winter days and mild evenings, scorching summer days and warm evenings. The locals advise the tourist to only come between late September and early May as temperatures outside of this time reach over 44 degrees. In winter you can expect the days to reach temperatures of 34-25 degrees, the nights cool off dramatically with temperatures hovering at about 12-19 degrees. Air conditioning is in every room, building and restaurant in Dubai.
Although many locals speak Arabic, the majority of residents speak English. Finding a five star hotel in Dubai is easy as the taxi and bus drivers all speak English as do the car hire companies.
Every five star hotel in Dubai has state-of-the-art fitness centres and tranquil health spas. The fitness centres all come with personal trainers and specialised classes which offer the specific needs you require. The health spas offers many different treatments from an Oriental bath house with Hammam table, where staff perform ancient and modern techniques to rejuvenate the mind body and spirit. Or perhaps a relaxing soothing massage under the monsoon showers after a tough day at the beach. The usual extras are of course available from outdoor swimming pools to relaxation lounges, and steam rooms to herbal tea and coffee rooms. These facilities really are world class and are available 24 hours a day.
The guest wishing to experience something magical on their first trip to Dubai will find the rooms more than adequate and finished in the most tasteful and beautiful manner. The views from your room nestled in the Dubai skyline are out of this world.
The never ending sunsets and sunrises turn the city a fabulous pink and from this moment if you haven't already, you will realise what a truly fantastic city this is. The rooms all come with en suite bathrooms complete with stand alone bath tubs, powerful showers and gorgeous vanity units partnered with large cabinet to ceiling mirrors. Large flat screen televisions, cable, king size beds and 24 hour room service makes it hard to leave the room. Your five star hotel in Dubai will aim to make your stay special and hope that one day you will return.
The person travelling on business can find themselves in absolute comfort with everything they need to make their stay productive but at the same time effortless. The rooms all come with giant solid oak desks complete with ergonomically designed chairs, high speed wireless internet and a multi lined phones.
The hotels offer office assistants who can complete various administration tasks, handle your diary, organise meetings and correspond with work colleges on your behalf. A butler can also be arranged to help you even further. At most of these hotels, there are 3 staff members to every guest meaning all your needs and wants are met immediately.
Conference centres and meeting rooms are also at hand and are perfect places to meet work colleagues to discuss the trips itinerary. The centres are able to accommodate small boardroom type meetings to large work or celebratory functions which can hold up 400 guests. The rooms are all decorated for you by your very own event's organiser and team.
Whether you are the business person just hoping to complete various meetings and tasks, or the holiday maker hoping to experience something new and magical, Dubai is the city for you. These hotels are a pleasurable experience serviced by punctual staff who will make sure that you will find exactly what you are looking for in a five star hotel in Dubai.
