OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The hotel is located on a private island that is connected to the mainland by a causeway but is within walking distance from other Jumeirah developments and the Arabian-themed souk, Madinat Jumeirah. Dubai International Airport is 15 miles away. Guests have free access to nearby Wild Wadi Waterpark, and other hotels of the Jumeirah Group are close by, giving numerous other restaurant, bar and recreational options.

By plane: flights from London and Manchester to Dubai take 7 hours. The hotel is a 30-minute drive from the airport. Free private parking on-site. Book flights to Dubai.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Everything at this hotel is on a huge scale: for example, the terraced atrium is as high as the Eiffel Tower. The base boasts a multi-level waterfall with fountains, aquariums and glistening boutiques. Double escalators lead to various lounge areas.

THE FACILITIES

As would be expected, the hotel has many facilities, including an extensive spa and fitness centre, and three outdoor and two indoor pools. There's a spacious kid's club, nine restaurants and bars and a helipad. There's a butler service, although each butler oversees a number of rooms. Service is very good, although some guests have found it to be slow or a bit disorganised at times.
