OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The hotel is located in a busy area of the city, Business Bay, set back from a busy road. Bordering Downtown, numerous attractions and amenities are within a 20-minute drive, such as Dubai International Airport, Kite Beach, the cheap restaurants of Satwa and pricey Dubai International Financial Centre neighbourhoods. The Dubai Fountain and the huge, sprawling Dubai Mall are a short walk or drive.

By plane: flights from London and Manchester to Dubai take 7 hours. The hotel is a 20-minute drive from the airport. Free private parking on-site. Book flights to Dubai.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The hotel is impressive from the moment you step into the lobby. It's so big its grand piano looks small in it. Below you are polished light grey marble floors, and above you is a huge glistening crystal chandelier representing birds in flight. Along with numerous Indian artefacts and accents - even the lifts have big illustrations of traditional Indian warriors - are Arabian ones, such as an antique burqa and camel bell. The lack of grounds is made up of terraces and rooftop gardens.

THE FACILITIES

There are numerous eating and drinking places within the tower, as well as a swish spa with male/female saunas and steam rooms and a 24-hour fitness centre with Life Fitness and TRX machines for personal fitness and training. There's an outdoor, city-view pool and a smaller one beneath a little waterfall for children. Free shuttles take you to Dubai Mall.
