Whether you are looking for a hotel, villa or apartment, there is plenty to choose from when visiting Dubai. Apartments in the marina are extremely popular and are snapped up well in advance. And some of the best hotels in the city include: Raffles Dubai, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray and Grosvenor House Hotel. Plus of course the Burj Al Arab, which was at one time, the only 7 star hotel in the world.
Or if you want a resort experience away from the hustle and bustle, then spend some time at Al Maha Desert Resort. Its desert setting makes it extremely private and it could easily be mistaken for a mirage, as it looks like a dream set amongst the sand.
To experience fine dining in an elegant surrounding,book a table at Reflets par Pierre Gagnaire, in the InterContinental Dubai Festival City. Here they serve contemporary French cuisine that is Michelin-starred as you sit comfortably in an ornate and ostentatious dining room.
Nobu, at the Atlantis, is also extremely popular and never has an empty seat in the house. This is a chain, but you would never know – with delicious Japanese food and a cavernous style this is a restaurant that you must dine at.
Finally, dine with a difference at Al Mahara at the Burj Al Arab. Enjoy your food whilst admiring the beautiful underwater wildlife this area has to offer, in the huge floor to ceiling aquarium. Why the underwater theme? Well this is the best place in town for seafood of course.
