Amy Adejokun Section editor

Grosvenor House is an establishment primarily designed for businessmen, but it won't fail to impress guests who are used to a certain level of luxury. Its interior is extremely trendy, as is its evening entertainment, and the food here is excellent. The hotel occupies a high-rise building, the rooms of which are decorated in soft tones (making them all the more restful) and you will very soon realise that this hotel, which mixes elegance and modernity, pays special attention to the slightest detail!

    Location 1.0 /10

    A five minute drive will take you to Jumeirah beach, and the hotel is some 13 mi from the city centre and 16 mi from the airport. It will take you about half an hour to get to Deira, and around the same time to reach the airport. Incidentally, a canal running from the huge artificial marina, between the hotel and the sea, is currently being built.

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    Half of the 422 rooms of the hotel are apartments that look out onto the marina, and the other half are standard 410 sq ft rooms and suites with a view of the sea in the distance. The rooms are very elegant, yet simple, and their cream-coloured interior decor and quality bedding make for a very comfortable and restful setting. All the rooms include dark furniture of good quality, a couple of paintings, large leather seats and a sofa. Large bay windows provide generous lighting to the rooms and some of the rooms have balconies. As far as amenities are concerned, there is an enormous flat-screen television with numerous channels facing the King-size bed, there is also individual and quiet air-conditioning, a minibar with tea and coffee-making facilities (free), a phone and a cable Internet connection. The dark brown bathroom is of standard size, but it is very elegantly decorated: there are two light fixtures on top of a huge mirror that hangs above a sink built into the brown marble bathroom cabinet. All have a bathtub with a separate shower, chequered floor, small cove with a toilet, a hair-dryer, a well-furnished set of Bulgari hospitality products, electronic scales, dressing-gowns and slippers. Room-service and a butler are available upon request 24/7.

    Overview 9.20 /10

    Thanks to its location at the end of a blind alley, the entrance of Grosvenor House remains undisturbed by traffic. There are over ten cars awaiting your arrival in front of this 44-floor building that was finished in June 2005. The reception area is built over two separate levels: the first is where the concierges, valets and porters congregate, and the second is the more impressive reception area which can be reached via a flight of steps or the escalator. Its architecture is not only elegant but extremely geometrical, mixing high ceilings with brown and black colours brightened up by tones of cream and orange. At night time it makes for a superb setting, with all the lit candles and huge bouquets of orange roses, and you will not be able to resist the comfort of its large sofas. On the first floor, you will find the relaxation area, with an outdoor lagoon swimming-pool surrounded by numerous comfy, yellow raffia deckchairs. With its elegant combination of blue and yellow tones, it is the perfect, wind-sheltered place to enjoy the view over the artificial marina. A forest of cranes and skyscrapers, however, is mirrored in the window bays of the hotel, so for the moment, silence is definitely not the key asset. This is a real pity as otherwise the place is very enjoyable, with its poolside bar, wooden decks, view, etc. Sports lovers can also train on state-of-the-art fitness machines while enjoying the panoramic view through bay windows. The spa centre is divided into two parts (one for women and the other for men) and each includes 5 treatment rooms. The relaxation room offers heated deckchairs and, for once, the hairdresser's is definitely worth a visit! Once through the big doors, ladies are welcomed by hairdresser-hostesses in a place made up to look like the inside of an aircraft. Men are not allowed here, but they have access to a far more masculine universe. On the 44th floor, privileged guests can go to the lounge club that faces the 'Champagne bar' to admire the view and enjoy the various facilities on offer.

    Food and drink 9.45 /10

    There are no less than 12 restaurants and bars at the Grosvenor. At the 'Indego' gourmet restaurant, you will have the privilege of tasting delicious dishes prepared by Vineet Bhatia, one of the best Indian chefs in the world. He is the only Indian chef to have been awarded the prestigious '3AA Rosettes' in the past 6 years and he oversees other restaurants in Mauritius, Los Angeles and Moscow. The menu is varied (one doesn't know what to choose!), the service is impeccable, the restaurant's interior is stunning with bronze statues and little coves separating different areas, and the wine list is elaborate: everything you have ever dreamed of! Another one of the Grosvenor's jewels is the 'Rhodes Mezzanine', which is run by award-winning chef Gary Rhodes. His menu offers English cuisine with French influences, which you will discover in a very enjoyable and trendy neo-Baroque setting with colourful plexiglas walls. There is also a tasting option in the menu to offer you the possibility of trying a little bit of everything. Wine lovers will be won over by the list of wines from 10 different countries, while others will appreciate the choice of delicious, aesthetic cocktails. As for the Ottoman restaurant, it offers a modern version of Turkish recipes and a very warm atmosphere. Guests are also invited to eat at the 'Sloane' where they can try out the international buffets, open from 6:00am till 11:00am, from 12:30pm till 3:30pm and from 7:00pm till 11:30pm. After those hours you can always have a snack, from 11:30pm till 6:00am. A number of catering stalls in front of the open kitchens offer a variety of carefully presented foods from India, Italy (the pizzas are baked in front of you), Asia, the Middle-East, etc. You can also choose from a wide variety of salads. In the highly popular and chic 'Champagne' bar situated on the top floor, guests can enjoy a wide choice of 44 types of champagne and an array of cocktails. Seated in cream-coloured chairs on a brown wall-to-wall carpet with a cream-coloured bubble pattern, they can listen to the guest musician and the pianist every evening. The very famous Buddha Bar from Paris has also opened its doors here. It is long and narrow with high ceilings and an impressively big Buddha to keep a watchful eye on the place. It is very popular with guests and its elaborate atmosphere and Asian cuisine enjoy pride of place. If you still feel that there isn't enough choice, there are another 14 bars and restaurants at the Royal Mériden.

      • Location 1.0

      Granted the status of 'Preferred hotels and resorts', this hotel, with its quirky vertical and horizontal layout, is made up of the old and the new making it a rather conspicuous building. The plethora of services and facilities, as well as the beach, are greatly appreciated, but the flashy and kitsch nature of the place quickly becomes irritating. Located in the new marina district, the Habtoor Grand Resort and Spa is particularly ideal for families.

      • Location -

      An impeccable haven of peace and tranquillity. Part of the One and Only Royal Mirage complex of three hotels, the Arabian Court is the more intimate and grown up of the three. It also has more of an authentic Arabian style. The Residence and Spa is smaller and more old fashioned and The Palace has more of a family atmosphere. Arabian Courtyard guests can however use facilities at The Residence and The Palace. Stepping into the hotel is like crossing over into a whole other world filled with jewels, incense and rose petals. The corridors here are silent, the breeze can be heard circulating through open patios lined by immaculate lawns and flowers beds leading all the way to the sea front. For a hideaway, a break away from it all, this is the perfect place to come to if you don't want to be far from the action. The Arabian Court is perfect for couples looking to spend some quality time together, and although the hotel does sell itself as having a 'family focus', we wouldn't recommend the Arabian Court for children due to its serene atmosphere.

      Radisson Dubai Marina, not to be confused with Radisson Blu in the Creek area and Radisson Blu Media City, is the most low-key of the three properties. Tucked away in the Dubai Marina area, it is easy to miss as you drive towards the Media City area. Like the other two hotels, it is stylish but is a little more discreet. It comprises of studios which are ideal for groups of friends, families and couples alike wishing to be independent of hotel activities and restaurant opening times. Situated in a quiet area of the city, it is a good base to explore the city from as it is halfway between the sought-after Jumeira beach area and the bustling districts of Dubai. This establishment is of very good quality and value especially for a three star property. It scores high with us and is without a doubt one of our preferred hotel-residences.

      The Marriott Dubai Harbour is an example of the chain's first step into the 21st Century! Nothing like its sister hotels, the JW Marriott and the Renaissance, it is simple, contemporary, and comfortable; making the Marriott Harbour an all-round good choice. The hotel only has suites which is great for those not wanting to spend too much on wining and dining as all suites have their own fully-equipped kitchen. Groups of friends or families will find the harbour perfect for their stay as there are fun restaurants, AZ.U.R and The Observatory, as well as accommodation which lends itself very well to group stays. The slick Penthouse suite is especially fitting for large groups - or lone travellers needing a bit of space! The area, the Dubai Harbour, is fairly new and resembles an island planted with skyscrapers overlooking a lake and the sea as well Palm Island. We very-much enjoyed our stay here as the food is good, the staff is friendly, and the views are magnificent.

      The Movenpick Jumeirah Beach Hotel is the perfect all-rounder if you're going to be spending a holiday in Dubai. Situated in the up and coming Jumeirah Beach area, it is in a prime location right across the street from the main beach. A five star hotel with excellent standards and a good general holiday atmosphere, it is a great place to choose whether in a group of friends, as a family or as a couple. However, compared to other hotels in the city, the hotel lacks a stronger luxury aspect to be a five star, which is why it has been awarded four stars by our reviewing journalist, The highlight of the hotel is its wonderful pool deck, which overlooks the sea.

      A good family hotel! Comprehensive and classic facilities come together in this tower - admittedly a long way from the airport. The main thing to bear in mind about the Ramada Plaza is its large range of services thanks to its guest room-apartments. What's more, the hotel is located in a residential area with all the amenities you will need and close to one of the few public beaches in the Emirates.

      The lifestyle Armani Hotel Dubai is nothing short of stunning. With every angle and curve that has been carefully studied to give the desired effect, the hotel is without doubt one of the best in the city, which is a huge statement to make, especially in Dubai, where the standard of hotels is generally very high. Mr Armani has overseen every single detail of this hotel, from the scents used throughout the hotel, to the embossed chocolates sold in the deli on the ground floor. The result is astonishing. What separates the hotel from the rest is firstly, its location, right inside the Burj Khalifa, and second, the sense of space of the hotel. Slick, sophisticated and contemporary, the hotel is a veritable success. The only downfall is that you could be anywhere in the world as there is no reminder of the destination's culture and traditions. The hotel is best-suited to couples and friends looking for the crème de la crème in luxury.

      Part of the Leading Hotels of the World label, the prestigious H Hotel, formerly The Monarch, is unrivalled in every way and is easily one of the best, if not the best, hotel in the city. Exclusive, The H is quietly and self-satisfyingly elegant without being pretentious. Unlike the brash hotels where the quality doesn't always match expectations, The H is all about quality and sophistication, and although on the pricy side, is definitely worth saving that extra bit to stay here. Not only is the atmosphere relaxed, but the staff is friendly and efficient, and no expense has been spared to make the rooms beautiful, spacious, stylish and up to date technology-wise. Throw in a fantastic range of high quality restaurants and bars, and a good location, you have your perfect hotel! Ideal for all types of guests, whether for leisure or business, the luxurious high quality H Hotel is ideal for friend, families and couples alike. Walking into The H can be likened to the feeling of slipping into a hot steaming bath...

      The Burj Al Arab appears on the horizon, rises out of the fog along the coastline in Jumeirah, visible from skyscraper terraces all over the city, like a myth seen in books. A real gem in its architecture, seeing the legendary hotel, the only seven star hotel in the world, is like seeing the Taj Mahal in India. It is a real architectural feat that should not be dismissed for being too showy, too brash, too contemporary, but rather revered as a symbol of this city that is no less than over the top! The hotel sits quietly glimmering in the sun along a long and wide sandy beach. The interior takes a while to grow on you, but the services and facilities are irreproachable. It's definitely worth a stay at least for a night, or if it is too pricy for your budget then do drop by for tea, but book early.

The fine design, bay windows, lighting effects and grand furniture combine to make this an ulra-stylish hotel that has successfully lured some of the world's best chefs to prepare its cuisine, including the Frenchman Pierre Gagnaire. The somewhat outstanding rooms also deserve a special mention.

Far from the madding crowds, this exclusive hotel is located on the dge of Dubai not too far from the airport but in an area that feels isolated away from the hustle and bustle of the city. A real haven of peace and quiet with a smart lodge atmopshere, this hotel is ideal to get away from it all. With sparkling facilities and spacious luxurious rooms, the Desert Palm specialises in equestrian activities and even has its own stables and polo club, including three hundred horses and four polo fields. Contemporary and arty, the hotel's interiors have been closely studied to give it the sharpest aesthetic aspect possible, whilst remaining extremely simple in using natural materials and fabrics throughout.

      This is the second Atlantis hotel in the world. Is Atlantis The Palm, the flagship resort on Dubai's first Palm Island, a gem of a hotel or a monster of excess? Actually, it's both of them! It is perhaps the hotel that best represents Dubai, built as it is from scratch between the sea and the desert. A symbol of grandiose delusions, it is nothing less than a 'kingdom of superlatives'. Next to this immense and (in places) kitsch resort with its multitude of ultramodern facilities and restaurants staffed by award-winning chefs, hotel residents and day-trippers alike can enjoy a huge aquatic park. It is like a city within a city, making it ideal for families, but if you are looking for charm and intimacy, you're probably better off elsewhere!

Dripping in red and blue glass, velvet upholstered throne-like chairs and a fountain bigger than the average apartment all just in the lobby, gives this hotel a majestic appearance that is hard to rival. The service standards are top-notch and the facilities on offer are as exclusive as in the latest Mondrian in New York. The Jumeirah Hotel Group, has once again, surpassed itself with this latest addition to an already glimmering portfolio. Ideal for a wide-ranging clientele, from families to couples, the resort has something for everyone.
