An exquisite hotel with plush Indian-inspired design and fantastic city views.
Its bottle-green exterior gives little away but inside, this hotel brings an element of splendour to Dubai. Inspired by its Indian roots as part of the award-winning Taj Hotels, guests can expect lavish décor and impressively personalised service. It has the feel of an intimate, boutique hotel with the smooth efficiency of an established brand. Its location is a big draw too – it’s just five minutes from Downtown Dubai and has rare top-to-bottom views of Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. Both the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall are reachable by a 20-minute walk, or guests can make use of the hotel’s complimentary shuttle.
There’s attention to detail throughout, whether it’s staff anticipating your next drink before you do or the spiciness of a dish cooked exactly to your liking. Dining options include amazing curries at Bombay Brasserie, refined buffet and à la carte dining at international restaurant Tesoro and Mediterranean light bites at Treehouse where you’ll get great Burj Khalifa views from the rooftop. A particular favourite is the traditional afternoon tea served at Byzantium Lounge. Guests can make the most of the Jiva Spa where treatments feature spice scrubs and aromatic oils.
The rooms and suites all feature city views, with the Burj Khalifa visible from Luxury Burj View Rooms. The décor is warm with neutral furnishings and subtle Indian prints, and each en suite comes with a bath tub and Molton Brown toiletries. Families in need of a little more space can make use of the extra sofa bed in the larger Luxury Family Rooms.
