Set in the bustling commercial and business district of Deira, the Taj gives you privileged access to global headquarters and convention centres while also being close to all you need for shopping and leisure. The international airport is just a 15-minute drive away, and nearby you can get easily to cultural attractions such as Arabian bazaars, museums and more.
Combining ancient Indian healing techniques with modern know-how, the Taj spa offers massages, skin, body and beauty treatments among six calming rooms. Sauna and steam rooms are also the perfect way to relax after a busy day. Be sure to book one of the soothing remedies, from Arabian White Musk with its mud wrap and skin-firming session, to chocolate- and coconut-infused experiences.
A selection of cosy, comfortable rooms and suites can be found at the Taj, which boasts 147 executive rooms, 10 executive suites and two royal suites, together with 90 serviced apartments, decorated and furnished to high-specifications. Check in here and expect private balconies or patios with city views, 32-inch flatscreen TVs, and personal touches from bathrobes and slippers to Gilchrist & Soames toiletries. Suites offer over 120 sq m of space and some even have private butlers and in-room sauna and Jacuzzi.
Whether you want to book tickets to concerts and shows, arrange bespoke shopping trips or just plan a day seeing the sights yourself – perhaps in your own private limousine – the concierge here will be only too happy to oblige. Though you will also find the facilities at the hotel first-rate and it’s worth staying in for the fitness centre with cardio and free weights, steam and sauna rooms and rooftop pool with Jacuzzi.
A banquet of Middle Eastern delights awaits at Al Waha restaurant, which serves up mouthwatering mezze and grills that explore the region’s cuisine, including the freshest vegetables, fish and meats. You may want to book for dinner at Handi, which brings its award-winning north Indian cuisine to Dubai’s diners through its array of tandoori and biryani dishes. A la carte dining at Le Rendezvous has an international array of flavours and a casual, friendly ambiance. You can also dine on Japanese at Sakura, which has sushi and teppanyaki well covered.
