The chic 5-star Oberoi in Dubai, is a contemporary luxury landmark hotel in the Oberoi Centre – a commercial complex including an office block – overlooking the iconic Burj Khalifa – the tallest building in the world. It’s well located 20km from Dubai airport, in the emerging business Bay district of downtown Dubai, and the extended end of Dubai Creek. The surroundings, from its split-level lobby with its high ceilings, leather seats and huge crystal chandelier, and spacious contemporarily styled guest rooms convey a modern aesthetic.
Choose from a generous selection of treatments at the plush Oberoi spa, including Ayurvedic-inspired rituals, touch therapies and facials.
The 252 guest rooms and suites are particularly spacious and elegantly designed, with timber floors, rich fabrics, hand-tufted rugs and specially commissioned artwork adding a personal, homely touch. Guests will enjoy floor-to-ceiling windows offering spectacular views of the city’s skyline. Amenities are luxurious, including twice daily housekeeping, Nespresso coffee machines, daily fruit and flowers, pillow menu, internet access, iPod docking stations, and thick terry robes.
The upmarket residential area of Jumeirah Beach is about 15 minutes' drive away. In 20 minutes, you can be at the oldest building in Dubai, which is now home to the Dubai Museum; while a short water taxi trip across the creek, you’ll find the Gold Souk selling well-priced jewellery. Back at the hotel, there’s a fitness centre, infinity pool and complimentary yoga sessions on offer every evening at 6pm.
The ground floor also accommodates three restaurants, offering Indian, Asian and Western cuisine. Nine7One serves Arabic, Asian and Western options overlooking a courtyard, with outdoor seating. Chefs cook up a Japanese feast in open kitchens at Umai, while Ananta offers an authentic Indian menu. Up on the 27th floor, a rooftop bar, Iris, is the place to go for cocktails with a view of the Burj Khalifa.
