The very epitome of luxury, Waldorf Astoria Dubai is located on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah, an incredible manmade island connected to the mainland by a bridge and an under-sea tunnel. Claimed to be the ‘Eighth Wonder of the World’, the tree-shaped island is surrounded by azure blue sparkling waters, while this lavish palace of a hotel has its own private stretch of white-sand beach.
Beach-inspired tones of aqua and sand give the elegant rooms and suites at Waldorf Astoria Dubai a restful feel. All have sumptuous marble bathrooms and high-definition TVs, while most have views of the Arabian Gulf and the city skyline. The Premier Suites offer access to the private Waldorf Astoria Lounge – an exclusive sanctuary with breathtaking views, complimentary breakfast, and drinks and snacks served during the day and evening.
A once-in-a-lifetime destination, Dubai is a place of extremes, from Palm Jumeirah, which is the largest artificial island in the world, to Burj Khalifa – the world’s tallest building where the views are incredible. The shopping is world-class, too, with everything from high-end boutiques to colourful souks where you can haggle for bargains. There are even ski slopes in the desert – at Ski Dubai, the first indoor snow centre in the Middle East. Alternatively, just relax beside the Waldorf Astoria’s two pools or on the pristine beach.
Dine on three-starred Michelin food at the Waldorf Astoria Dubai’s Social by Heinz Beck, or sample modern Southeast Asian cuisine at LAO. There’s also a relaxed brasserie, a poolside bar, indulgent afternoon tea at Peacock Alley and night-time entertainment and cocktails at Serafina Bar.
