Ticking most boxes, this is perfect for those who want to get away from the city centre, but still have entertainment on their doorstep. Asserting Dubai's famous motto— big is best— with its vast ceilings and palatial splendour, this opulent hotel offers everything from a luxurious spa, large pool area, gym, beach, several restaurants, bars, boutiques, cinema room, nightlife venues; Music Hall (the much loved Beirut institution) and Supperclub (famously hailing from Amsterdam). Rooms are Ottoman and Asian inspired with huge marble bathtubs and spacious balconies. The Royal Residences, a 'gated community' of four/five bedroom houses with direct 'lagoon' or private beach access and pools are available for those who require more space and privacy.
