A round-up of the best boutique hotels in Dubai

Charming, small-scale places to stay on your next visit to Dubai

If you’re a traveller who loves staying in small-scale accommodation, Dubai has plenty of options to suit. Here are some of our best boutique hotels that are sure to add a special element to your getaway.

XVA Gallery Art Hotel & Café

If you’re staying close to Dubai Creek and keen to really explore the historic district of Al Fahidi, XVA features 13 rooms that border three leafy courtyards, where you can enjoy a leisurely breakfast before heading out for daily excursions. During your stay, be sure to explore the on-site gallery and boutiques stocking handmade wares.

Vida Downtown Dubai

If you’re after a chic place to stay close to Dubai’s top Downtown landmarks (we’re looking at you, Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall), then Vida should be top of your list. The hotel is equipped with everything you could possibly need during your stay – and if you happen to be here on a weekend, the Friday brunch at the all-day dining restaurant 3 in 1 is a fun, poolside affair.

Manzil Downtown Dubai

A stone’s throw from Vida is the equally charming Manzil Downtown Dubai, which takes a decidedly more Arabic approach in its interior design, with Arabic letter artwork stenciled above the beds and hanging on the walls of each room and suite. Located in the centre of the property is The Courtyard restaurant – eating Mediterranean and Arabic cuisine surrounded by the hotel’s sandstone walls makes for a nice escape just a hop, skip and a jump from Burj Khalifa.

Noon Hotel Apartments

XVA isn’t the only boutique offering to showcase regional art. Just minutes from Mall of the Emirates is Noon Hotel Apartments, a tribute to Arabian art. The hotel comprises one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites, as well as a restaurant, swimming pool and sauna. The real highlight is the on-site gallery, which exhibits the works of artists Najat Makki (UAE), Ali Hassan (Qatar), and Khaled Slimane (Tunisia). The gallery also hosts special exhibition evenings throughout the year.

Per Aquum Desert Palm

Rolling green fields, luxurious rooms and stand-out service – the intimate setting of Per Aquum (located at the lush Desert Palm Polo Club) makes this boutique offering a standout escape. Accommodation ranges from the Palm Deluxe Rooms with views over the pool and gardens, to 585-square-metre Villa Layali, complete with its own open-air courtyard and pool. For relaxation it’s hard to go past a complete treatment at the on-site Lime Spa.
