The Royal Treatment
Treat yourself to a night or two in one of Dubai’s most luxurious hotel rooms
When it comes to luxury, there’s little more luxurious experiences than a stay in an opulent hotel suite. And when it comes to decadent hotel suites, no city in the world can compete with Dubai. Here are seven of the best:
The Royal Suite, Burj Al Arab
The ultimate palatial experience, the 780-square-metre Royal Suite at Burj Al Arab is about as decadent as a sleepover can get. Aside from the two bedrooms, private dining room, private lift and in-suite cinema, it’s the little touches like a team of butlers, 24-carat gold iPads and a choice between 17 types of pillows that make this suite truly special.
Price: from AED39,500 per night
The Royal Bridge Suite, Atlantis The Palm
Positioned in the unique location at the top of Atlantis’ iconic arch, the Royal Bridge Suite is the accommodation of choice for A-list rock stars, having hosted the likes of The Killers and Kings of Leon after they played the popular Sandance festival. A private spa, games and media centre, and a private, guarded entrance are just some of the features that attract the elite.
Price: from AED78,000 per night.
The Dubai Suite, Armani Hotel
Understated elegance is the order of the day in the Armani Dubai suite, where every one of the 390 square metres has been personally designed by Giorgio Armani. Occupying the entire 39th floor of the Burj Khalifa, the suite features two bedrooms and offers spectacular views across the city.
Price: from AED36,000 per night.
The Grand Imperial Suite, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray
Spread over 310 square metres of Ottoman-inspired opulence, the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray’s Grand Imperial Suite is designed to be the ultimate couples retreat, with a private spa, kitchen and butler service all serving the one master bedroom.
Price: from AED19,000 per night.
The Royal Suite, The Four Seasons Dubai Jumeirah Beach
Located on the penthouse floor of the new Four Seasons at Jumeirah Beach, the Royal Suite is 600 square metres of pure luxury and elegance. A grand piano, exquisite artwork and a built-in marble bar make this one of the most tasteful suites in town.
Price: from AED32,000 per night.
The Royal Suite, Raffles Dubai
Found on ‘The Dubai Floor’ of Raffles – an entire floor dedicated to the hotel’s suites – the Royal Suite is the most luxurious accommodation the hotel offers. Not only is the suite accessed via a private lift and comes with a private butler, chef and chauffeur, but every last detail of the room, right down to the scent, can be customised to suit one’s personal preference.
Price: from AED25,000 per night.
Royal Malakiya Villa, Dar Al Masyaf, Madinat Jumeirah
More of a residence than a suite, the Royal Malakiya Villa, located in the peaceful garden of the Dar Al Masyaf Madinat Jumeirah is the ultimate escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. A private plunge pool and beach access make this 644-square-metre sanctuary ideal for those who want to take in the great outdoors.
