Dar Al Masyaf, one of three hotels of the Madinat Jumeirah Resort, has rooms and suites designed to imitate traditional Arab summer cottages and are connected by canals. Amouage toiletries are regularly replenished in the spacious bathrooms with marble accents, and hotel benefits feature daily fruit and veggies and nightly snacks. The resort is a favorite choice for families, many of whom stay there yearly because of its private beach, proximity to Wild Wadi Waterpark, and numerous on-site restaurants. Raffles Singapore is a relic of a bygone era when hotels were more than just sleeping places. Raffles The Palm Dubai is similarly constructed, providing opulent extravagance and service appropriate for its artificial setting on the Palm’s outer rim. The expansive rooms, villas, and suites of this five-star hotel in Dubai are all tastefully equipped. It is wealthy and beautiful, fusing Middle Eastern and European design elements into a spectacular whole.

The JW Marriott Marquis is the tallest hotel housed within two famous skyscrapers along Dubai’s Business Bay. It boasts a busy, club-like lobby that is frequently active and has long check-in lines, but tea and delicious dates make up for the small inconvenience. Visitors to this hotel with fresh-new, gorgeous rooms include Americans who support the JW Marriott brand and leisure visitors from India. When you hear the name “Bulgari,” an expectation is created. Bulgari Resort Dubai, one of the greatest hotels in town, is designed by one of the world’s top jewelry brands. The sun-dappled retreat is located on the distinctive Jumeira Bay, and it has 101 rooms and suites in addition to 20 Bulgari residences with pool, garden, and sea views. Interiors are just as stylish and exquisite at this location as at their London counterpart. The resort hosts a personal marina complex and the Bulgari Yacht Club, which adds even more exclusivity.
