Hotel Description

One doesn’t visit Dubai with an eye towards subtlety, or towards intimate scale. The Madinat Jumeirah complex is massive, somewhere around a thousand rooms, all scattered amid the terraced gardens by the side of the Arabian Gulf. It’s made more manageable, though, by the distinctly Emirati practice of dividing these mega-resorts into several discrete hotels — in this case three of them, the best of which is the hilltop palace of Al Qasr.

It’s something of an island as well, as strange as a hilltop island sounds — waterways link the various mansions and villas of Madinat Jumeirah, and they surround Al Qasr, for an added measure of exclusivity. With just short of three hundred rooms, Al Qasr’s not small itself — but from within any one of them, it’s hard not to feel like an honored guest, so typically excessive are the spaces and equipment.

What’s not excessive, mercifully, is the style, which is marvelously restrained, for Dubai especially. The seaside setting makes a mockery of the new downtown skyscraper hotels, and the greater Madinat Jumeirah complex lacks for nothing in terms of diversions, or culinary options — a fairly long stay could be spent entirely on site, shopping, swimming, taking spa treatments and trying (in vain) to visit all of the restaurants.
