9 Favorite this hotel — to remember it, to save it to your wish list, or simply to express yourself

Hotel Description

By Dubai’s standards this probably counts as understated. Here you can’t blame a luxury hotel for putting up a massive glass-tipped pyramid, as it’s the sort of thing you’ve got to do just to stay reasonably up to date. After all, Raffles is generally better known for unashamedly classic luxury hospitality — and only in Dubai could something so outré feel almost reassuringly tasteful.

Also reassuring is the fact that, when it comes to the nuts and bolts of the place, the Raffles Dubai is every bit the equal of its far-East sisters — though perhaps a touch bigger and bolder, understandably. From the creature comforts in the rooms and suites to the comprehensive list of services it’s a perfectly respectable five-star affair.

The original pyramids weren’t known for their views, what with the stone walls and everything, but this one’s got that bit figured out: every room and suite has a terrace with panoramic views of the ever-changing city skyline.

The best view, however, is found at the apex of the pyramid, where the RED Lounge offers far-ranging views, striking contemporary décor and excellent Chinese cuisine. Plus you can get a drink there, which certainly isn’t true of every restaurant in Dubai.
