Most of the worlds major hotel chains have a presence in the region such as Hiltoin, Marriot, Le Meridien, Grand Hyatt and Kempinskly.
If you’re looking for a luxury resort in Dubai then the Madinat Jumeirah is probably the best you will find in the whole of the middle east. The resort consists of 3 hotels (Al Qasr, Mina A’Salaam and Dar Al Masyaf) which are all have a 5 star rating. Each hotel as its own personality and is built in the context of Arabian courtyards. The resort has a beautiful man made waterway with abras (water taxis) and it is only a few minutes walk to the beach. The resort houses many restaurants and boutique shops.
The Jumeirah Beach hotel is another 5 star hotel in Dubai that forms part of the Madinat Jumeirah luxury resort. The hotel has a ‘wave’ like shape and isn't too far from Sheikh Zayed Road. You don’t have to be a paying guest to enjoy the restaurant food. We would recommend having a shisha in the restaurant outside accompanied by a nice drink, either tea or coffee with the Burj Al-Arab hotel in the background whilst watching the beautiful sunset.
