The Lap Of Luxury – The Raffles Hotel – Dubai

The Raffles Hotel Dubai is strikingly beautiful! Built in a pyramid shape, the building is anchored with heavy, hieroglyphic inscribed steel and stone columns at the entrance.

Glass throughout the upper floors gives the hotel a light and modern look and the view of the building is as spectacular as the view from within. From the unusually large, suite-like rooms, guests are treated to a view of the entire skyline of the vibrant emirate of Dubai. In the lobby, dark floors, stone columns, again echoing the ancient Egyptian motif, and gold accents provide a rich setting that softens the bright desert sun that floods the space. The solid, modern and timeless aesthetic is reflected throughout the hotel’s amenities.

To honor Dubai’s status as a destination for luxury shopping, the hotel entered a partnership with high-end shoe design house, Manolo Blahnik, to create a distinctive addition to the menu at the Raffles’ famous afternoon tea. Through this unique collaboration, a miniature version of a Manolo Blahnik stiletto shoe is rendered in chocolate and placed atop the tiered cake tray that accompanies the tea service.
Another unique delicacy is the exclusive Raffles 1915 gin from Sipsmith, a world-renowned artisanal distillery in London. The hotel has partnered with Sipsmith to create this bespoke gin which is available exclusively in Raffles hotels worldwide.

As a full-service luxury hotel, the Raffles Dubai boasts an excellent spa on the premises, offering a variety of European, Asian and Middle-Eastern services designed for refreshment and rejuvenation there is also the property’s spectacular pool which sits on a large deck, surrounded by fountains and includes a swim-up bar. Seven fine dining restaurants are also available on the property to cater to a wide variety of tastes.

The Raffles Hotel Dubai truly provides guests with an eye opening experience of luxury in one of the world’s foremost destinations.
