Dubai is a city in constant transition, a city with constant new openings, be it restaurants, clubs, bars and indeed hotels. This sheer choice might be intimidation to visitors so we decided to visit one of the most established ones in a recent visit, Hotel Meliá Dubai.
The Melia name is a long established and respected one, synonymous with luxury and quality and it is this ethos that has carried over to their opening in Dubai. Located in the heart of the city Meliá Dubai is the first five star Spanish hotel in the Middle East. Designed by a Milan based architect, the hotel has a fresh, modern air geared to make guests’ stays truly exceptional. Located close to the World Trade Centre, Gold & Spice Souqs, historical Bastakiya, Dubai Museum and Dubai Creek, the hotel is perfectly situated within a short reach to Dubai’s main shopping and commercial districts like the iconic Burj Khalifa and only 10 km away from Dubai International Airport.
164 rooms and suites are housed in the hotel, each decorated in a contemporary and modern style. The 5 star hotel isalso home to the restaurant, Signature by Sanjeev Kapoor. The celebrity chef offers a delicious menu of authentic Indian fare but with a modern spin, a must.
If you plan to relax then the hotels also offers the Yhi Spa and the rooftop swimming pool, the spa offers a comprehensive menu of treatments to you can have a lazy afternoon poolside with beautiful views over the whole of Dubai.
Room rates start at £68 and you certainly get a lot, with rooms big and spacious, floor to ceiling windows, a huge king bed and a double sink bathroom with freestanding bath to soak to and relax. Staff were warm and helpful and wifi is even thrown in for free, we highly recommend a stay.
