Shangri-La, Dubai

The Shangri-La Dubai is lavish, opulent and stylish, everything you’d expect from this luxurious and trusted hotel brand.

Located in the heart of the city, just five minutes from the World Trade Centre, the Dubai Convention Centre, the Dubai International Financial Centre, as well as famous malls and paradisiacal beaches, it makes for an ideal base for both business and leisure breaks.

Rooms are large and sumptuous with smooth wood-paneled walls, soft lighting, earthy tones and local artwork. As well as comfy beds with mountains of pillows and oversized tubs in the bathrooms, they also have snug areas for relaxing and working.

With so much on offer here, it’s a wonder guests have time to leave the hotel at all. Revitalise after your journey at the CHI The Spa or relax with a deluxe treatment and a massage. Those who want to stay active while abroad will have no problem here in the fully equipped gym or on the tennis and squash courts. There is of course an outdoor swimming pool too, providing the perfect oasis of calm in the heart of bustling Dubai.

Visitors will be spoilt for choice when it comes to eating here with not one, but five dining venues, everything from a branch of the Michelin-starred Junoon Indian restaurant in New York, to Shang Palace offering traditional Cantonese cuisine and Hoi An serving up modern day Vietnamese creations. That’s not including the laidback all-day Dunes Café or The Act Dubai – a flamboyant dining and theatre venue.

End your nights here with a relaxing drink at the sophisticated Balcony Bar, with unrivalled city views or party it up at ikandy ultralounge, a chic rooftop space with live DJs playing throughout the evening and delicious signature cocktails.
