Bougie Hotels You’ll Only Find in Dubai
If you’re coming to Dubai for a proper escape and are down to live that baller lifestyle, then we’ve got a list of the most luxurious and extra hotels that you can find in the city…

Burj Al Arab

If you know anything about Dubai, then chances are you’ve probably heard of the super famous 7 star hotel, the Burj Al Arab. Yes, it might seem crazy to process but there actually is a hotel out there that’s good enough to go not one, but two notches up from the excellence of a classic 5 star hotel. As far as we know, the hotel’s reputation definitely lives up to its rating and price (we haven’t had the chance to take a peak yet), due to its impressive architectural design, gold/marble interiors, decadent suites featuring beds that are positioned on rotating pedestals, in-house butlers, private beach, location and impeccable service.

Ritz Carlton

The Ritz is one of those hotel chains that’s made its mark within the luxury hospitality sector. There’s two locations in Dubai: one recently built in JBR and one close to Gate Village. We’re not going to get much more into the description of this one, since it’s already widely recognized for being one of the top hotels out there. Check it out for yourself, if for no other reason than to say that you’re “staying at the Ritz”.

FIVE Palm Jumeriah

Recently opened, the FIVE Palm Jumeirah is an incredible feat in architecture as it’s modeled after a DNA double helix. It’s the epitome of luxury, from its detail orientated and modern design to the high tech technology that customers find inside. Located on Dubai’s iconic Palm, the views couldn’t be more picture perfect. You’ll find some of the most amazing dining experiences, bars, clubs, etc. If you can’t afford to stay here the night, then we’d highly recommend dropping by just to check out the building and marvel in its beauty.

One & Only The Palm

This hotel definitely has a big reputation to live up to considering the name that they assigned to themselves, but we can assure you that they don’t dissapoint! The architecture takes inspiration from Moorish and Andalusian styles, with a very unique design that can’t be compared to any other. You can feel the elegance busting through the place just as you step in. The rooms have their own private balconies and suites with their own pools, fine dining options and the best staff you can find!


This is one of the most famous hotels in the city and has been around since 2008, tourists and residents alike have praised it for years. Not only is the hotel aesthetically gorgeous (as shown in the instagram picture below) it’s also home to one of the biggest water parks in the world, 17 of its 46 hectares are dedicated to the water park. There’s even the option to swim with dolphins, which is always a popular activity for the kids. There’s an incredible aquiarum (some suites even have views looking out to it) and an underwater restaurant. From the moment you walk in, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to another world full of magic and wonder.
