Get a Touch of the Whimsy with a Dubai Hotel Booking at Raffles

If there ever was a hotel built with shameless flamboyance in mind, then it is Raffles Dubai. With its iconic pyramidal shape, the hotel is as much of a landmark as what the Burj Al Arab is.
The hotel is located in Oud Metha and is connected to Wafi Mall via a private corridor. The location of this 5-star luxury hotel in Dubai makes it very accessible from nearly all major quarters of the city like Deira and Sheikh Zayed Road (the Bur Dubai area especially).

hotel booking in UAEdone at Raffles is a wonderful experience and is viewed as a novelty of sorts among the tourists visiting Dubai. Egyptian elements resonate throughout the décor and design of the hotel, intermingling with Singaporean and Arabian aesthetics in some places.

The hieroglyphs engraved on the walls are absolutely authentic and are largely stories of Egyptian myths and legends. Each of the suites is a testament to the four elements- wind, water, fire and air with guests being assigned to any one.
The same theme continues in the adjacent botanical gardens, which are touted as one of Dubai’s finest. A Dubai hotel bookingdone at Raffles will definitely not disappoint you, as you will not want for fascinating sights. The tip of the 19-storey hotel is made entirely of glass and at night makes for a remarkable sight.
For couples honeymooning in Dubai and in need of opulent luxury that does not need to be justified, head to Raffles Dubai. Our Abu Dhabi travel company can take care of your hotel booking in UAE as well as any Dubai City activities you wish to enjoy.

Dubai City Activities to Enjoy – Wine Trails, Falconry & Infinity Pools

Apart from run-of-the-mill activities like camel rides or a dhow cruise in Dubai there exists a long list of things you can experience and do in Dubai.

Like letting out your inner sommelier. Given that Dubai is a favorite among the haute ton,

ect wine to soothe your palate is not a difficult task. Many hotels like the Desert Palm offer wine tasting and wine dinners on a periodic basis.

The Thai restaurant chain, Blue Elephant at the Al Bustan Rotana Hotel and Casa Mia at the Le Meridian are two other addresses where you can expect to be awed by their extensive wine lists. The latter even won an ‘Award for Excellence’ in 2007 for the splendid choice it offers.

Next on your list while sightseeing in Dubai is a safari tour in Dubai, that includes falconry on its list of activities. A falconry display (as the package is generally called) involves birds like eagles, falcons and owls and gives the observer a chance to partake in a ubiquitouslyArabian adventure experience.

Our Abu Dhabi travel company can arrange for a Dubai car rentalto take you to falcon reserves for an up-close view of the birds in their natural habitat.

 

Infinity pools used to be something of a bonus for those who would travel to enjoy the high life in Dubai. While they do exist in many countries, the sense of peace and calm that assails a person while ensconced in an infinity pool overlooking a wadi, the busy cityscape or sparse desert is a sensation like no other.
Dadabhai Travels can arrange for bookings at hotel apartments in Dubai offering such an amenity or direct you to other places in the city offering them.

Things To Do In The Night During Your Sightseeing In Dubai Experience

One thing that can be said about Dubai with definite certainty is the city’s commitment to pandering to different cultures. Perhaps one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the Middle East, Dubai boasts of a foreigner population made up of more then 1.2 million people.
While preserving its Arabic sensibilities, Dubai is a trifle more lenient with the dress, alcohol consumption and religious laws. Travelers coming for a bit of sightseeing in Dubai need to note that the only places where alcohol can be consumed are the hotels in Dubai, which house almost all of the nightclubs and pubs and a select few bars around town.
The racecourses are a different matter though, with the government granting a special permit for alcohol consumption last year when the Dubai World Cup coincided with the Prophet’s birthday.

Some really great places you can quench your thirsty palate during your Dubai City Tours are at the Atlantis, Carter’s (which happens to have an oxygen bar as well), Hard Rock Café, the Irish Village, Trilogy at the Madinat Al Jumeirah and the aircrew favorite Zinc.

Besides these party spots, you could request your Dubai Tour Packages to include a Dhow Cruise in Dubai or book an Italian opera extravaganza. Puccini’s La Boheme and the Nutcracker Ballet are two productions that feature in the event list for the coming months.
You can even take out children for shows like the Jack and the Beanstalk show and the Magical Music of Walt Disney children’s show. Why should they miss out on all the fun.

The Cream Of Luxury Hotels In Dubai Called Atlantis

Almost every photograph I have come across of the Atlantis resort tends to be a fine specimen of imagery. It is almost as if this jewel of the Palm Jumeirah is a lesson in traditional Arab aesthetics itself!
Most tourists who visit the U.A.E. make it a point to visit the man-made islands constructed in Dubai waters, commonly known as the Palm islands. While there is no shortage of luxury hotels in Dubai, a stay at any of the coveted hotels dotting the Palm islands is an experience in itself.
The Atlantis resort however, is a feat of Arab architecture and tends to overwhelm the senses. This beautiful 5-star resort also happens to house the tallest and fastest free fall water slide in the Middle East (it has a drop of 27.5 metres).
For those travelers with a yen for the opulent, this luxury hotel in Dubai would be the ultimate treat with an

efficient five-star service and £13,000/night stay. However, if the price is too steep for you, you could simply make your Dubai hotel bookingat another location and head over to the Atlantis and soak in some spectacular sightseeing in Dubai.

One World can take care of your hotel booking in U.A.E. at the Atlantis or recommend you another location. Our Abu Dhabi travel company suggests you take a look at the Lost Chambers under the Ambassador Lagoon at the Atlantis- its construction promises to give you a glimpse of the original Atlantis, albeit a sunken one.
Let One World know if you would like to have some help in charting out your travel plans at the Atlantis or elsewhere.
