In a little over 25 years Dubai has exploded skyward, from an Arabian backwater into one of the most dynamic and visually impressive cities on Earth. It has grown at an incredible speed; 40 years ago there wasn’t a single high-rise in Dubai. Today, there are giant islands in the shape of palm trees that can be seen from space and the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.
Dubai is one of the seven states of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and is ruled by a Royal Dynasty with a vision and ambition to drive Dubai’s phenomenal growth. The discovery of oil reserves in the 1960s transformed the area from a simple fishing village into a powerful financial center and transport hub. As the oil reserves began to dwindle, the city turned its attention firmly to tourism.
One of Dubai’s biggest attractions is its shopping. Explore the glittering streets of the Gold Souk in search of jewelry bargains, or get lost in retail heaven for the day in Dubai Mall, one of the world’s biggest shopping centers. This mall features more than 1,000 stores, an aquarium and indoor theme park.
Dubai offers attractions which defy the harsh arid environment. Stand in awe in front of the Dubai Fountain, the world’s largest dancing fountain, or grab your skis and cut through real snow at the indoor ski resort of Ski Dubai.
There’s more to Dubai than just man-made opulence. Relax on beautiful beaches, explore nature-rich wetlands and discover the magical desert environment at the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve.
The superb climate makes Dubai a year-round destination. If you are not used to temperatures that can top 104 F (40 C), the best times to visit are during the winter and spring months.
Dubai has an excellent public transport system with more than 50 bus routes, water taxis and a metro system. If you prefer to drive, rental companies will indulge your automotive wishes, offering Hummers and Italian dream cars, as well as more humble vehicles.

Two nights in hotel great location on the Marina. Staff are excellent room was spacious with view over pool and Marina. Poolside restaurant was good but the other options were limited however many restaurants on the Marina.
The resort is great so is the staff but they need to update their TV channels there are only few channels plus it would not allow us to connect via blue tooth to toutube or netflex so we can watch what we liked they need to have smart TV
Rooms are big and clean. Service is good as well..
This hotel is located on the Palm jumeirah. The beach is OK, all facilities including the pool were closed during my stay. The hotel is a little old, but quite clean.
Amazing place and amazing service ! After. Perfect welcome, after seeing our room we fell in love with the hotel. The staff were perfect so friendly and attentive. The choices of pools was great and the general atmosphere very relaxing
The hotel has a very nice concept in terms of amenities, layout and design for frequent travellers.
